We think it’s therefore more important than ever to stop and take a second to appreciate the tranquility of the home.

Because today we’re unveiling our newest solid oak furniture range for your perusal, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Solid Oak Dining Tables of Style

It’s all about style at no expense to function with this newest range, let us take you through a look through the fine features and details you can come to expect with this Nordic furniture range.


Table Tops Fit For Any Modern Dining Room

These exquisite oak finishes are lacquered in two trademark shades. Firstly, the whitewash natural oak colour is sure to fit into many homes, a pale grain with hints of grey and milky washed out tones. The lacquer seals in the quality and ensures against the wear of day to day use. We think this shade of solid oak furniture is perhaps the most representative of traditional scandi furniture and therefore will slide into homes all the easier. Secondly, there’s the moody and sultry dark oak lacquer solid oak dining table, a smokey shade that’s typified by a deep brown grain and has been brushed and lovingly smoothed to give a tactile appearance and touch. This tone would look lovely in many surroundings but definitely leans into farmhouse styled kitchens or dining rooms too, we feel. Both table shades benefit from a finger jointed interlocking surface, similar to how parquet flooring works, where the solid oak panels lock together to create a pleasing varied kind of patchwork effect. We’re seriously into it, and think you will be too.


Two Sizes Built to Extend

We’ve ensured there’s two different lengths to choose from, the 1.7 metre and the 2.2 metre. The more compact table is ideal for apartments or dining rooms/kitchens that don’t have a ton of space to play with, as is it will seat 6 at capacity. The 2.2 metre Kitsilano solid oak dining tables are great for families or frequent hosting, and will fit 8 people at a capacity squeeze. If the numbers are still feeling a bit weak for this scandi furniture fret not! These tables can very easily be extended with thr Kitsilano Extension leaf, which ever so easily slots into the ends and represents an exact surface match of the solid oak furniture. Each leaf will add two diners, typically. So a 2.2 metre Kitsilano table with 2 leafs will cram in a whopping 12 diners (maybe more if you don’t mind elbow grazing!)


Nordic Furniture is Pure Style

There’s no two ways about it, Scandinavian styled furniture has long been a beacon of irrepressible home style and we think the Kitsilano Dining Range really suits a modern dinning room. There’s sleek purposely slimmed down surfaces to savour, tapered legs to enjoy and an elegant ballast bar binding the tables together pleasingly.


Dining Sets and Brunswick Dining Seats

A modern take on a traditional Windsor design so effortlessly pairs with these tables, it felt amiss to not get them together. There’s the 3 tones to choose from in the chair and 2 for the bench. These appealing tones really give that pop of bright and breezy colour where needed, or alternatively use the black to trim down the pomp. Each chair or bench is lacquer coated for quality. There’s also pre-determined dining sets to check out, which benefit from an inbuilt 10% saving, each has a unique arrangement of chairs/bench but there’s also a possibility to mix and match Brunswick chair colours to make your dream set – get in contact with our customer care team to discuss this opportunity!

Can you tell we’re enamoured with this new solid oak furniture collection!? We hope you’ll enjoy this sleek Nordic furniture too.
