Some dining tables make such a bold statement that they can easily become an eye-catcher in any room. Let me introduce some of the coolest dining table designs. I am sure you will love it.
Sapienstone Smart Slab from Kram / Weisshaar is a new composite table that integrates Iris Ceramica’s heating, cooling and motion detection technology directly into oversized ceramic plates.

In the meantime, cooling elements are strategically placed along the table to keep champagne bottles perfectly chilled.
The Juggler Table was developed for elegant dining and is the modern interpretation of a dining table by SAYAR & GARIBEH from Beirut, which is inspired by Lebanese culture, cuisine and tradition.

The juggler table sits on white marble legs and features ceramic plates and bowls of various sizes and heights that sit flush in a cloud-like frame.
Duffy London has added a dining table to the Abyss collection. The dynamic object is made of glass and high quality wood from forests managed by the Forest Stewardship Council.

Design student Austeja Platukyte created the SWALLOW table to bring people together. The clever design is ready for your own table decoration with built-in slots for a tablecloth.

The rods slide out to allow the cloth to come off when you want it to.
Industrial furnishings from everyday life were the inspiration for Atlas, a table from Sheffield. The strong steel structure is softened by the natural solid oak tabletop. The made-to-measure steel frame of the legs, in which each component effortlessly clicks into place, enables the table to be assembled or disassembled quickly in a few minutes. The table can be used as a desk or a dining table because its design is universal.
Since the kitchen is the heart of the house, the dining table is an important piece of furniture. When we’re not eating, we’re doing work or the kids are doing homework, so we’re constantly pacing between our various needs. What we need is a great table that meets all needs. Talk about multifunctionality – the Table for Two designed by Daniel Liss combines several functions in one. It not only serves as a desk for two people, but also as a spacious dining table for six people.
This is a cool variant for every big city apartment – picNYC table by Haiko Cornelissen Architecten. The table is made of aluminum with a unique tabletop – it is covered with green lawn grass. What can be more natural than some food on the grass? It’s a great opportunity to enjoy a meal and a piece of real nature. The grass needs to be well cared for and if neglected it can give the house a depressing look! Since it’s organic, it also rots and gets spoiled. Green revolution will come to every home!
