Choose the finish for you

We use a combination of solid wood and natural wood veneers to create beautiful furniture that's strong, long-lasting and far less likely to twist or warp than solid wood alone. Each piece is unique as natural wood's knots and grains vary.

Our wood effect ranges have all the beauty of natural wood but need a lot less care. The uniform finish also gives you the same great look across the entire range.

For a distinctly modern finish, our high gloss ranges bring a cool edge to any room. Some of our ranges are available in black or white with glass table tops for extra protection.

Contemporary and stylish, glass works particularly well in kitchen-diners as its clear surface doesn't clash with other finishes. We use toughened safety glass across our entire range.

The more the merrier

Every now and then we all need to make room for a few more people round the table. Extending tables mean there’s more elbow room for everyone. Clever extending leaves let you make more space in an instant. So however big your family is there’s an extending table that will work for you. Most of our dining tables come with 4 chairs. If you’d like seating for more people or fancy adding a little colour and contrast, then you can choose extra chairs separately or mix and match to suit you.
