Designer’s Choice- Modern Heirlooms by Dona W.

Posted on Apr 17, 2017 in Blog


When this table arrived in the store I was so excited.  Typically, round tables become oval when leaves are inserted; and finding one with self –storing leaves is rare.  Imagine my delight to find that this 54” round table extended to a 70” round AND had self-storing leaves.

The mechanism on this table is amazing!  You expand the table by sliding the pie shaped leaves outward and bring the hidden leaves forward; it all fits together like a giant puzzle. There are no heavy leaves to store and haul out and the whole process takes about a minute.  I thought it was so ingenious and modern!  Imagine my surprise when I learned the mechanics of this round expanding table was created in the Victorian Era C.1835.

I enjoy showing this beautiful table more than any other piece of furniture in the store because of the delight and wonder it elicits from customers.  I invite you to come in and see for yourself why this quality, unique, table would be perfect for the casual lifestyles of today and become a family heirloom!
