Dining table in quarter-sawn oak 240cm x 75cm x 72cm

The clients have a long narrow dining area and a large and social family.
The brief was to create a dining table that would fit the space - with chairs at either end and two long benches either side: so far so good. The challenge was to design the chairs and benches in such a way that they could be pushed UNDER the table and out of the way when not needed.

In order for the benches to fit completely under the table without interfereing with the table legs and with the chairs at either end, the bench seat folds back.
