As specialists in crafting quality dining furniture for almost 50 years, we have plenty of experience and knowledge when it comes to what works… We’re particularly passionate about Dining Tables as we understand their role in most households. The Dining Room is a central point for people to gather, so you should have a dining table worthy of these special moments. Consider daily meals, growing families, and special occasions shared with family and friends…. It’s far more than just a ‘dining table’.

In particular, we are passionate about handcrafting Extendable Dining Tables (and there’s something particularly special about a Nordic Design extension table). Take a look at our popular Strata Extension Suite. An elegant fully upholstered dining chair paired with the Strata Extension table, all handcrafted in Tasmanian Blackwood – a winning combination in our books!

Of course, we also offer modern extendable table designs. For example, take a look at the Mason Extendable Table which features a timber top with a sleek black base. While both of these tables are quite popular, the design possibilities are ongoing… Combine multiple designs or let us design something entirely custom for your dining table.

So, let’s talk more about the benefits of having an extendable dining table…

Functional, Designer Dining

No matter if you prefer a traditional rectangular dining table or something more detailed, we can help you create a design that’s functional and stylish. Do you have extended family or a group of friends that come around for special occasions? If so, then an extendable table is ideal to host these extra guests. Make entertaining simplified and more enjoyable by having unlimited space. It’s so convenient having something that’s the right size for everyday use but can be made bigger to accommodate more people when needed. Just let us know your requirements and we can help you determine the best design to suit your needs.

Consider how much available space you have in your dining room as well. Perhaps it’s an unusually shaped space or even a little narrow? We suggest no matter what kind of space you have, an Extendable Dining Table is always a great choice. As each of our tables gets individually made, you can design a table based on your available space and determine the right dimensions to (comfortably) make the most of your space. You’ll never run out of room for those big gatherings again – and of course, it allows for the most comfortable dining experience imaginable, with plenty of room to move. We can transform almost any style of dining table into an extension, so come in to see the wide range of options available.

While a rectangular dining table is most common, we also offer round to oval and square to rectangle options for extendable tables. As each table is individually crafted in our local furniture factory, it allows you to customise a table to your preferred specifications. The option to have a dining table featuring an extension mechanism is quite special, so we get especially excited when crafting these for our clients.

The Technical Benefits

In our Showroom, we have a variety of extendable tables on display. This allows you to experience the craftsmanship up close. Our extension mechanism is extremely comfortable to use, with central timber panels that appear from beneath and spread gently to seamlessly form extra table top. This easy-to-use system means no strain on yourself or the table, which ensures the longevity of your piece. Let us demonstrate the functionality for you while talking through timber selections and design possibilities. We always ensure durability, comfort, and function when choosing a Nordic Design extension table.

Of course, complete the suite with some designer Dining Chairs that are built to last a lifetime. Once again, you can customize these to your comfort level and with any upholstery and timber you choose. Your dining furniture should never compromise comfort, aesthetics, or function – and at Nordic Design we understand that. If you’re looking for a complete suite, we also offer other dining room furniture such as buffets, display cabinets, and wall units. Available for crafting in the same timber selection, with internal features to suit your needs…. Consider a complete dining suite when you speak to us.

Each week we craft multiple dining suites – and specifically with extendable tables. We love seeing different shapes and selections being combined to create unique settings. Why not come down and see what we have available? We also have a digital photo album with past creations to show you…
