novel oval. We were instantly drawn to the sweeping, unexpected shape of this table from Italian design team IVdesign.it. Scaled to dine ten, fluid swoop of engineered wood with oak veneer carves a dramatic oval edged with subtle bevel. Nodding to nature, the designers angled solid oak legs that intersect "like the branch of a tree reaching for the sky, divided to support the foliage." Light warmth of the wood and open grain play natural opposite to exposed hardware.

We needed a table that would double as a meeting/boardroom and dining table. This fit the bill to a T. We've gotten tons of compliments on it, and from people who are very demanding with their stuff. It's true that seating ten might be a challenge as you would need chairs smaller than average, and you do have the legs to contend with. However -- the only table that will not present this problem is a true pedestal, and for that you'll have to spend $$$$ on the oval Saarinen. Regardless we very rarely have ten people over for dinner! If you do, maybe this isn't the best choice. All in all very pleased. Looks great with Victorian or other similarly ornate chairs.

We love the table. We were looking for a big, simple contemporary table, a little less heavy than the tables we saw everywhere...the price is right too. A little tricky to find the right chairs to go with it though. Easy to assemble.
