Solid wood with a stylish butcher block effect – the Hammersmith dining table

The fantastic-quality and beautifully-crafted Hammersmith dining table offers a bold new take on the traditional wood dining table.

Sturdily made of solid wood and with a solid oak top, this table brims with stylish contemporary details. The top has a striking butcher block effect and the tops of the squared legs neatly follow the smooth curves of the table edges.

Finished with a light-coloured protective lacquer, it’s the perfect table for a stylish family dining space. And it’s only available at Furniture Village.

In a multifunctional kitchen diner, team Hammersmith’s beautiful light oak finish with primary colours, painted metallic surfaces and cheerful geometric patterns. Add the matching Hammersmith sideboard for useful storage.

Contemporary oak with a beautiful finish

“There’s nothing quite like the look and feel of real wood, especially when it’s as stylish as the Hammersmith dining table. This table breaks with tradition – just look at that butcher block-style top – but still has all the warmth and character of a classic wood dining table.”


Concrete-effect finish offers a new twist on industrial style – the Moon extendable dining table

We love industrial style – all that fantastic rustic wood and weathered metal – but if you’re looking for a new interpretation of cool urban style, gather round the Moon dining table. This table has a stunning concrete-effect top in fashionable grey that’s so on trend. And it’s also a fantastic choice for family dining as the finish is extremely hardwearing. The versatile Moon table comes in two sizes and both can be extended by adding optional extension leaves. The collection also includes space-saving dining benches, chairs, sideboards and more. Practical and stylish – what more could you want?

Geometric accessories in monochromatic hues help keep the industrial look clean and modern. Balance the cool grey table surface with a colourful contemporary rug and warm wood accent furniture.

Cool urban style

“Concrete is one of the big trends this autumn. Still fashionably urban, it's definitely the sleeker side of industrial style. The Moon table is a fantastic example. The colour is right on trend and it’s so durable too.”

Compact dining with a cool ceramic finish – the Como dining table

If yours is a smaller dining room, then you’re in luck. From its fantastic ceramic top to those ever-so-stylish brass-effect metal capped feet, the Como dining table is perfectly proportioned for compact living. The boat-shaped table top and angled legs also give it a certain retro charm. And once you've finished admiring those beautiful curves and elegant lines, take a closer look at its midnight-grey ceramic finish. It’s utterly stunning. Exclusively available at Furniture Village, the Como dining table delivers contemporary designer style for a great-value price.

Keeping to a generally monochromatic look lets the Como table’s gorgeous ceramic surface take centre stage. Be sure to choose unique and stylish pieces that have an equally striking designer edge.

Cool and compact ceramic design

“You can’t top a ceramic dining table for that perfect balance of cool style and functional durability. This makes the Como a table that you can really enjoy using every day without worrying about damaging that fantastic finish. And you’ll only find it at Furniture Village.”


On trend two-tone charm – the Cayenne extending dining table

This fantastic dining table ticks all the boxes, especially if your dining room is more compact. Neatly proportioned, it pairs a dark grey painted base with a beautifully smooth light oak top. Lines are clean and contemporary, and the well-crafted construction – solid beech with American white oak veneers – promises long-lasting durability. It’s versatile too, extending to seat six so you can entertain in style whenever you like. The Cayenne range also includes dining chairs, dining sets, a sideboard and a choice of living room occasional furniture. Enjoy this fashionable look in every living space for a great-value price.
