In this Suffolk kitchen, the rectangular Moreton table emphasises the streamlined look of the windows and cabinetry, meaning the whole kitchen has the same sharp, strong lines. If you’d contrasted it with a round table, the contemporary, fluid aesthetic would have diluted.
Our round Arundel table in the adjacent image does just that. Although the kitchen is bold, with Ink painted Suffolk cabinetry and concrete flooring, by choosing a circular table in natural oak, the softness is dialed up.
You can use your table to pick up on shapes in your room that you want to draw attention to. Our Hebden dining table for example, picks up on the other rectangular elements in the room, from the art work and cornicing, through to the beautiful wooden shutters in the adjoining room.
If you'd prefer not to focus on one particular look, consider a contrasting dining table to have a few points of difference. If you’d prefer to have continuation in your room, choose a coordinating shape.
