The advantage of engaging a bespoke furniture designer and maker in the production of dining room furniture means that proper consideration will be given to all the design and ergonomic parameters, thereby ensuring high standards of comfort and useability. For example when considering the design of bespoke dining tables it is important to consider the correct table size and perimeter length for the number of seating places required. I always pay particular attention to the design and positioning of the under structure to ensure minimum interference with leg space. This is particularly the case with extending bespoke dining tables where seating positions alter relative to the supporting structure depending on the configuration of the table. Table top height is important to consider relative to the proposed chair height, too low there will be restriction of legroom under the table rail, too high will result in an uncomfortable eating position.
I have been commissioned to make many handmade dining tables over the years ranging from more tradition furniture such as solid oak, ten to twelve seat refectory type tables, a solid oak elliptical
