It’s usually the case that the dining table, due to its considerable size, is a dominant feature of the room. To capitalise on this, select one with a strong visual impact. ‘The decorative scrolled legs of this table not only provide a substantial support structure for the top, but add a touch of elegance and an air of formality,’ says Sue Jones, co-founder of Oka. This handmade table, named after the famous Old Tjikko Norwegian spruce tree that’s almost 10,000 years old, is made from recycled white pine finished with clear matt varnish.
