Dining tables serve a pretty fundamental function—–a place to consume our peas and carrots. But what if the meat and potatoes of your table occur beneath the flat surface? The latest from Hansen Family offers functional intrigue in the form of a pair of colorful compartments hidden under two solid oak panels—–which themselves are backed with slate—–allowing you a spot to stash your salt and pepper and rest your hot pots on.
