Dulwich Extension Table
Matthew Hilton doesn’t believe in design movements and instead prefers to think of the whole design process as part of the evolution of any object through history. The Dulwich Extension Table (2016) is a fine example of how his products are imbued with feeling and functionality. While the name is pronounced "dull-itch" (like Greenwich), this table is certain to be a place for many lively and engaging conversations. Dulwich boasts exquisite proportions, with legs that draw away from the corners to maximize legroom, as well as fine details that speak to its quality, like mitered joints and visible through-tenons on the legs. The tabletop expands with a simple, smooth pull, allowing insertion of up to two leaves for three possible table widths. After guests depart, store the leaves in the felt-lined compartment under the top – no more "find the leaf" drama before gatherings. Depending on your chairs, Dulwich can seat up to 10 people. Walnut table made in Thailand, oak in Lithuania.
