47 Plaza is a 1928 pre-war apartment in the Rosario Candela-designed 47 Plaza Building on Prospect Park in Brooklyn. The apartment was refurbished by Workstead, who maintained original features including the floors, trim and mouldings to keep the context of the prewar vocabulary. Thoughtful updates to the space bring a modern sensibility, and the choice of colours and materials, including a French Grey paint and solid wood accents, fuse the new with the old. The dining area includes Light Extending Table by Matthew Hilton.

This innovative dining table extends with ease and elegance, offering three possible lengths. When fully extended, this table can seat 12 to 14 people. The tabletop is made from engineered solid wood, a clever use of premium timber providing greater stability in this demanding application. Set upon sculptural legs, the tabletop opens effortlessly and holds the two leaves within a fabric lined compartment when not in use. Designed by Matthew Hilton for his eponymous brand, and manufactured by De La Espada craftsmen.
