Light Extending Table is an iconic Matthew Hilton design, reflecting his interest in the concept of ‘impossible lightness,’ where he tries to create the feeling of greater spaciousness in a room by reducing the visual weight of his furniture. Surprisingly slender, this table features a chamfered edge and a cantilevered leg with complex joinery.
This innovative dining table extends with ease and elegance, offering three possible lengths. When fully extended, this table can seat 10 to 12 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.
Also available as a fixed table, rectangular or oval.

Available in black walnut, white oak, or ash in a range of finishes. Solid wood with engineered solid wood tabletop. See menus below for further material information.
NOTE: When not in use, place the leaves within the fabric lined compartment as follows. One leaf should be placed face down into the fabric lined compartment. The other leaf should be placed face up on top of the first leaf, so the felt pads on the bottom of the two leaves meet. NOTE 2: It is important to NEVER carry, lift or move the table by the upper leaves as this may damage the table. Always hold the table by the base when moving.

Timber is sustainable solid wood from North America or Europe, offering long-term repairability of the surface. Natural colour and grain variations in every plank make each piece an individual. Traditional wood joinery bonded with wood glue ensures structural integrity. All finishes are non-toxic and applied by hand, sprayed or rubbed.
