must-have: extendable tables
For a small home or a spacious living room, for contained dining or expansive entertaining: an extendable table is a good and flexible choice.
In recent years, extendable tables have become a must-have in homes, perfect for dinner or a party, but what factors do we use to choose the right table?
Besides the shape - square, rectangular, round or oval - it is important to evaluate the opening mechanism and its durability and ease of use.
Calligaris has always been committed to researching and patenting new, innovative and cutting-edge mechanisms that make it possible to add extra seats with ease and at the drop of a hat.
The Elson table, with a single central supporting base, enhances the elegance and simplicity of the oval top and is ideal for small spaces.
It features a fully automatic opening mechanism: the extension leaf is hidden in the centre of the table under two half tops and rotates into position when opening until it is seamlessly aligned with the top.
The Apian rectangular table with its generous and elegant proportions extends up to 3 meters in length and can accommodate up to twelve diners.
Its mechanism is fully automatic and features a main top that gently slides with a single movement until it joins the extension leaf.
A mechanism that guarantees lightness and speed.
With its soft and essential forms, the Sunshine table differs in its semi-automatic mechanism.
The extensions, present at both ends, easily pull out and align with the main top.
There is a wide selection of materials, colours and table tops to choose from.
The side extensions can be opened independently to add either two or four seats as needed.
