An Expanding Table Allows More Seating Without Clutter

Matthew Bridges Design created the 'Seer Table,' an expanding table that has a simple design, but was no easy task to create. The design process of making this wooden table went through ten drafts before the designer encountered one that was satisfactory.

The result is a multipurpose table that expands from a four-seat accommodation to eight, only using a single hand. Now you can say goodbye to leaf-insert tables and say hello to corner lifts. The original structure is a square with a base that crosses like an "X" underneath. When you lift each corner, the table becomes a larger square and the legs no longer reach the perimeter, which allows more legroom.

This table is featured in a dark wood with a triangular grain design.
