The Fletta Table Uses One Clever Feature to Serve a Pair of Purposes

The designer of the Fletta Table strove to create a piece that would thoughtfully embody how modern people interact with a kitchen table. Perhaps ironically, her inspiration came from the versatility of medieval banquets, and the way that they were intended to be shifted to accommodate different activities and occasions.

The contemporary family would feel quite comfortable when seated at this lovely maple wood piece as a ten-person dining table. Two cork-covered panels can be placed in the middle of the eating surface to extend the size of the thing and provide an expansive built-in trivet.

Alternatively, Guorun Theodora Alfreosdottir's Fletta Table is perfect for use as a desk. The trivet can be pulled up and lodged along the center to make a little cork board divider, either to block out another productive person or to conceal clutter on one half.
