The extendable CH388 Dining Table, designed by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen, demonstrates unrivaled craftsmanship.

CH388 successfully exhibits Wegner's experimentation with stainless steel, evident through the detailing around the top of the base. This steel form strengthens the tabletop's rounded edges and acts to unite the legs for a bold statement, stretching the depth of the table at either side.

Architectural detailing plays a prominent attribute in the frame design, supporting the thick tabletop. Along the top of the tabletop a separation line is visible which opens out for each extension leaf to drop into its centre (if required). Two leaves can be inserted extending to a maximum width of 240cm from 120cm.

A wooden support leg is included which is placed in the centre of the extended table. When not in use this is discreetly secured to the underneath of the tabletop, forming part of a compact design within the extension mechanism.

The tabletop can be selected from a range of options which include white laminate or solid oak with a soap or oiled finish.

PLEASE NOTE for laminate tabletops matching extension leaves can only be selected due to the profiles edge and to avoid colour variations. For solid oak tabletops black or grey MDF extension leaves can be chosen (ideal if you're covering with a tablecloth) or leaves in the same wood and finish. If more than one extension leaf is requested, only one of the solid wood extension leaves is produced from the exact same wood as the tabletop.

The non extendable CH388 Dining Table is also available.

Laminate - A matt white veneer.
Oil - Grain and structure are visible; lighter than soap; creates lustre and brings out contrast in grain and structure. Darkens over time to a rich patina.
Soap- The closest to raw wood; grain and structure are visible; light in colour.
