The extendable Carl Hansen CH338 Dining Table, designed by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen, demonstrates his unrivalled craftsmanship.This oval dining table exhibits Wegner's talent with solid wood, evident through the interconnecting solid wood forms supporting the thick tabletop. Smooth linear beams extend underneath along the width and depth of the tabletop, slotting into the legs to create organic joints. Architectural detailing plays a prominent attribute in the frame design. 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 alternative tables are available, both extending to different lengths. One has hardware accommodating a maximum of two extension leaves, extending up to 320cm in length. This includes one supporting leg. The second has hardware accommodating a maximum of four extension leaves, extending up to 440cm in length. This includes four supporting wooden legs. Each wooden support leg included 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 soaped or oiled oak or oiled walnut. Each extension leaf measures 115cm x 60cm and is available in black or grey MDF, or the same wood finishes as the main table.
PLEASE NOTE Black and grey MDF extension leaves can be selected (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 smaller CH337 Dining Table is also available including the larger CH339.
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.
