Dining Tables That Grow


Let’s face it, not all of us have the space in our apartment for that dream dinner party. The classic dining table can take up half a room–and it’s something certain square footage can simply not afford. That’s where the extendable table comes into play. In 2022, the options for a dining table that literally grows are endless. They can be tailored to your living room, your style, and the number of people on that imaginary guest list. When unfolded, what appears to be a simple desk can turn a table for two into a table for five. When you’re done– simply tuck it back into place and regain your space.

Here are some options for every budget that’ll make choosing a new table fun and realistic.

Extendable Dining Options (For Fans of Practicality and a Classic Aesthetic)

Each table is uniquely chosen and crafted for you and your space. The tables are assembled in Italy, by craftsmen who know just how to capture that refined and rustic look. The table, in its original form, seats up to four. When extended, it doubles that number–seating eight guests comfortably. They call this extension the table’s ‘leaves’; and they easily slide into place with wooden arm supports. Each table is made with tulipwood and their most popular shade, ‘nero noce’, is a brown stain finish that perfectly compliments a warmer toned room. Another popular shade, named ‘Dama’, has a cream colored finish that is sealed with beeswax. To care for your Pratico table, remove any dust with a soft dry cloth and avoid potentially harmful cleaners.
