The award-winning Cross Extending Table is a fine example of Matthew Hilton's innovative approach to wood furniture design and signature minimal aesthetic.
Both practical and versatile, simple lines build to create a distinctive contemporary shaped base. This allows the table to offer ample leg room. The table top expands with a smooth and simple pull to allow for the addition of two extra leaves. The extension leaves can be stored in the concealed compartment under the table top when not in use.
Constructed from a solid wood base and a solid edge veneered top, the Cross Extending Table seats from 6 to 14 people. Felt-lined under-frame leaf storage ensures safe storage of the extension leaves. A mechanical ball-bearing extension system provides a smooth extension action. Finally, the table is finished with a clear polyurethane lacquer to provide a finish that will last.

To prolong the life of the product and retain its appearance and functionality, we would like to give you some relevant information and care advice:
This unit is manufactured oak or walnut depending on the finish. The legs and underframe are solid - the top and extension leaves are veneered for greater stability.
Skilled craftsmen manufacture this product and there is variety between each unit. This is because wood is a natural product, with natural colour and grain variations.
Natural timber is affected by sunlight; this can cause the wood colour to darken. For this reason (especially if placed in direct sunlight) it is recommended that placing objects in the same position for long periods of time is avoided. This potential colour adjustment becomes less relevant as the product ages.
It is recommended that no abrasive cleaners or solvents are used to clean the unit. Please only use proprietary furniture polishes or alternatively, warm water with a diluted mild detergent.
