Axel Dining Table in Solid American Oak
The Axel solid American oak dining table is a bold, strong, sharp piece for discerning curators. This durable Mid-Century Modern inspired dining table is designed to last for decades with the right care.
Make a statement with the unique X leg design and beveled table top that combine functionality and style. The Axel dining table blends statement angles with a smooth, velvety texture to create the perfect centerpiece. Absolutely no Veneered MDF has been used on this product so this piece is far stronger, heavier and of a much higher quality. Solid American Oak is relatively easy to repair should it get chipped or damaged, unlike a veneered surface. Real wood is more robust for wearing surfaces such as a table top, and the joints will withstand greater impacts or misuse.
The concept for the Axel rectangular dining table was family - gathering around a beautiful piece of furniture to create memories, share stories and simply be together.
As a father and son founding team, David and Adam Light understood the need to have a solid and yet unique looking dining table at which everyone eat, drink and be merry. The initial idea for the Axel dining table combines this need with their proud tradition of valuing the authenticity of materials to craft quality furniture, designed for living.
Sourcing of Materials
We work hard to ensure that we’re always producing sustainable furniture. For example, the solid American oak which makes up the Axel dining table is sourced from American forests which embrace sustainable principles - meaning the wood is sustainably harvested, works to restore the ecosystem, implements a replanting process, undertakes consistent environmental monitoring, and respects the land rights of indigenous peoples.
We also use oak because it's hardy and it lasts - it has a natural strength which makes it ideal for the interior home environment. Unlike veneered furniture, there's less damage from wear and tear so you don't have to throw it out to replace it with something equally replaceable.
Our solid wood furniture is a provider of carbon storage and therefore has a positive effect on the planet by containing carbon, and its regrowth in sustainable managed forests adds to the carbon emission reduction.
By crafting our solid American oak furniture, such as the Axel dining table, from wood we are doing the best we can on the planet - making pieces that last through the generations and rejecting the tread of flat-pack, cheap, disposable, replaceable veneer furniture.
What to Furnish With
The Axel dining table works perfectly within a Scandinavian or Mid-Century Modern decor and with any of our Magnus dining chairs and sideboard. The sideboard provides additional storage while the dining chairs in natural wood, fabric or leather seats provide an opportunity to bring a pop of color into your dining space as well as additional comfort for those dinners and conversations that linger into the early hours.
The Magnus Sideboard offers additional storage, a room divider opportunity, a place to display treasured accessories, as well as versatility with clever reversible doors; there's an option of white and gray on one side or matching solid American oak on the other side.
