Solid Oak Round Dining Table

The durability of solid oak makes the Magnus round dining table one of our best selling ranges - designed for living and built to last for decades to come. Magnus’s effortless and gentle strength is inspired by the Scandinavian and Mid-century modern furniture movements.

Our Magnus dining tables are also available in a rectangular and extension design to accommodate more friends and family at your table. 

Initial Concept

The concept for the Magnus round 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 dining table at which everyone eat, drink and be merry. The initial idea for the Magnus round 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 bulk of the Magnus round 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 Magnus round 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 Magnus round dining table works perfectly within a Scandi 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. 

Solid Oak Extension Dining Table


The Magnus solid oak dining chair’s curved seat is built for ergonomic comfort, blending the relationship between soft curves and the clean lines with a refined elegance contributed by the angled legs. Enjoy relaxing for a few minutes longer than planned over morning coffee, or forget how quickly time passes over a meal with friends as the Magnus’s gentle, smooth design transports you to a tranquil space. Designed for effortless living, the soft, warm tones inspired by the timeless Scandinavian and Mid-century modern furniture movements will complement your home for decades to come.  Available in a natural solid oak wood seat, fabric seat or leather upholstered seat. 

Magnus Fabric Dining Chair

The Magnus fabric dining chair is available with 100% polyester fabric for durability and easy cleaning. We recommend vacuuming the fabric seat monthly and applying a fabric protective spray every three months. Fabric seats are available in:

  • Midnight Blue - dark, rich blue color in a tight weave
  • Cement Gray - light gray with warm undertones in a tight weave

Magnus Leather Dining Chair

The Magnus leather upholstered dining chair adds a sophisticated element to your dining room or space. Should liquid be spilled on the leather, wipe off quickly. We recommend the use of a leather moisturizer each month. Leather seats are available in: 

  • Black - top grain leather with smooth pebbled texture
  • Cream - warm white top grain leather. Avoid contact with unwashed overdyed new denim

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. It channels movements from Scandinavian furniture and mid-century modern furniture that inspire calm, elegant spaces. The mid-century modern sideboard is made of high-quality American oak for durability and functionality. Easily keep everything in its place, with two sliding-door cabinets and three classic drawers.
