There's something completely magical about sitting around a Dining Room table. The conversation, the delicious food, the wine, family and friends. Memories are being made! Legacies are being created! Dreams are being shared! At our house we delight in the experience. We hope you enjoy this little tour of some of our FAVORITE Dining Room Tables. All are made in the USA by one of our most talented vendors.

Refined Rustic  Dinner can be enjoyed around this gorgeous table for years to come. The table top is made of solid wood, and the natural edges are rustic but soft to the touch. The grain of the wood is clearly visible, and gives life to the entire piece. Each line within the wood holds a story to the tree this came from. It is the epitome of strong, with its solid wood table top and stainless steel metal base; this will be a table you pass down to your grandchildren. 

Live Edge Modern with an Organic Feel  The simplicity of this base gives this live edge dining table its contemporary feel.  Steel is inlaid into a solid slab base. The combination of a natural edge wood slab with linear metal is both modern yet organic.  This design  is made in the USA by the woodworkers of one of our favorite furniture lines.  Tell us the size, and they will craft you a unique natural edge dining table.  We can remove the live edge and give the slab a crisp straight edge for an even more contemporary dining table.  The table shown in the photo is black walnut, but we can also craft this design in cherry or maple.  Both cherry and maple can be stained a myriad of colors.  The  inlaid steel is available silver or black.

Organic Slab with Hand Forged Metal X Base  This beautiful organic slab table features a hand forged metal X base.  The live edge slab is asymmetrical so each is unique with its own inherent character.  Many unique species of wood slabs in a variety of sizes are offered.

Organic slab tables look great in just about any style of home.  We are seeing our clients use them in modern to rustic home decors. 

Reclaimed Woods and Clean Modern Lines  Don't you just adore this Modern Farm Dining Table which unites reclaimed woods and clean modern lines for a stunning contemporary rustic effect.  Talk about a transitional design – the modern farm dining table will add refinement to a cabin, lodge or ranch or conversely add rustic charm to a modern Scottsdale condo.  You could use just about any kind of chair around this table from rustic wood chairs to ultra modern dining chairs.  We're all about mixing and matching rustic and modern decor. This table is well built using time honored wood working techniques.

Combining Old, New, Rustic, Modern & Contemporary  This gorgeous Urban Chic Dining Table is a combination of old and new, rustic and modern, contemporary and vintage.  Reclaimed wood is used on the base and inlaid into the table top.  A distressed washed gray top compliments the wood’s natural brown tones.  The antique woods have varying levels of brown hues creating and  interesting design.

The table design itself is linear and thus modern, but with the reclaimed wood and washed gray finish, it is certainly rustic or vintage.  This dining table design may be classified as a “Modern Farm Table”.  One thing that is undeniable is that it is surely a transitional dining table design and will fit nicely into a mountain home in Flagstaff overlooking the mountains or a Central Phoenix condo overlooking the downtown skyline.  You could use contemporary dining chairs around it to give it some bling or distressed leather chairs giving it even more rustic charm.

Couldn't Resist Adding this Incredible Console Table   We LOVE this modern driftwood console table which is a combination of rustic and modern.  The linear metal frame is hand forged from thick metal.  Twisty branches are handcrafted into an artistic centerpiece.  The metal is painted black to compliment the gray wash finish on the reclaimed wooden logs.  Modern rustic may be an oxymoron, but none the less, this design embodies the spirit and character of both.

This modern driftwood console table is a true transitional furniture design. It is such a fantastic conversation piece.

Debi Meyer - Fernando,
You and your wife have so much talent. Most importantly you are absolute gems to work with. Sharing the love and giving my clients your name is a pleasure. They all adore you both!
Fernando Pinal - Hello Debi,
Your blog looks awsome! Congratulations! I also wanted to thank you for those referrals you sent my way, although I wanted to retire for health concerns (my knees) I am still working in the cabinet refinishing business and gradually starting a new venture that allows me to work from home where I can follow my exercise therapy, my knees are recovering but the transition is going to take a bit longer of what I thought, but no complains, still going strong.
Thank you again
With my best regards
