It is unusual to find a round dining table with integrated extensions. The table has an extremely clever in-built mechanism which allows two folded extension tops to be hoisted into position using a special lifting mechanism and vertical adjustment slide. The operation maintains the height of 77 cm and extends the table to 234 cm which then offers comfortable seating for ten people.
