Splits and stacks made from mixed materials, different colours of the same or grooves routed into the top are appearing in exciting new ranges from Europe's top product designers. Tables are now divided and layered and as a result are infinitely more interesting than ever before.
Routed Table Tops
One of the ways to achieve a pattern on a table top is to route out grooves into a table top using a machine and then sealing the top with a clear lacquer. This can be done on both wooden and marble table tops. For contract use we would recommend using routed tables as an accent side table rather than a dining table as food may become stuck in the grooves. If you want to specify a table with lines on for use as a contract dining table we'd recommend getting the design digitally printed instead. (You can view our Digitally Printed Table Tops here.)
