The Excellent Exeter Extension Dining Table by Copeland Furniture
Copeland Furniture's Exeter Dining Table has enough aesthetic panache to recommend it on that basis alone.
A shining example of the company's eclecticism ("influence from the Arts & Crafts, Mission, Shaker, and Scandinavian movements, resulting in a style best characterized as transitional"), Exeter is also a paragon of functionality and sustainable design.
Beginning as seating for six, Exeter easily expands into a dozen commodious dinner time spots, courtesy of a pair of self-storing leaf extensions (expanding a total of 40") and ball-bearing glides that allow a single person to achieve the expansion in about 15 seconds flat.
In addition to the inherent eco-wise feature of expansion, Exeter is finished with a GREENGUARD-certified low-chemical-emission topcoat. Additionally, all Copeland products pay homage to the Vermont spirit of forest preservation and stewardship-all wood is sustainably harvested within 500 miles of the factory.
Finish options for Exeter include manifold shades of cherry: natural, autumn, cognac, saddle, and smoke. It’s also available in a glass-top option.
