A classic dining table
Do you want a dining table made in a timeless design with high quality materials? Then the HOLMEN dining tables are right for you. The dining table is handmade of solid oak with visible, beautiful markings of the wood. They are handmade with solid oak from FSC® certified forests (FSC® N002763) in Denmark. The design is simple and timeless, which makes it possible for you to match any chairs with the HOLMEN design. Perfect for the Nordic home, where quality and design play a crucial role.
The elegant HOLMEN dining table fits into most homes. The series of HOLMEN dining tables come in several sizes. If you want a different size than the ones shown, you are more than welcome to contact us. The HOLMEN can also be customized to fit your needs.
When you need to find your new dining table, you need to consider 4 important things:
- The size of the table frame. How much space do you need between the table legs?
- The size of the table top. How much space do you need around the table – and what do you have space for at home?
- Treatment. Should the table be oiled with clear or white oil.
- Additional plates. How many additional plates do you need when the whole family is to gather?
You can choose from 4 different sizes of frames; small round table, large round table, small rectangular table and large rectangular table. Whether you should choose a small rectangular table or a large rectangular table depends on what size you want the frame under the table to be. At the small frame there is room for 2 chairs on the long side, while at the large frame there is room for 3.
Once you have chosen which of the 4 sizes of frame you want, you can choose from a sea of sizes for the table top. It is therefore possible to find a table that suits your home and your needs. Then you choose between a clear or a white oil. You can always change this choice at a later date, whether you change your mind in 2 months, 2 years or 10 years. You can always sand the table down and give it a new treatment with just the color you want.
Finally, decide how many additional plates you need. In everyday life you will usually not need some, but for Christmas, birthdays or other festive occasions when the whole family gathers, the matter will be different. We always recommend buying 2 additional plates, as our experience is that the customers who choose this solution are happiest with their choice. Most people who choose 0 or 1 additional plate will return at a later date because they have regretted it.
If you want a different size than the ones you can see on the website, do not hesitate to contact us. Everything is possible (almost), and we are more than happy to help you find the perfect table for your home.
Treatment and extension leafs
Our HOLMEN dining tables are available in oak with either white or natural oil. We also make special orders, so if you have other wishes for the surface treatment, please contact us.
In addition, you have the option of adding extension leafs when you choose a HOLMEN dining table. The extension leafs make the dining table 45-50 cm longer for each plate, to make room for extra guests on those special days.
When you choose a HOLMEN dining table over others, you choose a piece of furniture made of sustainable materials. The oak that our HOLMEN dining tables are from FSC® certified forests (FSC® N002763). This means that no more wood is felled than the forests can reproduce, and that animals and plant life are protected, and those who work in the forests are trained and receive proper safety equipment and pay.
Care and maintance
The dining tables in solid oak are oil-treated. They come in a light oil or a clear oil that suits most homes. We recommend that you oil your new dining table when you receive it and again after approximately one month. The frequency of oil treatment depends on the use of the table. If it is used a lot, it should be treated more often. If a very smooth and water-repellent surface is desired, the dining table must be treated with oil several times during the first month. If a more natural surface is desired, the table should not be treated more than a few times a year.
