Put Your Plate On A Pedestal
If you're short on space, a pedestal table can be the perfect solution. With proper base to table top proportion, it is possible to take up a smaller footprint without giving up dining space. With one or two leaves, you can turn your every day round 4 seater into the setting for large family gatherings, with extra legroom to scoot down and subtly unbutton your eating pants! Round to oval pedestals further maximize a small space.
There truly is a pedestal table for every aesthetic and wallet. The more traditional pedestal tables with solid wood bases can be extremely heavy physically as well as visually. Even when a turned pedestal is "hollow" it is made from a significant amount of real hardwood. Made from real wood, these can also be more pricey. Luckily there are so many bases to choose from (ornate metal, simple sleek, mixed materials) so there's a solution for every space, taste and need. Between consumer stores, Trade Only vendors, and custom options--there's a pedestal for all the people!
