The European Walnut Live Edge Dining Table is a true work of art. Crafted from the finest quality timber, it boasts rich, chocolatey tones and intricate ripples and striations that give it a unique and distinctive character. Each table is one of a kind, with its own story to tell. The two-toned tabletop showcases the contrasting heart and sapwood, and is finished with a discreet central opening. It’s a piece that will make a bold statement in any dining room.
It’s not just the wood that sets the European Walnut Live Dining Table apart. The handmade kinked steel legs in a sophisticated matt black finish give the design a contemporary edge. The live edge detail along both sides of the table is a subtle nod to traditional craftsmanship. The overall aesthetic is minimalist, with a focus on precision and attention to detail.
Here at L’Atelier Mata we take pride in handcrafting each table, using only the highest quality materials and techniques. And because we understand that every home is unique, we offer the option to customise your table to your exact specifications. This is not just a dining table, it’s a bespoke piece of furniture that will elevate your home to the next level.
100% Hardwood: Embrace the natural beauty and sustainability of solid wood with our exquisite furniture pieces. Not only does timber exude beauty, it’s also a living material that adds warmth and character to your home.
Artisanship: Each piece of furniture is built by hand at our atelier in France, using traditional techniques that ensure strength and longevity.
Repairability: We take pride in our commitment to sustainability and longevity. Our furniture is designed with repairability in mind, ensuring that it can be easily restored if needed. This means that you can enjoy your table for years to come, with the knowledge that it can be restored to its original beauty if necessary.
NO Composite Materials: We never use composite materials like MDF or chipboard in our designs, ensuring that our furniture is of the highest quality and durability. Our commitment to sustainability extends to our design process, with a focus on minimising emissions and maximising the reuse of offcuts.
Provenance: Our wood is FSC-certified, meaning that it comes from responsibly and sustainably managed forests that prioritise biodiversity, social responsibility, and economic benefit. When you choose our furniture, you’re not just investing in style and quality – you’re also making a responsible choice for the environment.
Dusting: Use a soft, dry cloth to dust the surface of the table regularly to prevent dirt and dust build-up.
Cleaning: If the surface of the table needs to be cleaned, use a gentle cleaner designed for use on acrylic-coated surfaces. Be sure to avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cloths as these can damage the finish on your dining table.
Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause the colour of the furniture to fade over time. If possible, place the furniture away from windows or use curtains or blinds to block direct sunlight.
Moisture: Moisture can be problematic if left to linger on the tabletop. If any food or liquid gets split directly onto the surface, clean immediately.
Heat: Avoid placing hot objects, such as pots and pans, directly on the surface of the table. Use trivets or placemats to protect the surface from heat damage. When planning the location of your table, consider placing your table 1-2 meters away from a heat source such as a radiator or fireplace.
Handle With Care: Please be warned, these tables are very heavy. If you are planning to move your table, be sure to lift it rather than dragging it across the floor and make sure you have a few extra sets of hands to help. This will help to prevent scratches and other damage to the surface or floors.
Storage: If the table is going to be stored for an extended period of time, cover it with a clean, soft cloth to protect it from dust and scratches.
Shipping: All our furniture comes with free delivery and installation.
Scheduling: Once your European walnut dining table build is complete, we will schedule a delivery time that is convenient for you.
Accessibility: Please ensure that the delivery location is easily accessible and that there is enough room for our delivery team to manoeuvre the table into the desired location. If there are any potential obstacles, such as stairs or tight turns, please let us know in advance so that we can prepare accordingly.
Installation: Our delivery team will be responsible for both delivering and installing your L’Atelier Mata table. They have been trained to handle heavyweight furniture with care and to ensure a safe and professional installation. The team will show you how to attach the base to the table top for future reference.
Inspection: Upon delivery and installation, please inspect the table to ensure that it meets your expectations and that there is no damage. If you notice any issues, please let us know.
Disposal of Packaging: Our delivery team will dispose of all packaging materials and clean up the area after installation is complete.
The Timber: European Walnut Dining Table
European walnut (Juglans regia) also known as English walnut, is a wood of character. This hardwood is coveted by artisans for its natural beauty and versatility. The wood can exhibit a range of tones from deep chocolate browns to warmer golden hues and may even have subtle reddish or purple undertones. The variations in tone add depth and character to each bespoke dining table.
The grain of European walnut is known for its striking patterns, with swirls, curls, and waves that create a unique sense of movement. The wood has a medium to coarse texture, with a natural lustre that catches the light and draws the eye.
At L’Atelier Mata, we love working with this species of timber! There is always a ‘big reveal’ once the raw boards are planed down. The level of character never disappoints and we think that the combination of warm colour and distinctive grain pattern make this timber the perfect choice for our dining tables.
The Table Base
Kinked Legs | Matt Black
The table legs on this European walnut dining table are a standout feature. The legs have a unique kinked design that gives the piece a distinctive and unexpected look. Crafted from reclaimed steel, the legs are sturdy and substantial. We have used a matt black powder coated finish to maximise the contemporary touch, which is a feature we love! The dark & moody legs create a lovely contrast with the warmth of the table top.
