Oak pullout coffee table

The clients wanted a coffee table they could eat dinner from while watching TV. They were very specific about height and size and about the placing of the shelf. The tabletop extends (useful for extra large meals) in a style called dutch pullout. Oak was chosen to match existing furniture and flooring.

It is an unconventional size for a coffee table, but it works for them.

Materials: Oak.

Dimensions: 460mm (h) x 720mm (w) x 460mm (d). Extends to 1290mm.
