Round or rectangular? It’s one of the age-old questions people ask when they’re shopping for a dining table. There’s no right or wrong answer, but bear this in mind: in 1921, Swedish psychologist Helge Lundholm asked people to draw lines representing emotional adjectives. While angular lines were used to depict words such as hard, harsh and cruel, curved lines were popular for gentle, quiet and mild.

These findings have been replicated numerous times over the last century. In general, round tables are often recommended for smaller gatherings. That’s because everyone can see each other, making conversations easier and encouraging a sense of intimacy. Round tables often work better in small spaces, too, because the shape is less intrusive and does not dominate. Having said all that, many of us have been to banquets and found ourselves at large round tables seating 12 or more.

And it’s easier to squeeze in extra diners if your table is round. So there is versatility in the shape, and the same can be said of our range. Our smallest round table seats four, the largest up to 10. Beyond the purely practical, our carefully selected oak also brings beauty and craftsmanship into your space, with wedged tenons holding the legs securely in place and embedded dovetail rails on the underside of the table top ensuring the wood can expand and contract without cracking or cupping. Enter Houtlander’s circle of (long) life!

Our Oak:

We only use sustainably harvested American oak to craft our furniture. Timber is an inherently sustainable material - trees are (ideally) an infinitely renewable resource. But many manufacturers rely on monocropped pine, or other woods, due to cost and ease. This practice destroys soil and the surrounding ecosystem. All our oak is grown and harvested in indigenous forests on the east coast of America. Trees are felled only once they’ve reached full maturity. Then they are drawn from the forest in minimally invasive ways that preserve the surrounding vegetation. It’s all about delivering a truly sustainable and stunning product.

Manufacturing Process:

Paragraph: Carpentry and joinery are two of the oldest crafts on earth, and furniture making ordinarily requires a huge amount of skill in order to deliver truly exceptional results. Unfortunately, these traditions are largely dying off, particularly in the global South, making great wooden furniture hard to come by at reasonable prices. At Houtlander we want as many people as possible to have access to beautiful, well-crafted furniture which lasts a lifetime. This is why we’ve combined expert craftsmanship with 5-axis CNC technology, allowing us to create perfect curves, joints and furniture features in an affordable and replicable way.
