Product Story

Fascinated by the relationship between modern forms and classic craft, Matthew Hilton has found a perfect partner in furniture specialists De La Espada. Applying his sculptural style to the beautiful textures of crafted American walnut or oak, Hilton has created the innovatively formed Light extending table - a functional piece that merges opulent material with angular lines.
  • Painstakingly designed, redesigned and redeveloped over the course of 3 years in a collaboration between Matthew Hilton & De La Espada with the goal to develop the ultimate solid wood extending dining table.
  • Legs constructed from 6 components, joined with lapped timber joints, glued long grain to long grain to maintain maximum strength. Hidden dowels help locate the joints during assembly.
  • The table includes 2 drop leaves, for three possible lengths, and a maximum length of 290cm, seating 12-14 people.

Care & Buying Guide

  • Finished using Danish Oil followed by wax:this seals the pores of the timber, enhancing the natural structure of the wood and forming a water repellent protection against everyday wear and tear.
  • Daily maintenance: Wipe with a damp cloth When done correctly, this procedure should deal with any small hairline scratches, daily wear and tear and dust build up. 

  • Waxing: Depending on humidity and temperature within your home, your desk should be waxed every six months to a year. - A De La Espada care guide is supplied with this product.

  • Avoid intense heat, corrosives or spillages. Any spillages should be wiped clean immediately. 
  • Do not use spirits, bleaches or any other chemical cleaners to clean the timber.
