With spare clean lines and no decorative excess, Matthew Hilton’s Cross Extension Table (2005) pairs the elegance and warmth of classic English furniture with the simple beauty of 21st-century modernism. This table has a straightforward aesthetic that will suit almost any environment. While the Cross Extension’s strong, unadorned geometry creates a distinctly up-to-date piece, Hilton softens the outline with tapered legs that flare from the base like the supports of traditional pedestal tables. Adaptable to changing dining needs, the tabletop expands with a simple pull, allowing insertion of up to two leaves for three possible table sizes: 78.75", 97.5" and 116". After guests depart, the leaves store in a felt-lined compartment on the table’s underside. The Cross Extension Table received the 2006 Elle Decoration Best in Furniture Award. Walnut table made in Malaysia; others made in Lithuania.
