This table is so nice and delivers so much flexibility. It is very popular because it can close up to a nice 6 seater setting or open right out to a 14 seater. There are two extensions so the table can be used at 2, 2.5 or 3 meters. The Hawkesbury chair has contours in the back and is perfectly designed to curve into the lower back area. It has thick slats and stainless steel fittings.
