Sissinghurst Dining Table and Chairs
We all fork out for expensive dining sets only for them to be ruined by scorch marks, scratches, stains and the general wear and tear of everyday life. Replacing dining sets can take its toll on the purse strings but here at Frances Hunt we are pleased to bring you a brand new collection of both traditional and modern looking dining, extending, gateleg and drop leaf tables that are specifically built to last. Click here to find your perfect dining table and chairs.

With a wide variety of styles and finishes to choose from, we are certain we have something to suit every style and every home; from the traditional looking Amherst, Sutton and Lullingston tables to the more contemporary looking Cromwell, Upnor and Holmwood tables.

Every table in this collection features an innovative Tufftop surface making them highly practical and allowing them to successfully withstand any damage caused by general day-to-day life. The specially treated surfaces lend this collection of dining tables a number of impressive properties, which are sure to make life that little bit easier.

With the ability to rest hot plates, dishes and teapots straight onto the surface, the heat resistant tops mean scorch marks will be prevented and place mats are no longer necessary. As well as being heat resistant, these surfaces are scratch, stain and fade resistant making these tables not only perfect for dining but also ideal for working on whilst staying in top condition.

Easy Care

Saving you both time and money, these surfaces can be effortlessly wiped clean with a damp cloth removing any marks and spillages. With no need to wax, polish or oil, these tables are truly easy to maintain and, unlike some solid wood products, won’t warp, swell or split.

  1. Expandable dining tables are gaining more popularity these days. The major advantage of using the expandable dining tables is the fact that the dining table could be expanded to a certain length when required. This is particularly useful when there are large number of guest in your home. The expandable dining tables can be increased in size by adding two leaves and also it could be brought back to the original shape and size easily.^,
