The Jordan:


A sophisticated combination of African wenge wood veneer, frosted glass and silver metallic accents, this breathtaking dining table instills an elegant ambience into your dining room design. The unique pedestal base presents alternating rectangular layers of wenge and silver, and it is topped by a 79” x 40” wenge rectangle inset with frosted glass in the center. Coordinating side chairs feature comfortable beige or brown leatherette cushions and a decorative cut-out back that follows the rectangle theme. The Jordan collection from Global Furniture USA includes a vinyl bar bench and a bar stool with the rectangular back cut-out, as well as a matching buffet and cabinet.

This creative design brings a whole new dimension to the dining experience with a unique twist on the time-honored extension table. The simple-looking slab design masks an unexpected surprise: it can be slid apart lengthwise to reveal its centered, multi-functional extension leaf. (Adjustment can be performed either manually or by using the optional variable-displacement motor.) This center piece can be used as a food serving area, a cutlery box or a cutting board, and functionality is further enhanced with two stainless steel serving trolleys that can be rolled into the middle from each open end. The Dining Desk from Draenert is made of your choice of natural stone or MDF-veneer.
