If you’re on the hunt for a dining table or dining set that is unique, a little different from mainstream retail, then a custom or bespoke designer set may be right for you. Luxury dining room furniture or designer dining tables tends to be a little more expensive than high street branded furniture due to the hands on manufacturing process, but you will find yourself with something that stands out and makes a statement in your dining area.

Unique, handmade & prestigious

Many of the luxury dining table and chairs I’ve reviewed below are lovingly handmade by tradesmen at the top of their game, carefully prepared over weeks (sometimes months) to bring you high quality perfection. Mainly made from quality hard woods such as oak, walnut and sometimes ash these designer tables are not mass produced in factories, but instead, the timber is carefully selected and hand crafted in small workshops by individuals who’s life and passion is in making furniture.

Whether you’re looking for luxury oval dining tables, extendable tables or something out of the ordinary then the following selection should provide enough to capture your imagination. I’ve also included a section for the most amazing luxury chairs and matching benches. I hope you enjoy viewing and reading about these amazing modern dining tables and sets as much as I enjoyed finding them.
