A dining table made of hardwood that can be expanded.
These extensible dining room sets have clean lines and a streamlined contour, giving it a classic rather than contemporary appearance. It’s also extremely durable, thanks to the ash wood structure. The light natural ash color is modern but still warm and inviting, and a darker walnut stain is also available for this rectangular table. A leaf kept on the underside of the table adds a foot and a half of length, bringing the table from a six-person 71″ table to an eight-person 89″ table.

Under $200 for a little wood dining table
Zinus is well known for its robust bed frames and inexpensive memory foam mattresses (particularly on Amazon), but the business also offers other furniture. This little real-wood table looks similar to the Smiley (above), but it has a considerably smaller footprint—and a lot lower price tag. It might also be used as a desk due to its small size. The Zinus Jen has been described as “the best dining table I’ve ever bought,” “the best assembling experience I’ve ever had,” and “one of the best Amazon purchases I’ve ever made.”

A statement table made of solid wood
West Elm’s statement table has clean lines and a minimalist design with a few modest curves to keep it from looking too contemporary.

Although it is not extensible, it is available in three sizes (72″, 86″, and 100″), making it suitable for medium and large dining rooms.

It comfortably sits six to eight people at 73″ length, and the legs include levelers on the bottom to prevent swaying. Pottery Barn also offers white-glove delivery, which means your table will be carried inside and built without you having to lift a finger (the delivery team will also take all of the packaging materials with them!).

A classic oak dining table with Art Deco flourishes.
CB2’s enchanting dining table has a lot going for it. The oak is cerused (a finishing technique that brings out the natural wood grain), the fluted apron adds Art Deco flair, and the clean lines make it feel contemporary and ageless. The overall aesthetic is adaptable enough to fit in a formal dining room or a sparsely furnished loft, and at 90″ long, it can accommodate either.
