Listening to your own voice is awful, especially if you’re in full voice over mode. Anyway, enough about me! How about that table? The solid oak ‘Double’ dining table from Ethnicraft is one of the most striking contemporary statement pieces in our solid oak collection.

Dining tables make up a large percentage of what 4 Living sell, but it’s not that often that we can get a new one into our showroom to film it.
