When it comes to restaurant tables design, you don’t have to stick to the same materials for your table tops and table bases. In fact, you can achieve some quite stylish results by mixing and matching the various materials available.
Traditional styles would suggest a timber table top would have a timber base whilst glass, granite or metal tops would be matched to metal bases. This is no longer the case. Many manufacturers now produce table tops and bases that can be swapped around virtually at will.
A good example of this is a cast iron metal base that compliments a square solid wooden table top. Likewise, round granite table tops are being used in conjunction with wooden gilded edge table bases. What is important is to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations when marrying to differing styles.
It should be remembered that when buying from a commercial distributor of restaurant furniture, they often purchase their products from a variety of manufacturers. This means you cannot naturally assume that all table tops will fit all table bases. Be sure to check compatibility with the sales team before placing your final order.
The combinations of metal, glass, ceramic, timber and many other finishes can produce stylish results that may set your restaurant apart from others. Just remember, the next time you start looking at restaurant tables design for your restaurant, you can mix and match your tops and bases to get the best result for your restaurant.
