Dine in style with the Hector dining table, an ultra-modern design in concrete and oak from Danish brand Eberhart Furniture. Offered in three finish combinations, the table features either a concrete or massive oak surface, sitting atop a five legged base, also in solid massive oak. A sleek brass or steel ring on the table base is functional and adds extra appeal. Optionally include the matching oak extension leaves to boost the diameter of the table from 120cm to 170cm, providing space for extra guests when required.
Eberhart cast their concrete using a controlled molding and curing process, before allowing the tops to harden freely. This means that each resulting surface is beautifully unique, featuring tonal differences and characteristic air holes. The light concrete tops are kept un-oiled for a raw, unprocessed appearance, and are nano-treated to help the concrete repel fluids and lessen the exposure to staining. If you prefer a slightly darker shade of grey, the manufacturer recommends treating the surface with linseed oil. The dark concrete tops are cast with black pigment, and oil-treated with black iron oxide, resulting in a dark grey surface that varies in tone. See the 'Swatches' tab for an idea of the concrete and wood finishes.
The massive oak used in the bases and tabletop is selected for its characteristic knots and splinters, and has not been treated in any way. This retains the appealing ashy tones of the raw wood, but leaves it susceptible to stains. To maintain this raw look but give the wood some resistance, the manufacturer recommends treating it with white soap. If preferred, the oak can be pre-treated with linseed oil to give greater stain-resistance. This option will turn the wood a darker shade, and makes the details and woodgrain more prominent. Contact us if you would like your wood pre-treated with oil. The base of the dark option has been treated with black oil to complement the dark concrete top.
