New items from the Spring 2014 Collection are continuing to make their way into stores and our online store. Our latest dining pieces are constructed with natural materials like solid wood, raw marble and soft linen. The new designs have a warm and comfortable feel, making them versatile and easy to personalize. Paired with the right accessories, these pieces fit into a city condo and modern cottage, alike.
We sat down with Madi, EQ3’s Casegoods Product Developer, this morning to talk about the new dining tables and chairs we’re introducing today. Look for her product commentary below each image.
The Farmhouse Dining Table features solid white oak construction and rustic details that are reminiscent of the traditional country table. Clean lines keep the look modern, while irregularities in the wood enhance the table’s natural appeal.
“The development of this table began with the material – using long planks of solid wood to create an elegant surface for dining. A lot of time was spent working on proportions for the table to look refined yet feel comfortable.” – Madi
The Mesa Dinette Table, designed by Berlin-based studio 45 Kilo, combines a simple profile with modern details and quality materials. The table’s round solid marble top and unique iron sheet metal legs maximize seating – perfect for small-spaced apartments and condos.
“We met 45 Kilo at the Milan Salone in 2012 and loved their pieces. Working with them has been such a great experience. They’re so talented and have an interesting perspective on design – most notably their use of materials and form.” – Madi
The Kendall Dining Table gives traditional dining an updated aesthetic with modernized proportions and a solid reclaimed teak top. Each top is one of a kind and features natural variations in colour and pattern. Two size options offer flexibility to accommodate any home or budget.
“With Kendall we worked to create a base that would almost fade into the background of a room, and that could carry a really elegant top. We kept a one inch dimension for the metal tube base, which lead to the cross base detail, designed to provide stability.” – Madi
Len Dining Chair
The Len Dining Chair features a solid ash frame with molded back rest and grey upholstered seat.
“This is one of my favorite dining chairs in our collection – we worked with Canadian designer Richard Trory, who had been building the prototype of this chair on his own. During the EQ3 sampling stage, we added in the upholstered seat for added comfort.” – Madi
The Lyla Side Chair and Arm Chair boast a charming, classic design that’s perfect for dining and occasional use. The chair is constructed of rubberwood, and comes in two styles (side chair and arm chair) and four colour options (red, white, grey wash and black) for added personality.
Lyla’s design was inspired by the classic Scandinavian Windsor Chair. I especially love the armchair (not shown), as I think it has an interesting form and comfort.” – Madi
The Frances Chair is one of EQ3’s most comfortable dining chairs, thanks to a curved back rest and soft linen upholstery. Solid oak legs lend a rustic and wholesome feel to the design.
“We are excited to offer natural linen on our Frances and Altoh Chairs.” – Madi
