Postcard from Carmel: The coolest dining room table in the world

  • Pin It

Yeah, okay, I'm a furniture geek.

I spotted this ultra-fabulous round wooden dining room table in Carmel during my Girlfriend Getaway with fellow food bloggers Patti Londre (Worth the Whisk) and Dorothy Reinhold (Shockingly Delicious). When I saw the ingenious way the table went from big to bigger, I had to pull out my camera.

I love dining room tables that expand. But I hate having to store extra leaves elsewhere in the house. Watch the video and look at how this one is engineered. I thought my own draw-leaf table was cool. This one is WAY cooler.

Location: Carrigg's of Carmel in Carmel-by-the-Sea. The salesperson was not too nice to me, actually - you may be able to hear her telling me to "get a life" as I'm rolling - so I'm not suggesting you shop there. But if you're into cool furniture and you're in Carmel, stop by and take a look.

OMG! How cool is that! What was the price of that amazing invention?

I think it was around $7K but truthfully I tuned the price out because I don't even have room for a round dining table in this house! :)

She told you to get a life?! Obviously a woman well-trained in the art of selling. For $7k she should have been offering you crumpets and neck massages. You should send her the link to this blog, so she'll see the full life you actually do have, and maybe learn to keep her stupid yap shut. I'll make that table for you, sweety.

I love furniture and that is one of the coolest tables I have ever seen! Don't you wonder who sits around and thinks that stuff up?

That is cool. Mine has extensions that sit underneath the table and you can pull the table apart and pull them up. I love it!

PS Blogger hates me and refuses to recognize my avitar. This is Sippity Sup. Which is why I get tired of Blogger. Arggh. Sorry to vent.

Weird - all of a sudden the video disappeared for me! I think I've fixed it now.

Greg, of course you are a girlfriend, and I know you love round tables! And I always know it's you when you comment. I'm not sure why it doesn't recognize you...haven't heard any other complaints. Sorry friend.
