Contemporary furniture cannot do without design round tables, multitasking and space-saving accessories able to adapt perfectly to any area of the house. Without edges, they give greater lightness to the environment, and without the four legs on which rectangular or square tables generally rest, they eliminate any possible obstacle to seating. Modern tables with attractive design structures, often highlighted by the glass top or in precious materials such as SuperMarble, can become the protagonists of the living room or discreet allies in the dining room.

Speaking of captivating structures for modern tables, a theme that catches the eye when browsing the Bontempi Casa catalog is that of the table with crossed legs, the result of a great design work and declined in different designs. The ring structure of the Fusion table can recall a jewel, or the orbits of two planets that cross; those of the Artistico and Barone tables, on the other hand, are made up of plates that cross in the center as in a dance; finally, a clearer geometry design was chosen for the structure of the Millennium table.

Important elements of the furniture, the large tables evoke the pleasure of conviviality but also lend themselves to becoming multitasking worktops, especially in times of smart working. Inevitably protagonists of the scene with their generous volumes, they can be further enhanced by placing them next to design bookcases, modern sideboards or large mirrors. Particularly important in this case is the combination of the chairs, to be chosen in accordance with the design and finishes of the table.

The modern and functional version of the large table? The design extendable tables, of course. The latest trends in living confirm this: we mainly ask for functionality and flexibility from our furniture, or the ability to adapt to the different needs of everyday life, and the extendable table is the ideal answer to these requests. The extendable dining table is the ace in the hole for family gatherings and other special occasions, just as the design extendable tables for the living room or for the study are the multitasking solution for dedicating oneself to one’s passions or work.

When choosing the kitchen table, in addition to the style of the furniture, it is also good to consider a question of functionality. In fact, its dimensions must be carefully evaluated in relation to the surrounding space, to allow the right freedom of movement, and to favor stain-proof surfaces and finishes such as SuperMarble or scratch-resistant glass for the countertop. Precautions to be reserved also for the choice of chairs that will be combined with the table.

Who said that the legs of a table can’t be ornamental items? Modern design breaks all the rules and finds new creative solutions turning them into pieces of art. Et voilà, a cross-legged table – a true design piece – is ready to be admired. It is the protagonist of the design scene thanks to its originality and future-oriented look. The structure, a result of a great work, is usually made of metal or lacquered metal, while the top could be in wood, crystal, Supermarble or Super Ceramic, refined materials that help you creating a bespoke table for your house. Also, its functionality surprises us: it could be fixed or extendable, rounded or squared, it doesn’t obstruct any seats and it’s an invite to conviviality. Sitting around a cross-legged table for lunch with family and friends to go through an old pictures album or to play board games will be fun.

A cross-legged table can be the best piece of furniture to furnish a modern and elegant living room, as it creates a focal point in the area that catches the eye of the guests.

The original structure and the combination of two different materials make this table perfect to furnish a mountain cottage that requires a touch of contemporaneity.

Round tables for all the rooms in the house? Absolutely yes, as long as the furniture is in a contemporary style. The round table, after all, is considered a multi-tasking piece of furniture by the most careful designers. First of all, it is a space-saving table: the lack of the pointed corners of a more traditional rectangular table makes the room airy and comfortable to cross. Not only that: in most models, the rounded table is not equipped with four legs, but often has a central structure that supports it – thus eliminating any probable obstacle for the sittings. Then if we talk about round extendable tables … We have before us the perfect solution that encourages conviviality even in the smallest spaces.

The round kitchen tables are mainly made of stoneware with ceramic effect, marble or concrete, elegant, robust, scratch-proof, unalterable to the action of acids, hydro and oil repellent, hygienic, non-toxic, heat-resistant, ETERNAL material.

The round tables for living rooms are modern round tables, often made of wood or shiny crystal or scratch-resistant opaque glass. There are also small round tables perfect for a minimal living room, or to be placed at the entrance. The important thing is to choose the style carefully, depending on personal taste and the type of furniture that you prefer between the walls of your home. Without any doubt, compared to the more traditional proposals of square and rectangular tables, the round tables have a contemporary image.

Modern round tables

Among the most innovative modern round tables in the Bontempi Casa catalog there is the Podium table. A fixed table – but also in its extendable version – with a solid base in concrete. The top is available in solid wood, veneered wood, crystal, scratch-resistant crystal, concrete and SuperMarble. The elliptical shape of Podium, combined with a contemporary material such as concrete, fits harmoniously with the most luminous design environments. The lack of side legs and the presence of a solid central base ensure a perfect seat and allow a comfortable table service.

Extendable round tables

An extendable round table is a true passepartout furniture. The rounded tables, in fact, allow you to save a large portion of space – thanks to the lack of edges. That’s why they are the solution chosen by many people, both for the kitchen, practical and used every day, and for the livingroom.

The ambivalent proposal by Bontempi Casa is the Giro table, the extendable round table suitable for kitchens, living rooms and studios. In fact, Giro has a synchronized telescopic opening and closing system that is practical for an everyday use, super modern and practically invisible. The structure in lacquered or chromed steel is solid but light, not bulky. The top, to be chosen in crystal or anti-scratch glass, gives a certain charm to this comfortable and multi-purpose table. Recommended for those looking for conviviality and who love lunches with friends.

Vintage style round tables

Modern vintage. The most real oxymoron that exists. The vintage and retro style, in fact, is a very current taste, that persists both in fashion and furnishings. The search for stylistic elements belonging to past eras has an eternal charm that does not stop trending. This principle is inspired by the Glamor Round table by Bontempi Casa, a classic table that incorporates materials and colors typical of the ‘70s, but reinterprets them in a contemporary key. This model of round table can have in fact the four side legs, just like the sturdy tables of the past. The anti-scratch glass top gives the object (of art) a more contemporary allure. And the contrast effect is harmonious. The SuperMarble version combines the visual and tactile qualities of marble with the resistance and durability of the material patented by Bontempi Casa.

Round industrial style tables

The 2019 trendy decor style: Industrial Chic is the new black, they say. The mix of typically industrial materials, such as metal, that blend with luxurious stylistic elements – glass surfaces or golden details. The Sander table by Bontempi Casa represents its essence. The elliptical shape of the anti-scratch crystal of the top communicates elegance and harmony, the structure in gold-lacquered steel gives industrial references but at the same time brings back luxury. A true design object for connoisseurs that not only transcends the functionality of a practical round table for living room, but becomes the true protagonist of the most sophisticated living rooms
