    Feature Product: Hyper Dining Table

    Feature Product: Hyper Dining Table

    As Calligaris celebrates their 95th anniversary this year, we have been inspired to take a look back at their wonderful history. Starting out with just one chair in 1923, the Italian brand has grown into a worldwide company, providing beautiful design and exceptional quality over for nearly a century. It is no surprise that over the years they have perfected their craft, becoming renowned in the world of furniture.

    The Hyper Dining table has been in Calligaris’ line up for 17 years, and it still remains one of our favourites of all of Calligaris’ dining tables.

    A simple, yet ingenious design, the Hyper table features extending leaves that are housed underneath either end of the tempered glass top. The mechanism is simple – pull the extension out toward yourself, lift it up, and push back in to line up with the top. In a few simple movements, this 6 person table easily converts to seat 10.

    This table, however, does not sacrifice form for function. Its solid, angular wood base creates a contrast with the light, airy glass table top. The chrome accents connecting the frame to the top are a subtle detail that enhances the simplicity of the table. Due to it’s streamlined, uncomplicated design, the Hyper lends itself to many different interior spaces. It’s a contemporary table that is able to enhance both transitional and modern spaces, while providing a practical and functional design.

    With its timeless design and practicality, it’s no wonder why the Hyper table has been a client favourite for all these years, and surely will continue to be for many years to come.

    Five Tips For Choosing a Dining Table

    A dining table is the hub of the home, a gathering place for family and friends. It is also a significant purchase that you hope will last a lifetime. The best dining table purchase will be one that is affordable, solidly constructed with a timeless style and the right fit for your space. Consider these five tips when purchasing your dining room table:

    1. Affordability and Timelessness. Trends are perfect for accessories but not major purchases like dining tables. Keep it simple, within your budget and avoid jumping on the latest trend. Omnia XL Dining Table by Calligaris has clean lines and a timeless appeal. Omnia is a functional rectangular table that can seat up to 10 people comfortably, features wooden legs and your choice of glass, wood or ceramic-stone top.

    2. Stability and Construction. If you want your dining table to last through years of children, homework and dinner party wear and tear, choose a table made from hardwood, such as mahogany, walnut, oak or teak. Tables made from engineered or composite woods, which include plywoods and MDF, are durable and economical but are never as strong as hardwood. Solid wood is durable and easy to repair. Wood expands and contracts with heat and humidity and can show scratches and wear, but is considerably easy to care for.

    Designed by Calligaris, the Jungle Dining Table is an inspiring artful approach to design. With a walnut top and base, the Jungle table is characterized by two striking, intertwined wooden bases depicting tree branches. Designed by west coast designer, Shawn Place, the Place Dining Table from EQ3 enjoys a glass-top with durable oak or ash legs. Quality craftsmanship and striking form define this contemporary dining table. Glass dining tables are sturdy and provide a reflective surface while bringing a visual lightness to a room. Today’s versions are made with tempered safety glass, which means the glass resists scratches and heat and won’t shatter if knocked.


    3. Fit. Consider the dining table's visual weight and account for space around it for chairs and comfort. The Echo Dining Table by Calligaris is a modern extendable dining table with a sleek design. It features a Calligaris-patented automatic system that lifts up the side extension leaves and aligns them with the glass top in two easy steps. The pedestal base offers top comfort for up to 10 people. A timeless marble top is always a showstopper.

    4. Shape. Settle on a shape that will work in your dining room. Round tables are great in compact areas and eat-in kitchens that have square dining zones. The Vortex Dining Table by Calligaris offers a glass or ceramic top that marries beautifully with the metal base and is secured to the frame by three circular steel plates. The design of the Vortex table provides flexible seating.

    5. Seats. How many people do you need to seat on a regular basis? Simply put, buy a table that responds to your everyday needs rather than the exception. To accommodate compact spaces, EQ3 has created the Mesa Round Dinette Table. Designed by German design team, 45 Kilo, the Mesa table has modern appeal with a sleek white or black marble top or oak top option.

    Floor Lamps We Love

    Floor Lamps We Love

    Lighting rules are simple. Depending on the size of the room, you need at least two or three light sources to create the right mood. You want your lighting to cast an incandescent glow over the room to create an inviting, cozy feel. Think Hygge, Danish concept and 2017 buzzword. Of course, always choose furniture wisely but remember that lighting sets the tone for the entire room, so the more options you have the more versatile your room becomes. Depending on the style of your room, table lamps on end tables can add bulk to a room, especially in small spaces. Floor lamps are a great way to create warmth while keeping tighter spaces visually weightless. Kaslo Floor Lamp by EQ3 (above) is versatile for a contemporary or traditionally styled room.Go bold with statement floor lamps that can now replace hanging pendants in dining rooms — like this Cast Floor Lamp with a solid marble base by EQ3. If your living area doesn't have overhead lighting, floor lamps will do the trick. The Cast Floor Lamp can articulate and telescope, so you can adjust the light to shine where you need it.In spacious open plan living areas, floor lamps not only illuminate the space but can be statement pieces that ground an area. The Martian Floor Lamp by EQ3 brings a retro feel with five arms to adjust for versatility. The sturdy marble base and chrome stem fits well into contemporary spaces and can be used in almost any room.


    The showstopping Pom Pom Floor Lamp by Calligaris makes a bold statement without overwhelming the room. Inspired by botanical studies of exotic plants, the glass shades naturally and harmoniously extend from the frame, creating a piece that is sinuous and smooth. The finish on the glass softens the lamp, creating a warm, inviting feel. The cement and resin base is sturdy and fits in a contemporary space.Tripod floor lamps offer a unique architectural quality like EQ3's Axle Floor Lamp that offers a black or white fabric shade paired with a pinewood and metal base to provide a natural organic feel.
