Magazin has a selection of wooden sample boards in the showroom, so you can touch, see and feel your way to the right creation. Walnut and oak are the most popular choices, although cherry and elmwood are also available, and a variety of finishes, from simple and sleek to wild, brushed and rough (showcasing the wood’s natural knots, streaks and stains) can be selected.

Very accessibly priced, tables can be delivered within three months of the order date… meaning now is the perfect time to order before summer.
