Table Tops.

As you may recall, when it came to picking a dining room table for my open concept kitchen/ dining area I chose to design my own table with the amazing team at Huston & Company in Kennebunkport, Maine.  Since then they have added the Gates table to their repertoire (and website) and since then have made quite a few for clients all over the country! Each one is custom and unique to the style and needs of each client (the real beauty of handmade, custom furniture) and this collection of images shows all the variations they’ve gone in size, shape and stain color!  I’m working on a new design- a desk- that plays off this style mixed with some campaign influence that we will release in the coming months! I’m so excited!

Here’s the original that sits in my own house:


Wellesley, MA- rectangle table (no leaves) 80″ x 55″ in white oak with dark walnut stain (and check out that light fixture too!)


Wellesley, MA- oval table 75″ x 48″ in red oak with dark walnut stain. (This happens to be a client of mine)


New York, NY- 48″ x 36″ rectangle in white oak with custom wenge stain.



Glencoe, IL- 64″ round in white oak, custom whitewash stain (just like mine).


Newtonville, MA- 73″ diameter round in ash with custom oak stain and removable lazy susan.


Cutchogue, NY- A rectangle version 64″ x 44″ with to 13″ leaves and inlay detail.


(in process in the shop with one leaf)


It’s so fun for me to see how all these different people customized my design.  I love, love, loved working with these guys and if you have any custom furniture needs contact them for more information!

    Okay – that has to be the coolest thing to see how people were able to take your design and customize it in so many ways. I loved the lines of your table, but need a rectangle for our kitchen and couldn’t envision the curved legs with a squared top. Now that I see it I absolutely love it!

    I am the proud owner of one of these tables (Newton). A friend of mine who reads this blog referred me to the table when I was searching for the perfect, yet elusive, round table for our home. I can’t say enough good things about Huston & Company. They are amazing to work with, and the quality of our table is absolutely outstanding. I got to visit their shop and it was a meaningful experience to see the craftsmanship first hand. Erin – thank you for designing such a beautiful table! We love our table and can’t wait to finish decorating our new dining room.

    WOW! All beautiful! What a compliment to you too!

  10. I would LOVE this table in our foyer! It’s a big open space with a lovely fireplace on one side and the staircase on the other, and I think a round table right in the middle would be gorgeous!

  11. Erin Gates says:

    Some people may call it spam but we call them backlinks. Google actually rewards your site or blog by upping your search engine position because of the traffic your site attracts. So what is a backlink? Backlink” is a term that refers to links that point to a website or webpage from another website. This type of link also might be called an inlink or incoming link. Backlinks on other sites can increase a website’s traffic. They also are tools used in search engine optimization (SEO), because the number and quality of backlinks that point to a website’s often plays a role in the site’s rank among search results. So don’t delete them get involve and feel free to post one on my site
