My New Table Design With Huston & Co.

As you saw a few weeks ago in our office reveal, we have a new conference table in our space–my new design with Huston & Company that hits their website today!  The inspiration behind this came from the desire for a simple, farmhouse style table that had a little bit more style. Bill and Saer at Huston (who make my original design, the Gates Table) helped me refine the idea down to this simple shape but with some really interesting details to it.  Borrowing brass accents from Campaign style furniture and a modern leg design that cuts through the top of the table, I think the finished product, called the Newton Table (after our town where we live and my office is), is INCREDIBLE.

Right now Huston & Co. is offering 10% off all Newton dining tables through July 30th! See details and restrictions here. 

The lines are strong but elegant and the finish is rustic but durable (unlike some raw-wood farm tables sold in stores- this one will stand up to kids).  We decided that the beveled edge on the table added a lot to the design and really complimented the legs. Such a pretty profile, no?

The best part has to be the brass accents- hand forged in their Maine workshop.  The way the tabletop sits so the legs come through and sit flush with the top shows off the incredible artistry of these super talented furniture makers. (Of note: these tables can be made without the brass as well if preferred).

They also made up a round version which came out BANANAS. I am obsessed with it and cannot wait to use it in a project! The leg style allows for easy chair push in too, which is important!

Modern but rustic, simple but interesting. Its perfect.

And to build on this concept they also made coffee tables too— and this walnut version is amazing. The wood was specially selected for its beautiful grain.

This is a shorter version of the coffee table design with no overhang.  They also could make a desk or console table in this style if desired.

I adore that these tables are hand made in Maine and built to last a lifetime.  I always encourage my clients to invest in a good dining table– a well made one can last several generations, and these are that kind of quality.

  1. You are forging a new path in the design industry. I picked up your book at my husband’s friends house – a male friend who is very much into proper décor. I thought it was his fiancées. He let me borrow it and I’ve read it cover to cover. Now, when I do morning chores, I give myself intermittent breaks and read your blog as my “reward” for getting home responsibilities accomplished. Such a treat.

    I do have a design question. If the table you have for your new office were used as a home dining room table would you cover it with a table cloth for holiday dinners or just do chargers and a table runner?

  2. These are gorgeous!!! I can’t wait to renovate my kitchen and use this round table! I am obsessed!!!

  3. This is beautiful and I’m hoping to purchase one. I actually contacted Huston after I saw the table in one of your Instagram pics. Would you be able to tell me how the finish on your dining table has held up? I’m replacing a mahogany table that is so sensitive to moisture and heat, and want to be able to eat at the new table without constantly warning guests not to put their water glasses down on it. Thank you.

    1. Sam, this is Kate from Huston & Company. I’d be so happy to talk with you about the finish we use. I can say, to be brief, it is very, very liquid resistant, and very durable. Feel free to contact us to discuss it in detail.

      1. Our family has been so happy with our Gates / Huston & Co. table! We have three young children and the table is holding up beautifully to spills, water rings left by sweating glasses, and wipe downs 3xs per day. These are incredibly well made and Erin’s designs are so beautifully simple, fresh and classic.

  4. Whoa, that is GORGEOUS! The cerused finish and the brass accents are just divine. The round table especially is bananas. Great job!

  5. Love the lower slung legs. This seems so modern,yet so classic! Proportion is everything!

  6. How beautiful :o I love how simple and rustic the table is! I’m absolutely obsessed with this design! Everything about it is so stunning!

  7. Borrowing brass accents from Campaign style furniture and a modern leg design that cuts through the top of the table, I think the finished product, called the Newton Table (after our town where we live and my office is), is INCREDIBLE. Really?
