The everyday hero

For daily versatility, push together two tables for family dining and leave two against the wall to create a workspace.

The perfect dinner party

When entertaining a crowd, place three tables lengthwise and use the fourth as a buffet table. Simple and elegant!

The game night champ

With 4 tables, a bit of white decorative tape, and a ping pong net, you’ve got yourself a Friday night tournament.

The multifunctional space

Place the tables in a zigzag arrangement to make distinct spaces for different activities like game-playing, homework, or teatime.

The family assembly line

Have the laundry sorted and folded in no time by getting the whole crew to pitch in. Set up two rows of two tables with stations for each chore.
