At New England Home Interiors, we pride ourselves on supplying quality furniture for every room in your home. So, when it comes to durable and stylish tables that are built to last, you needn’t look any further.
We’ve partnered with leading furniture designers to bring you high performance Dekton tables that are as attractive as they are strong. If you’ve never come across Dekton furniture before and want to learn more about this innovative material, keep reading. We’ll also introduce you to some of our most popular products for inspiration.
Made in Spain by Cosentino, Dekton combines porcelain, quartz stone and glass to create an incredibly robust and attractive, composite material suitable for tabletops, work surfaces, wall cladding and flooring.
The production process involves compressing the base materials under immense pressure to fuse the particles together and create one solid piece. This mimics the metamorphic transformation that natural stone encounters over millennia, but at a much faster rate. The result – a dense, high-strength material known as Dekton.
Once pressed, this amazing material can be decorated with a variety of colours, natural material prints and finishes. The colour or design is digitally printed onto the surface and baked into the material at a high temperature for unparalleled durability.
Dekton countertops are popular in kitchens due to their impressive scratch resistance even when faced with sharp knives. This feature also makes this wonder material ideal for dining and coffee tables that seat crockery, liquids and other items that could mark more delicate surfaces.
Dekton dining tables are also highly resistant to extreme temperatures. As a result, you can place hot casserole dishes and even pans straight onto the tabletop without charring or warping the material. Conversely, Dekton surfaces aren’t fazed by chilly ice buckets either.
Given its density, Dekton withstands impact very well. Each sheet of this cutting edge material is one solid piece, so there are no joints that could separate or crack if something hits or is dropped on it. The surface is also resistant to abrasion – ideal for family households where scuffs are likely.
Unlike many natural stone models, Dekton tables are non-porous and impervious to water and other liquids. This means they’re very hygienic, stain resistant and low maintenance. Dekton can be cleaned with soap and water, and won’t need resealing like granite or marble.
Finally, Dekton is perfect for tabletops that are likely to come into contact with direct sunlight. This is due to its mighty UV resistance, which ensures the embedded colouring won’t fade over time. As such, you can place your table wherever you like – indoors or out!
No matter which kind of table you’re looking for, at New England Home Interiors, we have a range of luxury Dekton furniture in over 20 different finishes to suit your needs. This includes solid colours, as well as mock stone and marble effect designs. We can even help you colour match your new table with your existing Dekton worktops for a cohesive look.
From slimline console tables for hallways to indestructible Dekton dining tables for chaotic family mealtimes, explore some of our bestselling models below.
Sturdy and stylish, our versatile Dekton dining table range features eight models, including round, rectangular and oval designs in an array of different sizes. For larger families, the popular Dakota dining table is a great choice, with an extendable leaf that can be pulled out to increase its capacity for special occasions.
Better yet, the extendable section is mounted on wheels at the base of the legs for seamless manoeuvrability and no heavy lifting. The steel frame also features cleverly inverted U-shape legs for extra space underneath – particularly useful when seating sizeable groups.
For more intimate gatherings, opt for the round Cleveland dining table with a contemporary pedestal-style base. You can then tailor the Dekton surface and metal frame with a custom colour combination that will complement your décor. On the other hand, a polished faux marble top like the Aura or Entzo will ensure maximum impact even in small dining rooms.
