A beautifully crafted extending dining table, designed by Peter Hayward for British maker Vanson in the 1950s. Take a good look at the photographs to witness the stunning grain patterns on this piece. The gentle curve to the table’s top sets it apart aesthetically from more traditional dining table shapes. This model is extremely popular due to the fact that it can be extended to seat 6 to 8 people. It features an extension leaf, that stores easily underneath the table top, making it a very versatile dining table. Other design highlights include the beautiful banding around the edge of the table top and the attractive shaping to the table’s legs.

With an impressive client list that included G-Plan, Parker Knoll, Greaves & Thomas, Uniflex, Race Furniture and not forgetting Heals and Son in London. Several of his designs were selected for the Design Council and Design Index and because this acclaim represented British design in the UK and abroad until his death in 2005.
