Initially I wanted to have a long, trestle-style table made from the floorboards for our entrance-way but am now wondering whether or not to get a 10-seater dining table made as well. How cool would that look? These are the floorboards - which actually look darker in real life - from which we could get a mirror frame or photo frames made as well.
This Queens Park Residence in Sydney by CplusC Architects and Builders had this Kauri pine table custom-made from floorboards of the original home which looks great against the darker timber throughout the house.

In the meantime, I have been looking around at other possible dining tables we could purchase, such as these French rustic tables from Rust up at Avalon on Sydney's Northern beaches ...
I also quite like round dining tables which are cosier and great for ensuring everyone can take part in the one conversation. A beautiful dining nook in the home of Mara Murphy from Dutch Door Press.
Or modern ones, like this one from eco-friendly Australian designer furniture Jardan ...
