Eat Like You're At Recess On The Swing Dining Table

Nothing kills a dinner party vibe like an extended lull in conversation or the aggressive butting of heads, which is why it's best to keep things light and inviting. And what better way to achieve that than by seating everyone around a giant, round table with swinging chairs?

From the same folks who brought you The Abyss Table, the King Arthur Round Swing Table is a large, round dining table surrounded by chairs suspended from an overhead frame. It's kind of like a swing set on a playground for children who would rather discuss the current crisis in the Middle East during recess than play a game of tag.

Depending on where you plan to hold court, the dining surface comes in a choice of white birch or walnut with eight or 12 chairs, an indoor or outdoor version, and with an optional shade on top.
