The Fredrik Dining Table has a lot going for it, and there's so much more than what meets the eye. On the surface, this is a strikingly stylish Scandinavian inspired design defined by sleek angles and simple form. Its good looks can be attributed to its award-winning designer, Lino Codato of Italy. But what truly makes the Fredrik Dining Table shine are the details that Mr. Codato included under the scratch, burn and stain-resistant surface. The Fredrik's top is actually constructed of an engineered wood (with solid American Ash wood inlays) with an applied powder-coating that is not only visually beautiful but that which has been cured to seal out chemicals and bacteria. Combined with its unwavering durability in heavy-use dining areas, the top is environment-safe, while the legs are environment-friendly (constructed of FSC-certified solid American Ash wood).
