Atlas Dining Table



Ashley Hicks



29.5” H X 40” D X 82” L



Oak & Cast Metal Legs



The Atlas dining table has a top of smooth stained oak, on cast metal legs whose pierced, attenuated form was inspired by Oceanic sculpture - but also makes the idea table base, gracefully avoiding diners’ legs.

Custom finishes and sizes are available. Shown here in black stained oak. – Ashley Hicks Website.


This piece by Ashley Hicks has a “Je ne sais quoi” quality to it.  The table has very interesting visual weight as a complete piece and definitely exudes a very sleek contemporary vibe. 


The fact that the main material is solid oak makes it warm, real.   The legs, I have to say, are my favourite part, they are organic and futuristic.  The blend of all these elements makes this piece memorable and unique.



Delicious !!!

Gorgeous table; yes, the legs are beautifully organic and modern, but their roots definitely lie in baroque Spanish and Italian tables. Thanks so much for featuring this beauty.

The legs are really unique. They look like two people holding up the table top -- just like Atlas holding up the earth :-)
