Engineering the $150,000 Dinner Table – The Fletcher Capstan

Now, I know what you are thinking…”A table…for $150k… what’s it do… feed me and then clean-up the dishes?”

Well, it’s still a round dining table, which you and five family members eat at it like any other table. This difference is – if you happen to have six more people come over, this thing folds out like a Swiss-army knife designed by a Japanese origami expert!

One more in case you missed it!

Designed and manufactured by DB Fletcher, in England, this precision made table is not only a finely crafted piece of furniture but also an engineering masterpiece.  Created using Robert Jupe’s patented designs from 1835, this table is not the old expanding one from your grandma’s house with leaves and parts in the closet. If you think it’s cool you’re not alone, the price tag goes well beyond $150k depending on your materials and options.
