expandable coffee table 1

Two sliding elements within a rectangular form expand in various directions so this contemporary coffee table design can accommodate extra guests, hold magazines or serve as an impromptu work surface. The leaves of the REK Table by Reinier de Jong extend in a number of configurations so you can customize the available surfaces to your needs.

The top and sides are made of white HPL (high-pressure laminate) with edges finished in either oak or beech solid wood. Beveled edges make it easy to grip the leaves as you extend them, and built-in stops keep you from pulling them all the way out.

The table can grow from 60 by 80 cm (about 23.5 by 31.5 in) when collapsed to a maximum length of 170 cm (67 in) and width of  130 cm (51 in). Pull the extensions all the way out to one side for a cascading effect, or at opposing angles.
