If you do, then you need to travel to Europe and buy Gargantua by Extremis (www.extremis.be), or stop by in NYC at Nova Studio International, Extremis’ regional dealer.
The Belgians, apparently, are no longer just the masters of chocolate; they have great patio furniture designers, too!
What makes the Gargantua table by Extremis special is certainly its futuristic design —it immediately reminded me of a little patio-friendly UFO — and its combination of metal and Iroko ecological hardwood, but what makes it really special it’s the adjustable benches it features.
Finally, kids rejoice: you’ll be able reach everywhere (sorry Mom and Dad, it’s only fair).
– Low, for adults
– Medium, for children
– High, for use as a table extension
Yes, you’ve read that right, you can make use of another ingenious trick when you have a lot people over; you can set all the benches at maximum height to create a truly gargantuan table, capable of hosting up to 12 people for a great meal together.
Of course, you’ll need to bring in chairs from the house in this case, but, hey, who minds?
