Glenora Table & Clarke Chairs
Our take on the ever-practical double pedestal style, we have a long history with the Glenora table. A nod to tradition and a focus on quality, this table is longevity proven. In 39 years we've delivered the same design, unchanged, to hundreds and hundreds of customers: same hand turned pedestals, same rich, knotty-pine top, same heavy-duty, never-in-need-of-repair extension hardware. At it's largest, the top extends to 8'10" long x 4' wide, ample space for rowdy guests, over-filled platters and off-colour jokes. We're proud that folks throughout the city – in fact, the country – host their most important gatherings around a Glenora table. Consider one for your next celebration and you'll be gathered in good company.
We spend a lot of time trying to think like travellers. And as any traveller will tell you, each destination has a unique energy and a distinct perspective. This is the call of foreign soil. Why leave home for more of the same? Destinations are defined by their own peculiar character. With local conditions, over time, and the hewing forces of sifting, sorting and selection, a characteristic narrative emerges. And indeed, a unique aesthetic.
Our Special Groupings are organized around our own distinct perspective. For one, they play to our organizational strengths. Our solid wood furniture is made in Canada and hand finished in small runs in our Ottawa wood studio. From the back-of-house perspective, our groupings are optimized for tight fabrication, fast transport and efficient finishing. Any opportunity to batch processes is an opportunity to reduce costs create value. With an emphasis on practical quality, our objective is to create groupings that are financially compelling, uniquely desirable, and very much, of Canada.
We are devoted to, and steeped in the hewing forces unique narrative of the most familiar of all destinations; home. Canada is a young country with a still-emerging history and aesthetic character. To us, so familiar, but to the traveller, rich, energetic and absolutely distinct.
ParticularsGlenora Extension Table
Adding leaves is a breeze, and with the heavy-duty extension hardware, easily a one person job. Pull from the end of the table and the top glides open. With one leaf or two, you'll be hosting guests at the drop of a hat.
We love the way a hand planed, and hand finished wood table top brings a captivating richness and warmth into a decor. We love the subtle way it softens the sight lines and absorbs light instead of reflecting it. Usually there are plenty of shiny surfaces. Instead of a shiny table surface competing with the sparkle of your table setting, a rich warm background balances, frames, and enhances it. Every gathering just feels better. Don't forget the candles!
