Bon Appetit: 10 Unique Dining Tables

Many of us are forced to deal with restrictions these days when it comes to our diets: low-carb, low-fat, gluten-free, and the like.  Although plenty of substitutions and creative workarounds are available — particularly for the most adventurous among us — anything short of total freedom can sort of take away from the simple joys of eating.  But since the power of suggestion is, indeed, powerful, the art of making a meal feel like an event can actually make it taste better.  Enter today’s roundup of unique dining tables; they elevate a simple dinner into an event.  Whether it’s a grass-top creation from Haiko Cornelissen of a work of art suspended atop what appear to be metal ribbons courtesy of Jason Phillips, there’s a table in this series to suit every imagination.  So cheers, and bon appetit.
