Investing in well-made furniture seems like a marker for good adulting, but what happens when your dining table for two suddenly needs to accommodate 12 for Friendsgiving? Transformer Table, a modular furniture company from Canada, has your dinner party game on lock — their expandable table made from solid wood starts off small at just 18 inches and expands to 10 feet (!) in less time than it takes to mix a cocktail.
The table, which recently went viral on TikTok and Instagram, transforms into a desk for one, a table for four, and a dining table that comfortably seats twelve. It feels like watching a soothing ASMR video to see the table expand from a desk into a long table in a few quick steps.
Plus If you’re a stickler for matching furniture, then you’ll be happy to know that, for a limited time, the Transformer Table comes with its own (free!) coffee table. The coffee table doubles as a storage unit for the dining table’s panels when they’re not needed, keeping them protected and out of the way.
Whether you’re in a studio apartment, have a small dining area, or simply want to be economical about space, the Transformer Table is a solid foundation for a great night in.
How Does The Transformer Table Work?
Firstly, there’s no assembly required. The table is ready to go right out of the box, and it arrives as an 18-inch console — also a convenient size for easy storage. When you’re ready to expand the table, whether that’s to accommodate four people or 12 people, one person should be able to do it alone. Just lift the top panel, pull the table’s telescopic mechanism to the length you want, and add the extra panels (up to five) by clipping them underneath.
What Is The Transformer Table Made From?
Each piece in Transformer Table’s collection is made from FSC-certified hardwood, which means that the furniture has been made of wood harvested from a responsibly managed forest. The table comes in four wood finishes to match your decor: American Mahogany, Siberian Birch, Canadian Dark Oak and Australian Acaccia.
