In a quiet little hamlet nestled just south of the White Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire, there sits an institution of exceptional learning; a place where solid foundations are formed around international academic programming, where students are taught ecological sustainability and encouraged to ‘look beyond’ through experiential classrooms.

And now, they have a whole bunch of new dining tables.
The New Hampton School, in New Hampton, NH, hired us to design and build forty new dining tables for their student dining hall. The tables were delivered in May.
Each table is 60” in diameter; large enough to comfortably seat eight students. Simple and practical in design, the tables are made of solid red oak. They are perfectly suited to the light, open dining hall at The New Hampton School.
Building furniture for independent schools, colleges and universities is very rewarding. We know that many of the students using these tables now will send their children and even grandchildren to this same school, and our tables will be there, serving them all.
(Note: we did not provide the chairs for the dining hall; title quote from Hamlet)
