Custom Restaurant Tables

Restaurant Tables—we get it!  With all that comes with designing, opening, and maintaining a restaurant, customizing your restaurant tables doesn’t always rank at the top of the priority list.

However, restaurant table tops do play a big role. Think about this: The table is the only piece of restaurant furniture that is about 12” from your patron’s face during the entire dining experience.  Why not take the time to make your restaurant tables, bar tables or communal tables represent you and your style? (Not to mention the oodles of menu item selfie pics that will be taken with your tables in the background!)

At Table Topics, we can help you create the custom tables that are right for you, stay within your budget and give you the tables that will last.

Using our in-house design team and our superior customer service staff, we can help you create the restaurant table tops that are right for you. We make it easy. We start with simple ideas and help walk you through the design process. From simplistic to over the top, we have helped create restaurant furniture that makes a restaurant truly one of a kind for almost 40 years.

Once we have the table style determined, we need to make sure we stay within your budget. We are not just being nosey when we ask budget questions. We are trying to make sure that we are providing a product that is within your budget and, if not, then we want to be able to provide Value Engineered options for you. These are not “lesser” tables. These options would be just that—options.

So, we have restaurant tables that look great and are within budget. Now, we need to make sure they last. Table Topics applies our proprietary AcralyteX finish on all the restaurant table tops, bar tables and communal tables that we manufacture. This finish is scratch, heat and chemical resistant. Which means that your tables will have an increased Appearance Value. Simply put, the tables will look better longer. This is a hard, durable finish that still appears rich and warm instead of a plastic look that is often associated with hard finishes.

Table Topics was founded on the idea of creating quality restaurant tables that are both truly unique and will last for a long time. Rest assured that you will get a fitting design accompanied with the quality that will ensure your tables look great for years to come.

Visit Us At This Year’s HD Expo in Las Vegas, May 2-4

At Table Topics, we’ve spent decades crafting only the highest quality custom commercial dining tables, and we’re excited to announce that we will once again be bringing these products to the upcoming Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference (HD Expo) in fabulous Las Vegas.

To be held May 2-4 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, the HD Expo is the industry’s leading hospitality conference and trade show, and it’s an event known for showcasing new products and services for the hospitality industry.

In Las Vegas, we will also have a hands-on test for attendees to see up close just how special our exclusive Acralyte finish is for commercial tables. Acralyte is an acrylic resin that is chemically engineered to provide greater scratch, mar, chemical, and heat resistance than traditional furniture finishes (like epoxy, resin, polyester resin, urethane, and conversion varnishes). To illustrate that, we will have a scratch test set up in our Las Vegas booth for anyone to test the industry-standard urethane top against our Acralyte finish.

Attendees to our booth in Las Vegas, will also get a chance to speak directly with three of our team members who have all been with our company for more than 10 years. Hayden Powell (president), Melissa Land (director of sales and marketing), and Tammy Allen (customer service) will be available and ready to chat with anyone wanting more information about our unique design capabilities.

So don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to visit with us and see the latest tabletops at our booth in fabulous Las Vegas, #2822, at Mandalay Bay! We look forward to seeing you there!

Creative Base Styles for Communal Tables

For large as well as small tables, the base is the foundation of a good design. Table Topics has a gallery of communal and bar top options for your consideration, and an expert design team available to help as you plan your project. For some, functionality is the sole purpose due to the specifics of space or placement. We have custom-coated T bases , attractive disc foot options and many more.

Where aesthetics is top priority, bases can extend the look of your table top – like this whiskey barrel base, which is a key element of the table’s style. Or they can add a character of their own like this elaborate bridge base or this rustic metal pipe option. One of our favorites features panel bases with a split log illusion.

Just as with every other element of your design and every phase of your project, the Table Topics team will work with you to find the base that best supports your vision. Contact us to start the conversation now.


Choosing the Right Frame for Your Table

Choosing custom tables from Table Topics means you’re making a long-term investment in a valuable product. Making that product the best it can be is what we’re all about. We walk through the design process with our clients, offering our experience and expertise at each phase.

One of the most critical elements of design is the table frame. After choosing the specifics of the table’s center – solid wood, veneer, graphic inset, etc. – it’s time to choose a frame. It can be simple or it can add a critical element to your design. We have standard and budget options and we also have new designer frame options.

These new options are veneer frames with designer shapes to offset your center. They allow us to use exotic woods that may not be available in solid form, or to use traditional woods in an innovative way. We are currently offering 20 veneer frame patterns. The possibilities include classic species like pine, maple and cherry, as well as exotics such as rosewood, pecan and teak.

From here, we determine the edge and the profile to complete the look and feel that works best. Again, many options means you get a custom design to meet the specific requirements of your project, your space and your budget.

Our custom tables are built on a combination of your needs, taste and design parameters, plus our expertise and commitment to quality. The result is an amazing product our clients can be proud of for years to come.

Marquetry: It’s All About the Details

At Table Topics, we love the details. We are excited to imagine them, trained to confirm them and equipped to deliver them. If you want to add a little something extra to your table, trim or unique design elements, we will bring it to life.

The technique of veneered marquetry was inspired by practices in 16th-century Florence and at Naples. In marquetry, inlaid patterns made from small pieces of variously colored wood or other materials is used for the decoration of furniture, forming decorative patterns, designs or pictures. In modern craftsmanship, marquetry commonly used time-consuming, knife-cut veneers. Today, many producers have switched to fret or scroll saw techniques and even laser cutting.

Table Topics offers a large selection of marquetry trim options – available in both real veneer and digital options – and can even offer custom colors in our digital designs. Look through our designs, such as this digital raffia and fabric look,  or check out these images of marquetry trim options.

If you have a custom design in mind, get started by going over our specification guide or by contacting us directly. With your design specs and some general detail about your project, we can get the conversation started and the process underway. The result will be an amazing, durable product, second to none, that will set your project and your space apart.

You dream, we build.
