The table was the center of my grandmother’s household when I was a boy in Norway. I was always surprised when my friends at school told me that their family only had dinner together on the weekends. In my grandmother’s house we shared at least two meals a day together. Mormor believed in the importance of gathering around the table all year round for any occasion, not just the holidays or formal dinners.

The table wasn’t only for meals, it was where my Mormor would sit and work on sewing or craft projects. Where we’d all work on giant jigsaw puzzles. It served as my desktop for what seemed like endless hours of homework. At times - in my imagination - it served as a formal tea table in Marie Antoinette’s salon.

Today, in my home in Kingston, New York, my table is the center of my life. My fiance James and I entertain friends often. We share quiet breakfasts with our dogs at our feet and festive and vibrant themed dinner parties. And... quite honestly, I’m sitting at my table right now as I write this love letter about my favorite gather place just for you.

Vermont Farm Table owners, Dustin and Jess, set out to design a dining table that was simple, functional, beautiful, and would stand the test of time—from holiday dinners to homework snacks and everything in between. The new Ready Made line continues Vermont Farm Table’s tradition of quality and craftsmanship with two new table designs available in responsibly-sourced ash, walnut or reclaimed pine that are ready to ship same day. Starting at $995.
