Taking inspiration from the interlocking D’s that form the Davidson monogram, the Rivington Dining Table is a dazzling demonstration of the energetic potential of 21st century design.
With a potent duo of bespoke finishes - satin sycamore silk and high-gloss sycamore black - and offset by brushed brass metalwork, the Rivington reveals an exciting new direction for DAVIDSON design.
Radiating a relaxed poise, the Rivington is a statement dining table unashamedly contemporary in its outlook. Influenced by the crisp glamour of the luxury yacht aesthetic, its streamlined profile and highly-polished black-white pairing has a hint of the nautical.
Inspiration for the Rivington also comes from the two-tone tradition of contemporary artists, notably Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion. Combining two powerful shades in this boldly binary way expresses a confident minimalism and ultra-modern character.
In our bid to provide the very best in exceptional design, our design team is constantly experimenting with new approaches and testing existing limits. Here we find the application of a new veneer as well as a new technique for manufacturing the clean underside of dining tables creating a beautifully smooth finish from every angle.
Both versatile and distinct, the Rivington represents a truly contemporary update on the classic dining table. Whether it’s an exclusive dinner party or a laid-back family meal, the Rivington showcases DAVIDSON’s imaginative engagement with modern-day design.
The finishes chosen for the dining table are a combination of the much-loved with the innovative and new. While the pedestals are finished in our best-selling high gloss sycamore black, a new satin sycamore silk has been chosen for the top. Black and white, an iconic coupling, find itself reinvented and revitalised in the Rivington.
All our designs can be customised and the Rivington can be finished in any of our standard finishes. The top can be created with a lacquer, liquid metal or resin finish, as can the pedestals. The latter can also be made with a gilded, vellum or leather finish. Meanwhile, the metal detailing can be chosen from any of our standard metal finishes.
The smooth and curved convex frieze evokes the feel of a slimline top. It is enhanced by the antiqued brushed brass protruding trim which follows the edge of the table top.
The three pedestals are an unexpected and unique almond shape, an intriguing design choice that is amplified by the brushed brass trim inlaid that runs down the edge of each base.
Set at angles, the pedestals can be positioned in any combination of ways to allow for a variety of seating positions. This means the table can be created according to any set of dimensions without its stability being compromised.
Clean lines meet sturdy confidence in the Rivington, whose form was inspired by the interlocking D’s of the DAVIDSON monogram. The interlocking letters reflect DAVIDSON’s commitment to establishing productive, creative, and meaningful relationships with clients as well as the family nature of the business.
DAVIDSON offers a bespoke service and the Rivington’s design can be adapted according to the client’s needs. This means anything from 1600mm L x 1000mm W - 3500mm L x 1500mm W. There is also the option for additional pedestals and jointed tops as well.
The Rivington typically takes 12 to 14 weeks to make, although a bespoke design could take longer.
