Hardman Design is proud to unveil the Carolina collection, a contemporary range of handmade solid oak dining furniture which blends elegance with functionality.
Inspired by understated German design, this series comprises three new pieces along with the best-selling Carolina oak dining table.
A stylish smoked oak dining table, as well as a dining bench, and dining table-bench set - both available in wild oak or clear oak - are the new additions to this signature collection.
Designed with modern eating spaces in mind, all Carolina pieces feature a shadow gap to create the illusion of a floating top, creating a lightness and accentuating the delicately curved legs and sleek lines.
Yet, for all of the collection’s aesthetic qualities, the furniture is robust and hard-wearing, blending style with the rigours of 21st century living.
Handcrafted from sustainable and locally-sourced oak, the versatile Carolina series is available in a range of sizes. Each piece can also be custom made.
The Carolina collection is available to buy now.
Introducing The New Carolina Pieces
Smoked Oak Dining Table
The eye-catching smoked oak dining table is the jewel in the Carolina crown.
Handcrafted from Prime Grade wood to deliver a clean and immaculate finish, this bold statement piece is perfectly suited to contemporary spaces.
A special manufacturing process is used to fume the oak, circulating and permeating the wood. This causes a reaction with the tannin in the wood, causing it to darken; enhancing and drawing out the rich detail of the grain and creating a soothing, luxurious feel.
The table top has a half-gloss, half-matt finish, providing a subtle shine and adding depth to the piece, but it can be customised.
The smoked oak dining table can sit up to 6 people at its smallest, or up to 12 at its largest.

Modern Dining Bench
The Carolina collection began with the best-selling oak dining table, which is also available in clear oak.
Now, you can pair this signature table with the matching dining bench, or purchase the seat as a stand alone piece.
This new addition has all the hallmarks of the Carolina series, mixing functionality with understated elegance.
Handmade in-house, each bench has its own distinct look and is available in wild oak or clear oak.
The wild oak bench comprises unique knots and detailing throughout the wood’s surface. These knots are filled with a dark resin to ensure strength and stability while maintaining the wood’s natural beauty.
In contrast, the clear oak bench has very few knots and details.
Both pieces are finished with matt hard wax oil, but can be customised with a number of glossy or matt finishes.

Carolina Table And Bench Set
New to the Carolina range? Then the stylish dining table and bench set is the ideal combination.
Available in wild oak or clear oak, this pairing is suited to contemporary family living, matching minimalist style with uncompromising strength.
Typical of the Carolina range, the set comprises a stylish shadow gap to effortlessly raise the table and bench tops to create a natural movement and showcase the finely curved legs.
The tops of the table and bench are finished with a matt hard wax oil, but can be customised with a number of glossy or matt finishes for a bespoke look.
