This is the expandable Capstan Table from the UK furniture maker Fletcher and it will make you question if magic is real. The round tables come in four standard sizes, and expand by simply rotating the top 180 degrees manually or electronically by remote.

Why We Love It: This is one of the most innovative tables we’ve ever seen. The Fletcher Capstan Table expands from a standard 6.5- or 10-foot table to one that measures anywhere between 20 to 30 feet across.

UK furniture brand Fletcher was inspired by a similar patent dating back to 1835, and the design features a star shaped leaf at the center with six pie-shaped leaves that expand and fit together seamlessly.

This unique and amazing table is capable of automatically doubling its seating capacity whilst remaining truly circular in the process. Expansion leaves are stored within the table and are self positioning as the table changes from one mode and appearance to an entirely different one. Operation, which can either be manual or electronic, is a sight to behold and extremely quick.

Every component used is of the highest quality and designed to last for generations. Tables are made for domestic or harsh marine situations, the quality and method of construction allowing for external positioning on the deck of a yacht.

Where To Buy: Through the Fletcher website, or email [email protected] to order.

Cost: Tables are customizable, and range from $50,000 to $70,000.
