The award-winning John table – designed by Patty Johnson – still manages to wow

The John table, designed by Patty Johnson for Speke Klein, has turned 10 – and remains as popular as ever.

As the weather gets chilly and frost touches the ground, thoughts turn to comfort food and warm gatherings around a table with family and friends.

John’s gently tapering legs add a touch of classicism to its sleek modern shape and the unique detail of the folded tabletop ends, mimicking a tablecloth, adds to its beauty.

John’s frame is of solid hardwood, and the top panel is crafted from carefully jointed wood veneer. The table is available in black walnut and white oak, and the dimensions can be customized to suit the space.


Today, Speke Klein is a team of dedicated furniture makers crafting timeless designs from North American hardwoods that are intended to last for generations. Each item in the Speke Klein collection is developed and built around the principles that first brought the partners together; a distinctly modern approach to design, and an attention to details, materials, craftsmanship and technique.

The company is pleased to offer its showrooms and customers a continually evolving furniture collection comprised of its own designs as well as the work of international designers. Its award-winning collection has been featured widely in the international press, and exhibited in the U.K. and U.S. as well as in Canada.
