Initial Concept

Australian-designed, Scandinavian-inspired, artisan crafted - and all from sustainable American forests. Made from high-quality American oak or walnut, the initial concept of the Magnus Oval Dining Table was a beautiful, generational piece of furniture in the style of Scandi furniture but designed and crafted to make a house a home and built to last. 

Additionally, the Magnus Oval Dining Table was designed to fit into the Icon By Design furniture family which includes dining tables, coffee tables, a media unit, and dining chairs - either solid oak, walnut or with plush fabric seats in a range of colours to suit any decor. 

Sourcing of Materials

We work hard to ensure that we’re always producing sustainable furniture. For example, the solid American oak and walnut which makes up the bulk of the Magnus Oval Dining Table is sourced from American forests which embrace sustainable principles - meaning the timber is sustainably harvested, works to restore the ecosystem, implements a replaning process, undertakes consistent environmental monitoring, and respects the land rights of indigenous peoples.

What to Furnish With?

There is much variation in American Oak and Walnut colours, depending upon the forest it is sourced from and the cut of timber used. It is a versatile timber, with natural variations that can't be helped, but should work in with any other American Oak and Walnut items very nicely. The Magnus Oval Dining Table can be furnished with the Jorgen Sideboard and Astrid Solid Oak Dining Chairs.

Introduction to Icon By Design

At Icon By Design, we don’t think we should spend our brief time on earth making disposable things. So we build our furniture to last a long time, with a focus on natural, sustainable materials and craftsmanship. And we design our furniture to be minimal, elegant and timeless. Because we believe if you build a piece of furniture that is timeless, the moments that happen around it will be timeless as well.

The furniture will hold an emotional value, above and beyond the dollar value. We’re not just making furniture, we’re making conversations and moments. We’re making our relationships richer. We’re making our moments more memorable. It’s not a table, it’s Boxing Day 2021. It’s not a media shelf, it’s ‘Kind of Blue’ on a winter’s night. It’s not a chair, it’s the way your daughter sits when studying. Icon By Design isn’t simply a place where quality furniture is created. It’s where stories are made.
