I have bought a new Nain 9La to have under my Dining table. However, the table is pretty heavy (whole wood / oak ) - I would say at least 60Kg or more. I am a bit nervous that the table is too heavy, and that I risk to wear down the carpet due to the weight.

Any ideas to solve the problem? Or, is it a problem? The surface of the wooden pilars are neither too big or small, abut 3x10 cm.

Kind regards,

The weight should not be a problem.

When you think about it a human weighs more than that, so the weight should not be a problem. However, as long as the feet of the table are not pointed, otherwise you are applying a lot of weight to one point and you will need to put casters under the leg to spread the weight.
