The Catan Table is designed to hold your Settlers of Catan game in place (it doesn’t contain an inlaid game, such as a Chess table might).
The table comes in oak or birch. Distribution is initially limited to the US. I’m supposed to get the price list tomorrow.
Update: The Birch and Colored Tables will retail around $380. The Oak Tables will retail around $460.
This table series handles the 5-6 player expansion and Cities and Knights Expansion.
As seen on the website, the table will come with a cover which connects to the table by magnets built into the underside of the cover and on the table top itself. The table top then can be used for card games, etc.

I really don’t understand these tables (I’ve seen other variants) because they don’t account for expansions (5-6 players, etc).
Seems like a dumb idea to buy something so specialized.
You mean like a $400 hand painted resin set in a wooden treasure chest?
the website for these says specifically it handles the 5-6 player extension, along with cities and knights…
In fact, you’ll notice that the photo is at least a 5-player game.
What about Seafarers? That’s a much more popular expansion in my house than Cities & Knights…
Is there a travel sized table that can play the 5-6 extension?
