A Coffee Table for a Casual Setting
Thank you to Bunny Williams and House Beautiful for the mention in February's issue. Bunny's work continues to inspire us to see new ways to incorporate antiques and other interesting objects into homes that are comfortable, interesting, and fun. One of our 19th Century Indian low tables makes the perfect coffee table in an East Hampton barn which Bunny transforms into "a cozy English country house" as described and pictured in Work a Room. We've sold a number of these tables over the years and currently have three in stock. They solve that hard-to-crack problem of what to use for a coffee table in a casual setting. We've placed these tables in beach homes, mountain getaways, and English country houses. Made of very dense acacia wood and raised on very thick turned legs, these tables are strong enough to dance on (if you're so inclined). The beautiful timber and use of iron details, including massive nails, lends a rustic charm to these very useful tables.
