Description

This whitewashed table was made near the Poitou region of western central France.  It is constructed of thick salvaged boards of oak, and has a top that is made of two large parquet sections that are separated by a straight beam. Parquet describes the placement of wood boards in such a manner that their outline forms a geometric mosaic. The technique was introduced during the 17th century.

The parquet sections on the table you see here, consist of a pair of diamonds, or lozenges.  The top sits upon a central, four-sided trestle leg pedestal and thick platform feet carved with inverted cyma recta molding.

Although recently produced in the 2000’s, this table has been made from pieces that are quite a bit older. At six feet long, this table is long enough to be used as a small dining table or breakfast table. It can also be used as a large sofa table or center table.  Its soft undulating surface and whitewashed oak make it an attractive and easy going table that can very comfortably sit 6 people.

CONDITION:  Very good condition.  Old traces of wood worm with a few age separations as seen in photos.
