Description

While antique oak tables with parquet tops are fairly common in France, it is rare   to find a such a table in walnut and even rarer to find it with its extensions intact and still paired with its six matching leather-upholstered chairs.  This set, dating most likely from the early 20th century, reflects the stylistic motifs and construction of earlier eras including the transition from Louis XIII to Louis XIV.  The table features a solid parquet top for both the central section and the extensions at either end.  The table’s origins in Provence are reflected in the whimsical flower carvings on the four legs of the table as well as the circular and diamond patterns on the chairs.   Both the table and the chairs have graceful, rounded ballustres or turnings.  The chairs have recently been re-upholstered in leather, faithful to their original look.   They are reminiscent of chairs on display at the Fondation Angladon in Avignon.

Uses

Sufficiently elegant to fill a formal dining room or casual enough for a country-style kitchen, the table extends to 105 inches and can seat as many as 12 people (although only six chairs are included).
