ebonized oak, copper base, painted inserts
One of the points of discussion which often comes up when building a table for a client is whether or not the legs will interfere with the chairs. This table base addresses this issue perfectly and so it has been a very successful design. I’ve produced it in many finishes including brass, chrome and blackened steel but this was the first one in copper. It really pops under the blackened oak top which was brushed and finished in a matte lacquer to accentuate the grain. I had also been longing for an opportunity to use red and copper together so two of the inserts in the column are painted black and two are red, all are interchangeable and can be customized to suit.
