Another tenant in our old mill building was about to throw the table in the tip as one of the legs had completely broken off. Luckily, we were in our studio that day and knew the table was worth rescuing even if the the table top was also heavily battered, marked and stained.
Fortunately we knew the guys for the job and off to Kendal's Wynn Griffiths & Tarr it went for some extensive restoration.
Carbon rods have been inserted strengthening the leg, while the top has been fully stripped back, sanded and refinished. Be sure to view our stories on Instagram to see the before photographs. As to be expected, the table still features some surface scratching, dints and makings commensurate with age and use.
An absolutely stunning table that not only flutters the eyes but also invites one's touch, an irresistible design that is sure to please and delight every visitor into your home.
Measures approximately 100cm long, 60cm wide and 55cm tall.
