Custom ‘Deco Era’ Coffee Table

Art Deco Furniture: The ‘Deco Era’ Table

The original ‘Deco Era’ style table I made was at the request of a customer, and based upon an old photo of a coffee table from the 30’s or 40’s. After designing the table from the photos, I crafted it from solid maple, distressed the piece & painted it in satin black enamel to give it the feel of an original vintage heirloom table.

I recently received a custom order for a table in the same style. Instead of the long & narrow coffee table, this was a 36″ by 36″ square design. I have to say that it allows more room to appreciate the accents & details of the design. This table was also crafted from solid maple & finished in satin black enamel to match the client’s living room suite.

I have been wanting to make this table in solid Black Walnut because I think it would look absolutely breathtaking, especially in the larger square size, or as square end tables along with a set. The detailed rails really lend themselves to the square design in this particular instance.

Here is the ETSY link for the newest incarnation of this table!

This is a made to order solid wood side or end table made from solid black walnut with a hand rubbed tung oil finish which allows the wood’s natural color and grain figure to show through. Like all of my pieces, it is individually handmade from locally grown hardwood and built to the highest standards using traditional techniques and joinery.  This table features mortise and tenon construction; a subtle, graceful original design.
