The latest edition of the April 2013, Veranda Magazine (my personal favorite of all the interior design publications) has an article on ‘Farm Tables’ and how they add charm and character to any home. Modern or Traditional.
This isn’t something new to us, or to them for that matter. Veranda’s always featuring French Antiques in their wonderful interiors. So it’s little surprise that ‘farm tables’ are a subject for discussion.
I’ve clipped some excerpts from the article and included some scans from the pages themselves. I’ve also included photographs of some of the tables available at The Antique Warehouse. All imported from either England or France.
“Introduce a farm table to a room and the space is immediately friendlier, happier, cozier”
We couldn’t agree more. They go on to say:
“No other piece of furniture conjures atmosphere quite like it. Can’t you just see the lingering dinner parties, the little heads hunched over homework, the big bowls of rising dough?.
No other piece is quite as adaptable, either. It softens the modern, leavens the traditional and cuts the frills from the feminines, all while wearing its use extremely well. Nicks, bangs, cuts and scratches on make farm tables look better. What’s not to love about that?”
Nothing!. We love Farm tables, and currently have an interesting selection the Antique Warehouse. The nice thing about ‘antique’ tables is the patina. Patina, (color, richness, and wear) can never be reproduced in a reproduction. We know because we’re always on the hunt for that perfect reproduction. We have seen them all, From the best of the best in Europe to locally produced ones.
It would be so much easier to order a farm table because their scarcity has become a reality ( we only found one on our last trip ) and their price has become prohibitive.
But as we wish to retain our integrity, we’ll stick to the ‘real thing’. We found our clients prefer that we do too.
