Classical Gathering

This cocktail table is veneered in hand selected, rich red flame mahogany, which speaks to the quality and intricacy of Louis XVI furniture. Classical elements, such as the dozen Corinthian columns and vase decorations on the delicately hand-hammered repousssé panels conjure up the splendour of the court style under Louis XVI.

The Louis XVI style focussed more on classicism and symmetry. Although original Louis XVI tables would have used gilt brass or ormolu, we have used the more subtle tones of softly patinated brass. Note the crossbanded and flame mahogany shelf that acts as an undertier.
