Antique Elm Side Table
Shanxi, circa 1880
This simple, rustic looking table is in a classic Chinese design that dates back centuries. The rounded legs are supported by double stretchers at the sides and a single long stretcher to the front and back and fit directly into the thick plank table top. Simple carved spandrels at the top of each leg add minimal decoration to an otherwise quite stark style. Originally the table would have been finished in a dark brown lacquer and traces of this are still in place, but the table top in particular has worn to the natural elm wood, with a gorgeous, tactile feel and character. Great as a little console, the table is narrow enough to fit easily into most spaces.
