Kang Style Coffee Table, Warm Elm, Clearance Item
Low level tables and other furniture were used throughout northern China, where they would be placed on the 'kang' - a heated platform of brick or earth that formed the main living area, and used to serve tea and other refreshments. Our warm elm model is an updated version in the same style as the original kang tables, but made slightly larger to be more practical as a modern day coffee table. It shows a number of classic features of Chinese tables through the centuries, including the 'horse hoof' style feet, 'waisted' top and the 'S' shaped stretchers between the legs.
Note that the table is a slightly darker colour to normal and is discounted due to some minor damage to the corners which has been repaired. The item in the photo is not the actual piece on sale. Please contact us if you would like photos of the actual piece or any further information.
