Followers of this website and workshop should really get out more, but will remember “The Million Dollar Table.” Made in Macassar Ebony and detailed in solid silver, it was designed to sit on a marble floor, back lit by full length french windows and visible from the large entrance hall of my client’s home. “I want it to look like a million dollars,” said Colin, hence the name of the table. But it’s one I now want to change. Why, because we have now finished the chairs to go with it and delivered them, eight pale yellow leather covered chairs that fit around the table opening out like the petals of a flower a Sunflower. Soooooo….. “The Sunflower Table”
