Where Art Thou Custom Breakfast Table?!
Every Thursday, interior designer Sally Henninger shares her thoughts on design, furniture and the custom made world.
Am I the only one left completely in love with breakfast tables?!
Think Sunday morning, the New York Times, and a cup of fresh squeezed orange juice next to a window with sunlight streaming in. I am loving this Sheraton style mahogany breakfast table by William Thomas, Cabinetmaker – stunning inlay and workmanship and I love the castors. This piece is sure to be in the family for years, passed down from generation to generation. I can imagine around it a set of skirted, upholstered Parson chairs in a neutral fabric – comfortable and a nice contrast to the wood.
Another all time favorite of mine is a French farm table. This French provincial dining table by Tomlinson Fine Woodworking is amazing - I love the cherry wood. This table is an extremely durable classic that gets even better with wear. Customize the size to fit into your breakfast nook! I can imagine it with white lacquered bamboo chairs for an updated look.
