This attractive Chippendale coffee table manufactured by AKD Furniture is constructed in solid mahogany and measures just under 4′ wide by 1’10” deep (120cm x 55cm). It stands just shy of 18″ (45cm) from the ground being just about the perfect height for a coffee table.
The perfect coffee table for the traditional home but would be equally fantastic in a more contemporary setting as a focal point.
The high quality and crisp carving is done in our AKD Furnitures dedicated factory and features the famous cabriole legs finishing in ball and claw feet. The top of each curved leg is carved with vine leaf detail. There is a shaped skirt or plinth between the legs and in the centre there is some more detailed floral carving. Above this skirt are two rows of rope carving which extended all the way around the top of the coffee table. These two rows of rope carving which is sometimes known as ‘pie crust’ carving, are separated by a plain stretch of mahogany. The top is finished to a wonderful satin sheen and over the years this finish will improve in its richness of depth by the application of suitable, quality furniture waxes.
