Rustic European Solid Wood Table, Europe ca 1940s

$ 3,135
  • Description
    What was once a drinking trough for animals, is reimagined as a decorative item that can be placed in an interior in need of a rustic touch. This console table is a charming piece with an organic edge.

    In most mid-century European design, there was an early emphasis on wood as it connected everyday objects, such as furniture to nature. This rustic, solid wood table is a perfect example of this sentiment, and the visual benefits of an understated, organic design. In the case of designs like this table, the Japanese concept of wabi sabi is often brought up. Rooted in Zen Buddhism, wabi sabi emphasizes a perverse beauty in the deliberate imperfection. Wabi refers to the kind of beauty found in the asymmetrical, uneven edges and surfaces seen in the case of this table, sabi is for example the lovely patina of the wood. The tabletop has “wings” on both sides that resemble a trough that enhances the rustic look. At the same time, this feature has a functional perk as well, as items placed on it are more secured from falling off. The top is supported by a pair of trestle legs with similarly uneven, rough edges. The cracks elevate the rustic look, while the height perfectly balances out the thickness of the wood.

    In rustic pieces, the wood is not overworked, its raw surface and edges are kept to show off the beautiful grain and texture. This is especially eye-catching on the long tabletop. Thanks to the peculiar shape, this table van be used in a variety of ways, including as a display console, or as a coffee table. Its organic charm is sure to stand out in any space.

    In very good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. Some scratches and marks. The wood has a beautiful patina.
