Geoff Builds Expandable Dining Room Table

Posted on: June 11th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Geoff’s Latest Furniture Design:  Last week Geoffrey Warner Studio completed a large Dining Room Table. This stunning cherry table has a 54″ diameter and when the 3 leaves are inserted, the table expands to 90″.

This custom wooden table will seat 6 to 12.  Owl Chairs in cherry are also being made to accompany the table.   Here’s a brief video of Geoff finishing the table: http://youtu.be/Edr0p9mOV10

Inspiration for the  tables base stems from nature and the art nouveau design period from over 100 years ago. The sawn knees and legs are hand-shaped round and hard edged in order to reveal a graceful flow of form, enhanced by the play of  light and shadow.

These are details that Geoff has refined and grown fond of  over the years, and now refers to as part of his design vocabulary.

 

Do you have a furniture wish list?  Geoff is now accepting new commissions.

Looking Ahead….Mark your calendar for the first Stonington Galleries First Friday, July 5th. GW Studio will host a grand event with music…more details coming soon.

As always, thank you for your interest in our custom & Owl Furniture.

The Maine Home & Design Show will feature 150 exhibitors including 50+ artists.  The Maine Home+Design Show has constructed a 30,000 square foot clear span semi-permanent structure on the grounds of Camden Hills Regional High School in Rockport.  They promise that the experience will be like walking into the pages of their magazine.  Exhibitors will range from home furnishings to kitchen & bath to landscape & design.  Architects will be on hand to answer questions.  It should be quite a show!

See you in Rockport this weekend!
