Greene And Greene Inspired Mahogany Table
Greene And Greene Inspired Mahogany Table.
Built mostly in a more elegant Arts & Crafts style popularized by Charles and Henry Greene in the early part of the 20th century, this is one of my favorite styles of architecture and furniture.
This piece was made for a local customer who wanted an extra long coffee table for in front of his windows in his living room.
The top is one solid piece of beautifully "ribbon striped" african mahogany nearly 17" wide. The pictures don't quite do it justice. Breadboard ends help keep the top flat. Gaboon Ebony plugs and splines contrast with the mahogany beautifully.
Finish is boiled linseed oil, shellac, and lacquer.
