Traditional Buffet Or Hall Table
The original that this closely echoes was from the 1750's and is a Hunt Table from South Carolina. Supposedly hunters could eat lunch from them while on their horses.
This was originally made as a Hall table to store keys and such in the centre drawers and winter clothing in the larger drawers. It has since been repurposed in the dining room as a serving buffet . The proportions are easily modified for different sized rooms and uses. There are often doors rather than drawers in the two larger end sections. The design can be dressed up with mahogany flame veneer and crossbanding or modernized with thinner legs, no inlay or cockbeading around the drawers.
