The table features an extraordinary wood surface – made from the salvaged longleaf pine of an 1882 warehouse at 31 Leonard Street in Lower Manhattan. Its clean lines, and tapered metal legs are a simple, versatile design that adapts to a range of spaces – modern, traditional or eclectic. Each table, with its variation in color, grain, hairline checks, knots and the occasional nail hole – is truly one-of-a-kind. With documented research of both its historical site and tree rings – yielding the age of the tree (when it was felled) and potentially, its forest origins – the table carries unprecedented provenance – a backstory that can spark the imagination in new ways over time.
Old growth Woods
The table is made from durable antique grade lumber, documented from 31 Leonard Street in lower Manhattan. The beauty and character of the wood is expressed in its surface checks, aged surfaces, knots and tonal variations as well as the occasional nail hole and saw mark.
These legs and table straps by Kit&co. unite modern form with an old growth wood surface. Easy to assemble – it goes together with only a Phillips head screw driver – and background music – in a few minutes. The pieces are laser cut from 11 gauge steel, and then powder coated.
