This table is based on my chandelier design. I’ve been wanting to create something using the same technique or shape as a skinny sideboard or hall table. I’ve gone through a couple of sketches quite awhile ago and revisited them recently. These elevations show the side and end view.
The main body is obviously pretty much exactly the same as the chandelier: curved slats with end posts holding it together. The end posts continue all the way to the floor, making them the legs of the table.
I had a pretty good ephiany which was to make the top out of glass, so that the full effect could be viewed from above. I like that idea, but am not sure of the shape of the top yet. I also recently thought of maybe doing glass panels with a narrow wooden frame for the top, as well as, I decided to get some carpets that combine with the table and create a wonderful atmosphere.
Now, if you’re a little puzzled about how this table is going to stand up, you should be. What’s missing is the bottom area – what’s going to actually support the table from tipping over. I haven’t decided yet how to “finish” the table off at the ground. I’ve played with larger feet / bases, curved feet and a bottom shelf connecting the two ends.
How would you do it?
