Client Spotlight: Vintage French Games Table in Chateau

At the beginning of December we made a delivery of a vintage French games table to a gorgeous house in Georgia that has the look of a French chateau.

This is the vintage French games table that Nita and her husband Walter purchased.

The Regency style table set with four chairs was made in France in about 1960 and you can see that the round table has drawers to store your cards and dice. The gold design on the green leather top and the handsome matching tufted chairs make the set look especially debonair, as if it came from a chic casino in Paris or Cannes.

We made the delivery to Nita and Walter in their beautiful home in Augusta, GA. There are so many lovely details to the house, it really resembles a French chateau from the outside.

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the gorgeous courtyard that one encounters after entering the wrought iron gate:

The fountain that runs from the lion’s mouth on the brick wall had been turned off as we were starting to have evening temperatures that dropped below freezing.  What a lovely spot to enjoy coffee and croissants, or a bottle of wine at the end of the day!

Vintage Games table in room

We delivered the vintage French games table to a large living area at the rear of the home, off the large kitchen. The floor-to-ceiling fireplace crafted in natural stone is absolutely stunning in person. The vintage games table in mahogany has a beautiful green leather playing surface that pairs superbly with the four green leather upholstered chairs with a Mid-Century Modern look. The green leather is the perfect complement to the olive green in the large Oriental rug.

The ceilings were so high that I couldn’t quite catch them in the room view, but they are hand-planed wooden planks, framed by massive wooden support beams. The natural light pouring through the windows floods this cozy nook.

I don’t know how to play bridge, but this looks like an ideal spot for fun times spent with family and friends near a warm fire this winter season! Thank you Nita and Walter for letting us see inside your lovely home. We hope that the vintage French games table brings you many years of good fun and good luck!

Client Spotlight: Antique French Style Game Table

I loved seeing the photos our customer Marie-Regina S. in Mountainhome, PA sent of the antique French style game table she bought from us. We got a great glimpse into her beautifully decorated living room!
Woodbridge Game TableThis is the new Woodbridge game table that Marie-Regina chose from our range of vintage and antique-inspired game tables. The high-quality card table follows early 18th century French styling and it is crafted in solid wood with a cherry veneer.  The Woodbridge Furniture Company people are very clever with their distressing skills. The hand-rubbed finish gives an aged look that would fool a lot of people into thinking it was an original antique.

I can also imagine relaxing here with a good book or chatting with company. Notice how well Marie-Regina defines the conversation area with a large rug, while a separate rug defines the game table area.

The careful craftsmanship extends to the shapely and typically French stylized cabriole legs. When Marie-Regina sent the photos of the table, she added, “We love it!”

I can see why… and it pairs perfectly with those handsome wood windows. Personally, I love the upholstery on the chairs. There is so much to enjoy in this room, from the framed lattice design on the far wall to the French style sideboard and the elegant lighting. Marie-Regina has immaculate taste and I’m glad she invited us into her home so we could admire it. And now for a game of cards?

If you enjoy cards, chess, and other family games (even shuffleboard!) take a look at our selection of vintage and antique-inspired game tables. We try to select tables that are gorgeous pieces of furniture in themselves, as well as being fun for entertainment after a dinner party or during a family holiday. We hope you agree with us!
