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: Vintage Renaissance Dining Table

We just delivered a massive vintage Renaissance dining table to Crystal B. in Harlem, Georgia. Crystal found us on Ebay and let us know that she had been searching for the perfect table for her large, open kitchen for the past 4 years! It’s a charming kitchen so let’s take a look at the table and its new home..

1950 Vintage Renaissance Dining TableThis is the large Renaissance style vintage French dining table Crystal bought from our selection of new, vintage and antique dining tables. It was crafted circa 1950 with a beautiful golden parquet top and an ornate wrought iron stretcher that adds to the Renaissance feel.

Vintage Renaissance Table in Dining Room

Here’s the vintage Renaissance table in Crystal’s kitchen. We’re glad we were able to help her find the perfect piece to complement her décor! Take a look at the beautiful window treatments, which Crystal made herself — freehand! — and notice how the black, green and mauve fabric ties it all together. And what a gorgeous view this handsome vintage Renaissance table with its massive carved legs will enjoy through the three large, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows! It is hard to tell in the photograph, but in person we could see that the leaves were beginning to show the full range of vibrant autumn colors – reds, yellows and oranges.

Vintage Renaissance Table and iron pot rack

The black wrought iron stretcher under the vintage table ties in with this stunning black wrought iron pot rack over Crystal’s island.  This traditional kitchen is packed with “welcome home” appeal, combining handsome looks with warm comfort. What a lovely spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and perhaps a hearty bowl of oatmeal for breakfast!

Thank you Crystal for giving us a glimpse into your home. We agree that you DID find the perfect table at last and we hope you enjoy it for many years!
