Rustic Lodge Dining Table
The owner of a large hunting and fishing empire wanted something fantastic and grand for his penthouse. Well, when you want fantastic furnishings, look to royal history. The inspiration for this table came from Peleș Castle a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, in Prahova County, Romania. A castle that was built as a royal hunting preserve in the Carpathian Mountains. The castle contains a massive dining table set and this was the starting point for our customer’s table. Because this customer is very involved in the outdoors, our designers worked very closely with his designer to customize the table and chairs to reflect him and the location where it would eventually reside. We only use solid timber, no laminates or veneers, which imparts a natural glow to the table that is accentuated with our hand applied finishes. Continuing with the rustic theme, the chair backs included master hand carvings and some color staines of wildlife and genuine hair on cowhide as the upholstery.
Making a dining table and chairs to seat 20 is a large task, but Scottsdale Art Factory is up to the challenge. The most challenging part of this customer’s creation was how to build it so it would retain its beauty and functionality while also being able to get it into the penthouse. How can you fit a table that large into an elevator? We came up with a solution: build it in three parts that will be able to fit into an elevator and be reassembled in the space. We wanted to help this customer realize his dream of a grand and royalty worthy dining table and so our design department came up with a solution to the logistics problem facing the customer. We want to devote our time to you as well. No matter how big or small your project is or what installation issues you may think you will have, Scottsdale Art Factory is ready to help you realize your dreams.
