The Thursday Three- Coat hooks, plinth, coffee table;Patère crochets, socle, table basse

coffee tableWhat attracted me to this table?

the shape, the weight, the solidity, the shelf, the carving detail, the legs. Classic scallop shell motif and canné (split cane ) shelf

Found in UK but feels French to me.

Wait and see what I do with this!!

carved table

 

 

Then we have this old oak barley twist plant stand, or plinth (socle) for a sculpture  (my use here in France ) Will not be painted, I will have a mix of polished wood and painted pieces at the house. This is how it would be and should be

plants stand plinth

And my metal patère crochets (coat hooks) for cloaks cupboard in hall; from maisonsdumonde

    I adore that table – the woven shelf gives it, you rightly say, a very French feel. The plinth is to die for and the hooks should never have anything hung on them lest they can’t be seen 😉

    The plinth is not just beautiful but sensuously so…I can’t believe the turning was done by a machine…what a fantastic find. Must give you pleasure just to look at it…(taking time from something else…)
