BEN-7022 Semi-Elliptical Sofa Table

Artist
Brian Benham
Description

One of a kind design by Colorado furniture maker Brian Benham using African Mahogany accented and embellished with gilded silver leaf for a contrasting table-top center. He then  applied a patina with sulfur potash to add a variety of contrasting colors and age the silver.  The silver leaf is sealed with numerous layers of polyurethane for protection.
 
The outer rim of the top is made up of segmented pieces of mahogany. Because of its semi-ellipitcal shape, each segment around the front of the table was cut a different length and angled to achieve the oval shape.

To continue the semi ellipse theme, the front of the legs is shaped as a semi ellipse as well that taper a smaller oval foot.  Legs were hand shaped with a spokeshave, and when attached to the table top; the back of the leg was carefully scribed to match the shape of the apron and top.   One of a kind and made with an eye for design.
