The inspiration for our Venticello coffee table began with an antique stained glass transom window that was removed from a 1920’s early American designed home in Detroit that was scheduled for demolition. Once the removal of the art glass from its original window framing was complete, the glass was meticulously cleaned and reinforced for durability. The challenge for this particular piece was marrying the art glass to the correct wood type, leg design and stain color, being cognizant to enhance the beauty of the glass without upstaging the art glass itself. We choose solid maple for the construction of the table surround and legs. Then to finish the table and pull all the design elements together we choose a fruitwood stain to complement the colors of the glass and add to the feel of the early American style. This table was then back lit to enhance the colors and the design of this art glass. The lighting is hidden from view and includes is dimmer control and rechargeable battery pack to allow placement anywhere in the room or can be plugged directly into a wall outlet. A piece of protective tempered glass is added to the top to protect the art glass underneath. Venticello, an Italian name, which means breeze, is a perfect name or this coffee table because of the carefree flow of the glass design. This tables measures 25" wide x 51" long x 17-1/2" high.
TRANQUILITA (tranquility) is a contemporary coffee table constructed of cherry with a faux finish. The finish is created with a troweled and brushed plaster base, glazed and then sealed with a wax sealer. Little flecks of brown can be seen in the finish, which was created in the troweling process from the shells of almonds. This stained glass was a transom window salvaged from a 1900 Cincinnati mansion. The legs are made of cherry and were designed to emulate the trellis in the design of the glass. Opalescent glass is used to create this beautiful and tranquil, blossom scene. This tables measures 24" wide x 47" long x 18" high. Added beauty is given to the glass by the addition of LED lighting with an on/off dimmer switch that is cleverly hidden on the underside of the table. An optional rechargeable battery pack can be used in place of the wall plug.
FRUTTA (fruit) is a lovely coffee table that is constructed of walnut and finished in a rich English chestnut stain. The stained glass window was salvaged from an early 1900's Cincinnati mansion. It was one of two in a sash window but unfortunately the twin was damaged beyond repair. This fruit and swag is accentuated by the beautiful opalescent glass in its geometric design. The spindle legs were reclaimed from a staircase in the same mansion and were used to create this wonderful table.
This tables measures 27" wide x 37" long x 19" high. Added beauty is given to the glass by the addition of LED lighting with an on/off dimmer switch that is cleverly hidden on the underside of the table. An optional battery pack with 9 hours of power can be used in place of wall plug.
The inspiration for our coffee table Volo began with an antique stained glass transom window that was removed from an early 1900’s home in Cincinnati. Once the delicate art glass was carefully disassembled from it’s original framing it was meticulously cleaned, reinforced and prepared for rebirth. Our next challenge was choosing table legs. We selected unique antique bench seat legs made of wrought iron. Adorned with two elegant birds with their plumes embellishing each leg we envisioned them as the perfect compliment to this art glass. Having chosen a rich Iron Gray paint the legs were ready for their new life. To combine all these elements we designed a table frame in solid red oak and finished in a lovely Tuscan Gray stain with multiple lacquer coats to insure lasting durability.
A piece of protective tempered glass was added to the top to protect the glass underneath. This table is back lit to enhance the colors and the intricate design of this art glass. The lighting is hidden from view and includes is dimmer control and rechargeable battery pack to allow placement anywhere in the room. This table stunningly repurposes the art glass while preserving its unique beauty and history with superior craftsmanship and stylish elements. Volo, the word for flight is a perfect name for this coffee table. This tables measures 18" wide x 54" long x 17" high (22"h to the top of the handles).
A coffee table, also called a cocktail table were a late development in the history of furniture. Originally used to set drinks on which included tea and coffee, it was a center-piece for socializing with others. These tables are usually long and low and designed to be placed in front of a sofa, to support beverages, magazines, books, decorative objects, and other small items to be used while sitting, such as beverage coasters.
Although coffee tables have a functional purpose, they are also used to provide accent to the room they are used and displayed in.
