Architectural Column Tables.

am fond of Restoration Hardware's Spring 2010 collection of furniture. The furnishings are expertly made by artisans throughout the world. The Architectural Tables, from Timothy Oulton in London, are just beautiful. Each table is built from reclaimed pine, salvaged from 100-year-old buildings in Great Britain. These one of a kind pieces are planed and sanded but otherwise left unfinished. Nicks, nail marks and imperfections speak of the wood's age and provenance. The massive, hand-carved columns and thick planked tops of these tables gives them great strength of personality.
