The Colonnade offers the almost industrial look of a modern artifact, a studio-made form inspired by a period silver table stripped of any non-essential pretense or polish. The subtle dignity of the form emerges. The shelves are hand planed and wire brushed for a rugged patina. The steel frame and columns have the weathered Kettle finish of an object once more valuable for its function than its form.
Equally rustic and modern, a design of this kind can be used in a variety of settings. It alludes to a sense of history, if not mystery, but it demands nothing. It neither embellishes, nor detracts, nor matches. Ideal for a loft or a casual environment. Designed to accompany a full size sofa.
