pedestal dining room tablePictured is a single pedestal round Regency dining table we are finishing up at our studio.  One of the principal elements of Regency furniture is the combination of touches of exotic ornamentation with classical motifs.  Many of the design motifs in Regency furniture were influenced by ornamentation prevalent in France, Belgium and England. Regency furniture is known for combining modulated curves with straight lines. Thomas Hope, perhaps Regency’s most famous furniture designer, incorporated exotic details in his furniture including animal heads and paws, sphinx shaped supports and carytids.  This solid mahogany dining table features hand carved acanthus leaves, rosettes on the feet, and a diamond shaped pattern almost representing a pineapple.  If you are looking for a dining table in the Regency style, there are several variations in this design style with varying leg widths, brass feet and alternate base carvings.
