ABOUT

This is a gorgeous oval dining table! It is from Drexel one of the best-known names in high quality furniture. It is done in a rather Asian Ming styling with a faux bamboo look to the legs and edge of the top. This faux bamboo is finished very dark brown almost black…maybe ebonized. And the top itself is a beautiful medium wood tone and has an inlaid starburst pattern to it when it is its smallest version.  The leaves have the inlaid veneer going across the width of each leaf so when they are inserted there is a lovely pattern created. The leaves do both have aprons so when they are used the table looks complete. It can expand from 50 inches to 70 inches with one leaf and 90 with two. The whole is simply stunning.

Drexel Furniture Company was founded in 1903 in Drexel, North Carolina by six businessmen for a total investment of $14,000.00. Sam Huffman, one of the initial founders, managed the enterprise until his death in 1935 when his son, Robert O. Huffman took the helm. By 1950 under the younger Huffman’s leadership Drexel had grown from a small factory to a leader in furniture manufacturing. They acquired other furniture companies along the way and by the late 1950s employed 2300 workers. The 1960s had them adding industrial and hospitality furniture to their lines. In 1968 they were purchased again, and Drexel Enterprises became Drexel Heritage Furnishings, Inc. They continued to add to their styles and lines and were sold again and then in 1986 became part of Masco Corporation one of the country’s largest furniture manufacturers. They are now based in High Point, NC and operate ten factories in North Carolina and one in South Carolina and are one of the leading furniture manufacturers in the world.

This table would look fabulous with many design styles from mid-century modern to traditional. We love how handsome and versatile it is. We know you will too. Make it yours!
