Reed's pedestal tables are a clean, contemporary design with great visual mass ideal for craftsman décor or modern homes. Its shape calls to mind both ancient architecture and prehistoric megaliths, interpreted through a modern craftsman's eye.
Each table is constructed from brass sheet, patinaed, and bolted together, in the technique we use for wallpieces. Including the top, the standard size is about 23" high - ideal as a sofa end table. The glass top is 15" square, and the base tapers from 13" to 10".
This color combination, "Red Spot," remains my most popular style. It consists of black outsides, silver-grey outsides, and an inset top in heat treated red copper - a highly variable patina created by heating pure copper sheet till it glows while keeping the air off it. All of our patinas are hand work, and therefore somewhat variable, but the red copper is much more unpredictable. This table is not recommended for use outdoors.
I can make this design in a wide range of sizes, up to a maximum of 40 or 43 inches tall (36" to 40" with 15" square glass tops cost $4200-$4500). The proportions are changed subtly as it is scaled up. I also create low oblong tables for use as coffee tables in smaller spaces. Contact me for more information on creating a table for your space, either in this patina combination or using our other patinas.
All tables are made upon order. Standard sizes usually take 2-3 weeks. Larger or unusual ones will take longer.
