The tabletop balances gracefully upon a solid wood pedestal base that is carved by hand to form a curvaceous, barrel shaped silhouette. Constructed of solid Tulip Poplar by Italian artisans. A lovely, hand carved ridge detail encircles the tabletop and is repeated on the pedestal as well as the generous, medallion style base. The Cantina Bassano finish is achieved through hand distressing followed by the application of stain and a layer of hand rubbed wax. A number of Italian artisans are involved in this process; each invests more than eight hours into meticulously creating this rich patina on the tabletop alone. The entire piece is coated with a layer of polyurethane to impart a subtle sheen and protect the finish from deep scratches. Seats up to 6 chairs.
