Copper Platter turned Cocktail Table ~ Finished!
Remember the early 19th century Turkish copper platter I found and talked about here? To refresh your wandering minds, I designed a 54″ diameter cocktail table using the copper platter inset into the middle, and distressed, dark stained reclaimed wood for the base. The table was designed to be in an Arts and Crafts inspired home using the philosophy and principles of the A&C era but not necessarily using A&C furniture. The cocktail table is done, and actually the whole living room is almost done. One small detail is still in progress and it should be installed in the next couple of weeks. I’m so excited to show you the finished table!

Presenting ~~ the finished cocktail table! The table was made by Walt McHenry of the 4th Street Guild Furniture Makers in Minneapolis. Fabulous work, huh?

The tray is permanently secured into the cocktail table. That way, it doesn’t wobble or rattle, and if someone does put their feet up on it, it is secure from underneath since copper is a softer metal, and we most definitely do not want denting!
I am so excited and absolutely love it ~~ as does my client, which is the important part! The whole living room will be completed in a couple of weeks. More pics to come! Stay tuned!
