In the 17th century, comfortable furniture was a privilege reserved for the nobility. This oak dining table comes from the Château de Turenne in Corrèze. While household staff dined standing at a high serving table, the masters of the house and their guests could comfortably sit around this well-proportioned table. It stands on four subtly turned legs, typical of Louis XIII style, with a narrow apron allowing legs to slide underneath effortlessly. There are two drawers at each end for storing dishes and pewter cutlery. A rare feature is the suspended central leg, supporting the stretcher to prevent it from bending under the weight of the diners’ feet. This oak table is noteworthy for retaining its original patina.
