This kitchen table from a farm in Cantal has precisely this country and mountain charm linked to its squat, comforting structure. Flanked by two drawers, it is perched on two solid straight legs. Its massive base rests on a cat bar, which is particularly high.
If one has a prehistoric look with these brown concretions that seem to emerge from the depths of time, the other wears, like armor, a beautiful green glaze that has pushed back all porosity. Both fulfilled in the farms of Cantal, the noble mission of saving the precious walnut oil, the only source of lighting in the 18th century. They are called mélards.
This Auvergne oak farmhouse table tells the story of the country where it was born. It is made of a very dense light oak due to the harsh climate of Cantal, where it has courageously grown.
