Bespoke Round Table, Wood Covered Leather, Brass Base by P. Tendercool

$5,240per item

About

We created this one-of-a-kind, round, leather top, game table for our opening night to showcase a Aurele Ricard's 'Lost Dog' exhibition. One of a kind Model: FTOP-PT11-BS1-Green leather top Top: wood top covered in green leather Base: Sand cast brass Base finish: Golden sand Dimensions: Round 85.5 x 74.5 cm (Diameter x Height) Round 33.66 x 29.33 inch P. Tendercool FTOPs – Fantastic Tables made with Old Planks Bespoke, hand-made tables made with reclaimed wood; sand-cast Bronze, Brass or Aluminum Bases LEATHER We hand-pick our leathers from local tanneries and do love a natural look. We chose hides which show 'traces of the beast': some necklines and marks remain visible. We buff the leather for a soft natural look and apply an oil finish: We like the traces of age and usage, and compare this to the look of horse-saddles, weathered belts or really great leather shoes, worn for years. Antique-dealers call this 'patina' and our chairs will become witnesses of decades-long use. It is up to you to apply some neutral saddle oil or cream to maintain your chairs. All this to mention we do not 'Plastic-coat' our leather. Our chairs, as our Tables, are never perfect, they look natural and will age with grace. RECLAIMED WOOD While P. Tendercool may not be greener than your average Martian, he does not kill trees! P. Tendercool, run by Belgians Pieter Compernol and Stephanie Grusenmeyer, is based in Bangkok, Thailand. We are ideally placed to go wood-hunting. Every month or so we organize a sourcing trip along 2nd and 3rd generation woodshops in remote villages, meeting locals who buy up abandoned houses, rice-barns and forgotten structures, often dating back 100 years. While Thailand has no wood industry left, it was spoiled for choice and quality in the good ol’days days: some of the best exotic tropical woods were available and it is our mission to score these and turn vintage floors, beams, and pillars into truly unique furniture. We buy our wood in very small quantities, often just enough for one table: truly reclaimed and truly unique furniture. UNIQUE ONE-OFF Every FTOP table we create is indeed unique, and this shows: we use traditional wood-working techniques to join massive beams and refrain from levelling the bottom of the table: we naturally sand to remove splinters but we want our clients to see we use genuinely old wood, not machine-made-to-look-to-be-reclaimed wood. The top-edges are the perfect witness, uneven, almost brutalist at times, but always unique and very touchy-feely. Bottoms and tops will more often than not show imperfections we cherish: traces of the past: old wooden pegs, old joinery, some restored holes, all signs of the woods previous life. We also refrain from using big belt-sanders, which means you will see and feel our hands when you check the surface. And re-check. Re-check... REAL WOOD, NO VENEERS Very few pieces of furniture are still being created with real high quality hardwood. While we take every precaution and carefully match humidity levels with international standards, we can never forego the fact that wood is a living, breathing material which will be influenced by excessive temperature and humidity fluctuations. There is always a chance that wood will retract or expand slightly with the changing of the seasons. Rest assured: to date we only received two remarks from worried client in eight years and in both cases, we advised how to remedy. COMBINE WITH P. Tendercool FTOPs, especially our PT2 and PT1 - table bases, match perfectly with our Chairs models: PT40, PT41, PT42, PT43, PT44, PT45, PT46 LEAD-TIME 12 WEEKS CONTACT US FOR AVAILABLE OPTIONS AND FINISHES GLOBAL SHIPPING We can generally offer a specific quote within 5 working days, (but depend on destination input for this). Forward your delivery address and indicate your preferred delivery means: Door-To-Port or Door-to-Door? Air-Shipping is not an option. Should you like to arrange your own shipping let us know and we will share crated dimensions and weight. CRATING Your treasures will safely arrive on your doorstep. Inquire about our crate-quote and relax: each creation is perfectly packed and crated in custom-made wooden crates, we will send photos during and after packing. We have been shipping worldwide since 2009 and never, ever, had any complaint nor claim, reason why we suggest our clients not to bother with insurance, but this, naturally, is your call. Just this: In our experience, as former antiques-dealers, insurance companies charge a premium and turn in Kafkaesque red-taped bureaucrats whenever a claim is filed... IMPORTANT NOTES WOOD FINISH We have yet to come across The Perfect Wood-Finish. Prior to establishing P. Tendercool in 2009 our family had been antique dealers for over 50 years. We know a thing or two about Old Wood. Eli, our antiques restorer from Belgium, flew over to train our Thai carpenters in traditional Western wood-finishing-techniques. While we can offer Wax, home-made Hot-Wax and are experts in true French Polishing, about 95% of our clients prefer an oil finish. Should you prefer a completely waterproof finish, you may opt for Water-based Polyurethane. All finishes have pros and cons, feel free to enquire for more detail. But fear not: no white gloves are needed to enjoy your furniture! Our furniture is meant to be used! Just use a bit of common sense: do not let spilled liquids sink in over-night, do not place hot pots and pans directly on the wood. Should you consider buying one of our creations we will explain the do's and don'ts in detail. SAND CAST BRONZE, BRASS and ALUMINUM We are wood-specialists. We outsource the casting of our metals to a true specialist: Armando is an Italian bronze-master who used to work for Salvador Dali way back when...Craft any-one? He moved his foundry from Monza, Italy, to Thailand now 30 years ago. His major client is the Vatican. We are truly blessed. He is currently training our team to ensure his vast experience will live on. Please note that the whole sand-casting process is also completely done by hand, step-by-step, for each base, a traditional and time consuming technique which, as the woodwork we offer, can never be 'Perfect." Our bases show traces of this technique: some air-bubbles remain in the metal, some weld-marks will be visible as will some tooling traces: brushed lines, some surfaces will be a bit more matte than others...Here too you will feel Real People's hands... PHOTOS We take great care when we photograph our creations or produce our samples, but computer monitors differ, colors may not be exactly rendered and all our furniture are created by hand, not by robots. Do check with us should you have any doubts. You are always welcome to pay us a visit; both our gallery and workshop are open to the public. Unfortunately, no photo can ever capture the look and feel of the real deal.
