Entertaining with Antiques: The Versatile Gateleg Table

Antique French EngravingAutumn has arrived! And with it comes many wonderful opportunities to entertain with friends & family. The antique gateleg table is a perfect versatile addition to any home this time of year. Use them in your kitchen, living room, or just about anywhere as extra serving space and as dining tables for authentic European country style. Smaller gateleg tables make perfect side tables for lamps to cozy up with a good book or for kids tables around the holidays. Keep one folded behind your sofa for a unique sofa table that is easy to convert into a serving piece for appetizers. They even serve as charming, rustic entry way consoles in between entertaining!

Create a centerpiece that will impress your guests.  The captivating focal point of your table is a very important element.  Many centerpieces I design this time of the year are inspired by the vibrant fall colors of nature ~ some are intricate and complex; others are compositions that are simple, yet impressive. The abundant color palette of amber mixed with the antique patina and time worn elements of earthenware confit pots, dough bowls and copper pieces, can enhance the rustic appeal of such settings.

The classics never go out of style, and each era, country, and even artisan's interpretations create an environment that is always full of surprises.

It is truly a pleasure to bring such timeless style together for every client and follower of my blog. And of course, your input is always welcome!
