Biedermeier Pedestal Table
This round salon-style pedestal table from the Biedermeier Period certainly makes an impression. With almost prescient design features, including a star-shaped pedestal and a voluminous fluted central column that invoke the traits of the much-later Art Deco style, this piece is a showstopping centerpiece for any room.
This Biedermeier table is an exemplar of its period. At the turn of the 19th century, when European society began a radical transformation with the Industrial Revolution, a middle-class with artisan tastes began to emerge. Biedermeier is the style of that moment, a rejection of the lavish Baroque, and later Neoclassicism, of the 18th century. Its primary philosophy is to showcase the quality of its materials.
The top of the table features a breathtaking walnut wood veneer, full of natural swirls and engaging geometry. The column and base are finished with both walnut and maple wood, lending a definitive complexity to the already unique column and base.
There is even more to this table than a first glance would suggest, however. There is a well-preserved original folding mechanism in the table, for instance, that allows the whole plate to swing down horizontally. It’s a convenient way to clear space in the center of a room for a large gathering.
Every way you fold it, this table is a standout from a catalog of high-quality Biedermeier pieces.
