Breakfast of champions

A Regency mahogany pedestal breakfast table, the rectangular tilt-top having rounded corners, ebony stringing and a reeded edge, raised on a tapering vase shaped column to four square cut out swept supports with brass caps and casters.

A large Regency satinwood breakfast table, the brass banded edge inset with red leather, supported on a fluted column, concave platform and gilt wood and gesso carved paw feet, with fitted casters.

Just as all kitchens needn't be fitted kitchens, tables in the kitchen needn't always be kitchen tables.

So very true. And no breakfast tables are as beautiful as Regency versions.

I am getting ready to refinish a drop leaf table I think it will be a wonderful change.... I may do it in black!
