Here we have a fine looking 303cm (10 ft) Handmade Regency Style Twin Pillar Dining Table in burr walnut together with the matching set of 10 dining chairs.This dining table & chairs set is a bespoke contemporary Regency style dining set. It comprises a substantial and very attractive burr walnut twin pillar dining table capable of comfortably seating up to 10 people.
As this striking Regency dining table is made from one of the most naturally beautiful timbers, burr walnut, it would be unusual for it not to feature a highly attractive and beautifully grained top table surface. Here, it does not disappoint - this fine Regency style dining table has a surface that you just want to gaze at and lose yourself in its intricacy and beauty. The table top also features a very attractive crossbanded satinwood border.
Adjustable size to suit the occasionThis is a table that can serve many purposes due to its variable size. From an intimate dinner for a few friends up to a comfortable and prestigious meeting table for up to a dozen people in your office, boardroom or conference room. This versatility is achieved by way of a couple of expansion panels - finished in exactly the same way and to the same standard as the tabletop itself - which can be added or removed as the occasion requires.
When both of the panels are installed the table reaches its full splendour measuring some 303cm in length, (a shade below 10ft at 9ft 11 inches). The depth of the table is 117cm (3ft 10 inches) and it is 76cm (2ft 6 inches) high.
A table as substantial as this needs equally substantial support and this is provided by the twin sturdy Regency triple leg splay bases. These terminate with elegant brass lion’s paw style castors which look great and make it easy to move the table around if necessary.
Matching dining chairsThe chairs are made using solid walnut highlighted with elegant burr walnut and intricate marquetry decoration. These Regency dining chairs have convenient drop-in seats which can be removed as required to reveal the very attractive weaved cane seats beneath. This gives you an alternative, somewhat cooler, seating configuration for the summer months or in warmer climates.
This set of dining chairs comprises ten side chairs plus a couple of armchairs for the head(s) of table. The dining chairs measure some 93cm, (3ft 1 inch), high by 48cm, (1ft 7 inch) wide and 46cm, (1ft 6 inches), deep.
The two armchairs are 95cm high x 56cm wide and 53cm deep - 3 ft 1 inch x 1 ft 10 inches x 1 ft 9 inches if you prefer.
The chairs and the table are both worthy of admiration in their own right but when placed together everything shifts up a gear - this is a very special dining table and chair set and is well worth a closer look.

Walnut & Burr Walnut
Walnut is a hard, dense, tight- grained wood that polishes to a very smooth finish. It is a popular and attractive wood whose colour ranges from near white in the sapwood to a dark hew in the heartwood. When dried in a kiln, walnut wood tends to develop a dull brown colour, but when air-dried can become a rich purplish-brown. Because of its colour, hardness and grain, it is a prized furniture and carving wood. Walnut veneer was highly priced and the cost would reflect the ‘fanciness’ of the veneer – the more decorative, then the more expensive and desirable.
Burr walnut refers to the swirling figure present in nearly all walnut when cut and polished, and especially in the wood taken from the base of the tree where it joins the roots. However the true burr is a rare growth on the tree where hundreds of tiny branches have started to grow. Burr walnut produces some of the most complex and beautiful figuring you can find.
Walnut "burrs" were often used to make fabulous furniture. Veneer sliced from walnut burl is one of the most valuable and highly prized by cabinet makers and prestige car manufacturers and is also a favourite material for shotgun stocks.
Inlay was commonly used in the production of decorative burr walnut furniture, where pieces of coloured veneers are inlaid into the surface of the walnut, adding delicate or intricate patterns and designs. Inlays normally use various exotic veneers, but other materials such as mother-of-pearl, brass or bone were also be used.
Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
