This is a contemporary large dining table and chair set which comprises a flame mahogany twin pillar dining table plus a set of ten matching Hepplewhite style chairs.
Although this is a new product the craftsmanship is certainly reminiscent of days gone by when furniture was made by craftsmen who had taken many years to reach the peak of their abilities and felt comfortable working with very expensive materials such as flame mahogany and the other favourites, burr walnut and birdseye maple.
Let’s look at the table first of all. The table features an elegant flame mahogany top set off by a crossbanded satinwood border. It is supported by twin Regency triple leg splay bases that terminate in brass lion’s paw castors for ease of movement.
Here is a dining table and chair set that can accommodate everything from a small gathering of the family or friends right up to ten people attending a meeting in a boardroom. This versatility is down to the table having its own expansion capability courtesy of two separate expansion panels that can be slotted into the tabletop as required.
Seating of a most stylish and comfortable kind is provided by the accompanying set of ten Hepplewhite style dining chairs in fabulous flame mahogany.
The set comprises eight chairs and two armchairs, all of which feature a distinctive shieldback design and 'drop in' seats that are upholstered in the finest olive green Alcantara fabric.
This Flame Mahogany large Regency dining table & Hepplewhite chair set is new and offered for sale in showroom condition. Please examine the photographs supplied carefully to satisfy yourself of this condition.

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.
