Flower Table ‘Blooming Lovely No 2’ by John Jacques
The Blooming Lovely Flower table No 2 is a beautifully curved table inspired by flowers. For this piece, John wanted to design and make something truly organic. John was drawn to the shape of the Fuchsia flower and the gentle curve of long grass. He used those natural lines to create the curves of the table legs. Steam bent and laminated ripple sycamore and ripple walnut create the petals with a tiger oak central stamen. With a flash of vibrant red, this piece is elegant, organic and blooming lovely!
