Drogo Kitchen Table
This iconic table is in many ways the archetype of Sir Edwin Lutyens’s furniture designs. The original still sits in the cavernous kitchen at Castle Drogo in Devon, (a National Trust property and open to the public) where he placed it below the lantern dome, the only source of natural light in the room.
The table is a statement of mass and structure and incorporates many of the themes to which Lutyens often returned in his designs for furniture; the column legs with bun feet beneath the stretcher rails, the geometric games – in this case concentric hexagonals diminishing on the circular top and the attention both to detail and proportion.
We make an exact replica of the original and that illustrated has been aged to appear as though it was made a century ago. It has a diameter of 74” and has a beach top over an oak base. We also make it to look like new! Lutyens also developed the theme into a rectangular version both in the pantry at Drogo and in his own home.
Mindful of the scale and mass of the original table, we have also developed a smaller piece that is more manageable for most modern domestic settings. This can be circular or rectangular to any specified size.
