The Peggy series is designed for both residential dining and commercial use. The table is made from solid ash, with a veneered ash top and solid lipping. It has been designed for flexibility of use and has a supporting frame that is designed to accommodate cables and data access. A refined aesthetic is created through the elliptical shape of the angle support frame and the subtle rotation of the oval legs, which are linked to the top by a mortis and tennon joint. A sense of proportion is established through the consistent 45-degree angle of the leg to the tabletop corner. The tabletop is 25 mm thick and will be available in a number of finishes and sizes.
