For years Joe and I have used a wonderful table in our living room. It’s a drum-type table that we bought from David Bell’s antique store in Georgetown. For Christmas 2002 I put a small tree on it, decorated only with ornaments that we have made here at the factory on hobby nights. Every year we’d work together in the evenings to make a special angel, omnibus, Chesapeake Bay crab, or Santa. There is even a replica of Joe’s in-line skates. Only employees and the friends had access to these limited editions, which I treasure and display separately from our main tree. My cat Phoebe loved batting at this tree of treasures.
The inset marble top has hosted many a meal and a game of cards, all leaving their indelible marks on the once white top. Consequently I never worry about any marks we may leave. Previous owners have painted shut all but three of the drawers, but there’s still plenty of room for the miscellaneous desk stuff we use.
This table functions so well that we’ve been urging Joe to turn it into a new product for Niermann Weeks, which he’s finally done. Our new Chatsworth Table debuted in our DC showroom just in time for Nancy Corzine to sign her newest book, Nancy Corzine: Glamour at Home.
Up close, Niermann Weeks‘ new Chatsworth Table has a distressed celadon finish, neutral enough to work in many settings. It’s eco-friendly, made from farmed poplar trees, and all the paints are water-based. For the top, we can insert a faux marble slab or, my favorite, a real marble slab. And naturally we’ll make you a custom version as a larger or small table, as a console, as a coffee table, or whatever. Anyway you want it, I’m glad Joe finally decided to share this special table with you. I hope you enjoy using the Chatsworth Table in your home as much as we do.
