THE PIE CRUST Table
REVIVED & REFRESHED FOR CONTEMPORARY INTERIORS
The pie crust table originated in England in the mid-18th century and is most associated with the Georgian era. The table is distinguished by a top with a raised carved scalloped edge that resembles the crimped crust of a pie. The result is an eye-catching showpiece full of charm.
A status symbol in the 18th Century, the pie crust table was originally created to serve tea, a luxury that was to be showed off when served.
Today the table is perfect as a side table to a sofa or a chair and the painted finish, in a variety of colours, means it would sit harmoniously with many interiors.
The rare birdcage mechanism that connects the top to the base allows the top to rotate as well as tilt and has been perfectly replicated and functions just as the original.
In the Chelsea Textiles tradition, the table is hand-carved by our master carpenters and then painted & distressed by hand. If you are in the capital during London Craft Week, which takes place the second week of May, you can meet our master craftsmen (May 9th-12th) in our Pimlico Road Showroom who will be demonstrating their skills throughout the day.
Our pie crust table is made from solid wood in sustainably sourced teak and is available in a choice of our signature colours and finishes:
