The Belleville Tables are modelled on the classic bistro table, but thanks to a choice of wood veneer, melamine or HPL tops, their appearance is highly variable. The slender legs flow in a continuous sweeping line from the splayed bottom along the central column up to the table top. In star-shaped or paired configurations, they form elegant bases for small and large bistro or dining tables. The colour and surface texture of the cast aluminium table legs, which have a black powder-coated finish, are nearly indistinguishable from the plastic frame of the perfectly matched Belleville Chair. And since the materials of the table tops and seat shells are either identical or harmoniously coordinated, the tables and chairs form a unified yet diverse group - a hybrid family of furnishings whose materiality resists classification. Thus the tables can be ideally combined with Belleville Chairs in bustling bistro settings as well as in sleekly modern galleries or diversely styled home environments. The Belleville Table is available as a small square or round bistro table with a star-shaped base or as a bistro and dining table in different widths and lengths with slightly arched T-legs. Depending on the model, the table tops come in wood veneer, melamine or solid core material.
