With the Beekman, Bill Sofield demonstrates that a design can be substantial, masculine, and still refined. The top uses quarter-cut Mozambique to create a chevron effect - which becomes a diamond when the Table is closed. The darker border is figured Macassar Ebony. The pedestals revisit the Art Deco tulip, with concentric routing for a sense of depth, over a stepped base. Extends to 128" with both leaves. The geometric nature of the Beekman's design tends to unify a dining room. While the Table works easily with a large serving piece, it also allows multiple, more eclectic support items. When not in use, impressive pedestals encourage the owner to consider showing it without the side chairs.
