This pair of bean-shaped end tables -- called kidney tables -- have been given new life and are now sleek and fabulous. Though often associated with midcentury furniture design, kidney-shaped furniture has existed for hundreds of years, and this pair is dated 1917 on the bottom! The tabletops were treated to sleek coats of midnight blue paint, while the tapered legs were left natural wood, albeit oiled for added depth of color. These century-old tables are imperfect (the top of one retains some water damage to the veneer, which has been camoflouged but cannot be completely masked), but reimagined they make perfect accent and add a pop of sleek, sophisticated color to any room. [Also pictured: linen-cotton blend waffle throw in navy, embroidered floral pillows.]
Pair of 1917 Kidney Tables
These tables was purcahsed from a woman in northern Michigan. They originally belonged to her grandparents, who had them for as long as she can remember. She believes her grandparents brought them along when they moved from Flint to settle in the Petoskey area.
