Was a beautiful day here a few weeks ago when I decided to drive out to Santa Monica and Venice Beach to see the water…that was my intent…drive over to the beach…inhale some fresh beach air…put my feet in the sand…watch some waves and enjoy the super bright blue skies. None of that happened (of course). As I drove down Pico, I did catch a glimpse of the sparkling water just beyond Shutters hotel…it was blue and sparkling! Somehow though my car inexplicably took a turn down Main Street in Santa Monica and then another turn onto Abbot Kinney Road in Venice Beach and there I was in the midst of several furniture shops…no beach in sight.
Well I sauntered into Bountiful on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach and one of the first things I noticed was this twelve foot long white farmhouse table…front and center of the store. I was amazed by the length of the table…I had never seen anything soooooooooooooooo long (sorry…couldn’t help myself with the “so”). It was rustic yet modern looking at the same time; simple and elegant…and definitely would NOT fit into my house which is about 12′ wide total it feels like!
Anyhoooooo…when I inquired…I found that this farmhouse wood table is in fact a 19th century American made piece of furniture (circa 1870’s).
Love it!! Great dining table…wonderful for a large eat-in kitchen or would make a huge impact in a formal dining room. More food for thought!
White washed 12′ long farmhouse style table; 19th century American made, $6200. Bountiful, 310-450-3620.
