The dramatic birch wood is mesmerizing and draws you to reach out and touch this table. Simple and elegant, this Swedish drop leaf table is made from a rich yellow birch that glows with depth and character. Of special note are the stylized paw feet and the flame birch sides and book matched top, a more expensive addition at the time. The handsome pedestal base is substantial, adding to the impressive look of the side table. When the table leaves are down the table measures 36" wide, but expands to 52" open allowing it to serve as a small dining table as well. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close.
