Choosing the Right Frame for Your Table

Choosing custom tables from Table Topics means you’re making a long-term investment in a valuable product. Making that product the best it can be is what we’re all about. We walk through the design process with our clients, offering our experience and expertise at each phase.

One of the most critical elements of design is the table frame. After choosing the specifics of the table’s center – solid wood, veneer, graphic inset, etc. – it’s time to choose a frame. It can be simple or it can add a critical element to your design. We have standard and budget options and we also have new designer frame options.

These new options are veneer frames with designer shapes to offset your center. They allow us to use exotic woods that may not be available in solid form, or to use traditional woods in an innovative way. We are currently offering 20 veneer frame patterns. The possibilities include classic species like pine, maple and cherry, as well as exotics such as rosewood, pecan and teak.

From here, we determine the edge and the profile to complete the look and feel that works best. Again, many options means you get a custom design to meet the specific requirements of your project, your space and your budget.

Our custom tables are built on a combination of your needs, taste and design parameters, plus our expertise and commitment to quality. The result is an amazing product our clients can be proud of for years to come.

Marquetry: It’s All About the Details

At Table Topics, we love the details. We are excited to imagine them, trained to confirm them and equipped to deliver them. If you want to add a little something extra to your table, trim or unique design elements, we will bring it to life.

The technique of veneered marquetry was inspired by practices in 16th-century Florence and at Naples. In marquetry, inlaid patterns made from small pieces of variously colored wood or other materials is used for the decoration of furniture, forming decorative patterns, designs or pictures. In modern craftsmanship, marquetry commonly used time-consuming, knife-cut veneers. Today, many producers have switched to fret or scroll saw techniques and even laser cutting.

Table Topics offers a large selection of marquetry trim options – available in both real veneer and digital options – and can even offer custom colors in our digital designs. Look through our designs, such as this digital raffia and fabric look,  or check out these images of marquetry trim options.

If you have a custom design in mind, get started by going over our specification guide or by contacting us directly. With your design specs and some general detail about your project, we can get the conversation started and the process underway. The result will be an amazing, durable product, second to none, that will set your project and your space apart.

You dream, we build.
