Buxton Coffee Table

Buxton Coffee Table

of South Pomfret

The Buxton Coffee Table is a large version of Thomas Jefferson’s rotating book stand with a few interesting additions.  The functionality works in a similar fashion, but being larger allows for the four adjustable panels to be used as a work surface, as well as a book stand.

The wide mahogany panels are joined with breadboard ends to keep things flat over the years. The boards used for the central panels all came from one large plank, and the continuous grain simplifies the overall look.

The base of the table is fixed around a central turned column.  This allows the entire table rotate and function as a lazy Susan.  The side panels are all hinged and have multiple stops carved into the uprights to give different positions to rest.

The Buxton Coffee Table is made of solid South American Mahogany and brass.  It is finished with linseed oil, turpentine, shellac and paste wax. It was designed by Tony Buxton.

Dimensions: 20 5/8" square x 25 3/4" tall

Price: $5,450
