French Gueridon Tables

Written by lantiques.

Picasso dedicated two years of his artistic life to the study of the gueridon tables ( aka side tables, occasional tables, round tables ). The gueridons were so central to his work during the 1919-1920 period that in his biography, John Richardson dedicated them a whole chapter – The Gueridon. The author explains ‘Picasso's traditional attitude toward the bride who loved to sit for him made it very difficult to portray her in any but a traditionally representative way. To reconcile conventional love for Olga with his pursuit of modernity, he turned to the subject of the anthropomorphic guéridon, and applied it to Olga buy diflucan online instead of to himself. ‘ Well, you get the idea.
And he is certainly not the only one daydreaming about gueridon tables- they are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture. They come in a multitude of styles and sizes- opulent, minimalist, maxi, country, modern, urban, extravagant/ small, large or medium- whatever the style, there will be one out there to fit snuggly into any decor. 

This 19c French round oak table with an exquisitely carved base and oval shape top is great for dining. As for seating, why not pair it with a set of six French high back upholstered chairs..?
