indehoy. Table. July 18th , 2018.
Thankfully, there is still a great selection of round coffee tables online and online retailers in some cases, have them priced to move. In contrast to square end tables, round ones can give your room a much softer look, making it more friendly and inviting. This is due to the tricks our eyes like to play on us. For reasons beyond the scope of this article, our eye associates square, blocky items as being more formal, while round and oval are seen as more approachable and relaxed.
Today, end tables have made a comeback. No longer sold automatically in pairs with a coffee table, they have struck out on their own, joined by accent tables, occasional tables, drum tables, side tables... the list goes on and on and on.
According to the Chinese tradition, tables are generally categorized into two major groups of zhou (tables with corner legs), and an (tables with recessed legs). There are also two sub-groups of kang tables and ji tables. Zhou tables can be waisted or waistless. The legs of the waisted tables always terminate into horse-hoof feet. The legs of the waistless ones are generally of circular section, splayed slightly outwards at the sides, and end with straight feet. Those with narrow or no waists are often strengthened with humpbacked stretchers or S-curved braces. In some instances, base stretchers are added. Generally speaking, the high waist is portioned with vertical braces. The top section of the front four legs are exposed to form corner vertical braces. Panels enclosed within the braces are carved with relief or openwork designs. The high waist is not only decorative but it also has a structural component to stabilize the legs.
