A Circular Petrified Wood Low - Coffee Table

PAPPILON
An extraordinary petrified wood low table. Raised on elongated elegant tulip turned legs, with the base dating from the late 19th - early 20th century. Displaying a circular petrified wood top, probably sourced from Madagascar and dating from the Triassic period. Petrified wood is fossilised wood, a historic process that began millions of years ago when prehistoric trees were buried by sediment and protected in an oxygen low environment. Water-rich minerals passed through the sediment, replacing the original plant with silica, calcite, pyrite and other materials like opal. This is an incredibly slow process called permineralization. This process lasts for millions of years, during which the organic remains are replaced by minerals and then replaced with stone. Each of the round sections is a cross-section of a trunk, composed from Several individual trunks to form the pattern present on this table top.

Pappilon is a Mother and Daughter collaboration of ideas spanning 'some' decades of new and old.  Both having a fascination with interiors and art we like to think we have a unique style and taste where we select individual pieces for their own stand-alone worth and value and like family, it is a growing family of ideas that makes us love what we do.

We feel that antiques which have withstood the test of time relate to a quality found in craftsmanship most often lost in today's modern age. This doesn't simply mean we stick with the old but the ethos of what we stand for is that even antiques for the future should have a consideration to its longevity and quality as well as its style.

We source pre-loved and sometimes tired pieces of furniture and items from many locations around the UK and in and around Europe. We lovingly restore each piece and sympathetically bring it back to life either by injecting it into the 21st century or restoring it back to its original state.
