Customizing a 2-Tone Trestle Table

Rebecca, our new Vermont Woods Studios Furniture graphic designer has been working back and forth with a customer this week on a customized dining table.  Adam liked our Oval Trestle Table shown on the website in maple, but he wanted it in a 2-tone combination of cherry and walnut wood.

The first idea Adam wanted to try was a solid walnut base with a cherry table top.  Rebecca photo-shopped this image for him, but they both thought is was a bit too much walnut for his space.

So they toned down the walnut some with this version where the table was almost all cherry except for walnut feet, trestle and buttons over the trestle joints.  Still too much walnut for Adam's taste.

Rebecca then emailed Adam this option and it turned out to be the Goldilocks version–not too much walnut, not too little, it was just right.  I like it a lot and am hoping Adam will send us photos of his dining room once the new table is installed.
