Quadra Table by Luis Arrivillaga

I stopped at the farm stand before heading to grams house. Pound of oven roasted turkey, block of sliced cheese, bag of rolls, pint of strawberries, small container of macaroni salad, and half a cantaloupe. All checked out and on the way out the door I noticed a new item I never saw here before…homemade chocolate ice cream!  Back to the register, couldn’t resist.
We were having a picnic. She’s 90 years young, strong as a horse, sweet as a teaspoon of honey. Bent down to help me open the folding card table to use for our outdoor make shift patio set on her lawn (which she fresh cut herself the day before).  “This table has seen many memories” she smiles.  We enjoy our meal, and reminisce over the many family picnic buffets our table served.
The Quadra Table by Luis Arrivillaga praises convenience. The design fits in with charming and gets along well with chic, crossing paths of farmhouse table meets utility folding table. It’s all about balance and perfect position for the unattached legs to hold any length table top within a fixed width. The artists says the piece is, “inspired by the geometrical shape that permits an invisible view of a natural static structure.” Available in leg frames colored in many beautiful shades such as soft green, vibrant yellow, charcoal. So simple and lovely this lucky number has equal potential to see generations through stories of its own.
