This table is a vintage/antique Duncan Phyfe style drop leaf double pedestal table. I don't know the provenance of the piece but I am guessing it is anywhere from 50 - 70 years old. Duncan Phyfe tables are easily recognized as they are almost always pedestal tables with fluted legs and metal feet and by their drop leaves. Drop leaves are sides that are hinged and fold down rather than being removed like traditional leaves, these tables are ideal for small spaces as they can be reduced in size quickly without needing additional storage.
Double pedestal Duncan Phyfe are harder to find than single pedestal but what really caught my eye with this table was the modern polished silver feet. Usually the fluted legs end in paws or claws often in a gold tone. In all my time I have never seen a table with silver feet! It's possible they are not original to the table or perhaps it alludes to the time it was made. During the 50's and 60's this polished metal was exceedingly popular. Regardless the silver feet make it a lovely match to the chrome and silver that are so popular in today's interiors.
When using a dining table as a desk, I usually recommend having a piece of glass cut for the top, laptops, coffee mugs, phones etc can be hard on a surface. You can usually get a custom glass top made in a matter of days for $200 - $300 at your local glass repair shop. If you aren't too fussed by dings or marks enjoy the patina your table will earn.
Here are a few examples of dining tables as desks that I think are just lovely!
