Franc Table

Starting at $16,900 USD

Our Original Designs are made to order by master craftsmen, with a lead time of 12-14 weeks. Make it yours by selecting your choice of wood finishes.

Our team of Design Specialists are ready to answer any of your questions and help inspire you from frame to finish.

A luxuriously restrained archetype hand-crafted to accommodate generations, our Franc table commands centuries of woodworking techniques in planes of solid wood, enriched by subtle, high-touch detailing that make it soar. 

The Franc is constructed from solid hardwood that is shaped, sanded, buffed, and finished by hand at a master multi-generational, family-owned woodworking shop in Pennsylvania. Its subtly chamfered top is inlaid with butterfly joints and exposed splines, providing both unassailable solidity and subtle design flourish. Its intricately carved legs are fashioned entirely by hand and joined together by solid wood cross-stretchers for infallible support. The cross-brace doubles as a footrest, characteristic of library and work tables. Once assembled, the Franc is sanded and buffed repeatedly, resulting in a finish that highlights and enhances the rare, rich grain of its discerningly sourced hardwood. 

Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer’s Roman and Williams Guild Original Designs are each branded with our insignia and delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
