MEDEILTON, N.Y. — How to assemble a classic Italian dining table set from the simplest materials to the most elaborate.
This week’s show features a selection of vintage and modern items from a wide variety of Mediterranean countries.
The tableware includes dishes and chairs, as well as chairs, tables, a bed, a desk, an armoire, and an oven.
The items range from simple to very ornate, with each piece having its own unique story.
“We’re not going to say it’s a classic, we’re not just going to throw it away.
We’re going to preserve it, and then we’re going the extra mile and we’re trying to make it as beautiful as possible,” said Deborah DeFede, a professional woodworker and designer in New York.
“It’s the most beautiful thing you could possibly imagine.”
Here’s a look at a few of the more interesting items.
The “table of life” is made from a combination of wood and marble, and is made of a mix of marble and wood.
The tablecloth is a blend of natural fabrics and silk.
The “lady of the house” is a beautiful antique, made from reclaimed leather and woven in Italy.
The dress is made entirely of woven fabric, with two pieces of leather and a lace skirt for a neckline.
The skirt has an open top, and a slit on the bottom to allow the wearer to take a nap.
The basket and table are made of reclaimed cloth and are made from the same fabric.
The mantelpiece is made out of a combination in Italian and Italian, with a curved edge.
It features a beautiful rosewood, and two layers of wood.
DeFede says the items have a certain elegance to them.
“It’s almost like you could pick up the pieces and you’re walking down the street and you wouldn’t be able to tell that the pieces were handmade,” she said.
“That’s what makes them so special.”
In this episode, we talk with Deborah DeSade, an artist, designer, and woodworker in New Jersey.
She also has her own show called “The Art of The Classic Table.”
The Art Of The Classic TABLE (2017) is produced by PBS’ Public Television Service and hosted by David M. Gans.
The show is available on the PBS website.
