The Honorine wicker table
The Honorine table is in fact more of a pedestal table, lower by 10 cm than a real dining table. It matches the wicker chairs Marius, Cesar and Fanny, with their openwork wicker nets. It will be just the right height for an aperitif, tea or coffee, or to place a lamp or a trinket. It is equipped with a glass tray embedded in the wicker structure, which prevents it from slipping, and a small magazine tray underneath.
Wicker, rattan, what's the difference?
Rattan is a tropical plant (85% from Indonesia) related to the palm family that produces a "cane" that is easy to bend (with steam). Rattan allows for tighter curves and finer weaves than wicker, but being less rigid, it requires a heavier frame.
Wicker (another name for willow) grows easily throughout Europe. It does not require any plant protection products or fertilizer. The harvest is completely regenerated each year, so it is a very easily renewable resource. Peeled hot ("buff" wicker with natural copper tones) or cold ("white" wicker), it is most often presented untreated, the willow fibre leaving its smooth and satiny surface to appear "au naturel".
Characteristics and options
Overall dimensions: height 63 x diameter 65 cm, diameter of glass only 60 cm. Weight 7 kg (with glass). Structure, nets and arches: natural buff wicker (no varnish or stain), bleached wicker ligatures. Made in Europe. Also available with a glass diameter of 50 cm.
A wicker table or pedestal table can be used in a conservatory, a winter garden, or outdoors in good weather and occasionally, but cannot be considered as garden furniture. They are not made to withstand the elements, humidity, frost, or long exposure to the sun. The Honorine table is also hand-woven. Dimensional differences of 1 to 2 cm may occur, no two are exactly alike.
Maintenance: dust with a damp cloth, avoid commercial cleaning products. In case of heavy soiling, clean with a sponge and Marseille soap. For the glass part, window cleaners are suitable, but avoid spraying on the wicker part (put your product on a cloth rather than spraying it directly on the glass).
