The Lazslo wicker table
The Lazslo table is actually more of a pedestal table, 5 cm lower than a real dining table. It matches the wicker chairs Lora, Ilona and Piroska, which have a similar elaborate style. It will be just the right height for an aperitif, tea or coffee, or to place a lamp or ornament on. It has a laminated MDF top, which is particularly easy to clean.
Wicker, rattan, what's the difference?
Rattan is a tropical plant (85% comes from Indonesia) related to the palm family which 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".

A wicker table or pedestal table can be used in a veranda, in a winter garden, or outside in good weather and occasionally, but cannot be considered as garden furniture. They are not made to withstand the weather, moisture, frost, or too much sun. The Laszlo 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 soap.
