Straight up with a Barley Twist

Barley Twist Table

Come on Baby!  The Barley Twist is that twirley leg that is predominant in 1920’s English furniture…part of the “English Manor” styling  so on trend now.  The vintage maple cocktail table above is 28 inches square and 21 inches high.

Perfect for holding a “cinnamon bun eggnog martini ” close at hand  to take the edge off holiday induced stress (but I digress).

The January 2013 Architectural Digest is showing  loads of Barley Twist legs on high-backed chairs and tables in rooms containing contemporary sectionals and occasional chairs.

Looks like Richard is not the only decorator who is scouring auction houses and dealers for theFrench Martni barley twist.  And I’m not the only person who enjoys one (or two).

Merry Christmas to you and yours!   Clink!
