Like many of their other pieces this latest collection from Duffy London combines flair with functionality. The new Civilization Tables from the east London furniture design group combine the modern with the historical in a limited edition of eleven glass topped tables with architecturally hand-carved stone bases.
Civilization Tables by Duffy London
The collection of Civilization Tables by Duffy London are based on three of the most ancient temples and monuments from around the world: The Madain Saleh (Hegra) in Saudi Arabia, the Kailasa Temple in Maharashtrar, India and the Petra in Jordan.
These enduring ancient wonders were literally carved straight out of the earth’s rock with the most intricate skills and this series of tables designed by Christofer Duffy and created with Master Stonemasons, are an homage to their artistry.
The Civilization Tables have bases that are rescaled replicas of the three actual historic monuments and when combined with the glass tops they unite the ancient with the modern in terms of both materials and style.
The tables are limited to 11 editions, each unique in terms of the base. History and architecture lovers alike will appreciate them.

Each table is made bespoke to the customer’s requirements in size and in the choice of stone/colour, each piece of stone is hand-selected for every commission, please allow 16 weeks manufacture time as every table is immensely time-consuming in man-hours as each is carved entirely by hand.
Civilization Table is limited to 11 editions.
