Le Poursuivant

Inspired by the ‘Tour de France’ starting in Yorkshire in July we have produced a limited edition, hand-crafted table to signify the Peloton or Yellow Jersey rider leading the pack through the beautiful hills of the Wharfe Valley, the opening backdrop of the prestigious race.

‘Le Poursuivant’, or ‘the chaser’ is crafted from a single piece of Walnut veneer which is then carefully wrapped over the full length of the table in a continuous ‘waterfall’ grain pattern, using resin set elliptical inlays of powdered metal to signify the abstract form and flow of the Peloton.
