The robust design of this unique industrial drafting table originated in the La Mulatiere district of Lyon, France during the late 1800s. Structurally integrated into the table’s solid cast-iron base, the functional hand crank provides smooth height adjustments across a 9-inch range, allowing you to sit or stand while working. With an angular range of approximately 90 degrees, the tilting hardwood top provides even more personalized ergonomics. For more functionality, the pencil-edge bar can be removed to produce a small dining table, standard writing desk, or workbench.
With all the moving parts, cranks, gears, and cogs, this mechanically and historically interesting writing table has a distinctive steampunk-like ethos. Whether combining with urban farmhouse, rustic, retro, industrial loft, or traditional decorating themes, this industrial-style desk is sure to ignite conversations, stimulate the imagination, and add aesthetic character to any office, loft, kitchen, or workspace. Features:
- Heavy-duty cast iron and steel base has an adjustable height range of 9 inches (31 to 40 inches) with locking mechanism.
- Highly durable solid acacia hardwood top is 1.5" thick with a smooth satin provincial finish. The top can be tilted from a horizontal (flat) position to approximately 90 degrees vertical.
- Detachable steel pencil-edge shelf bar prevents drawing instruments and loose paper from falling while tabletop is in a tilted position.
- Finished in a distressed dark gray, the cast iron base is embossed with "LA MULATIERE", signifying the table's origins.
