If you’re visiting the Southern Highlands, you’ll find style exemplified at the Sally Beresford Antiques/ French Farmhouse Tables showroom, just outside of Moss Vale. The collection lives in the rugged, and historic, Produce Store, on the Mount Ashby Estate Winery, a charming spot surrounded by vineyards and grazing dairy cows. Sally Beresford is unafraid of bold choices, and her range of bespoke, locally handcrafted dining and occasional tables, fashioned from select French and European timbers, speaks to this with distinctive lines, and a striking synthesis of the modern and time-honoured. This treasure trove is not short on elements to accent your home: French Provincial and English Georgian antiques, architectural and statement pieces, and objet d’art, acquired on Sally’s buying trips to France. How could your search for style be disappointed here? It couldn’t.
Attention to detail is a benchmark that many aspire to, and that many fail to reach. The French Farmhouse range of custom made tables is built on this aspiration to excellence; each step in the process of creating a French Farmhouse luxury dining table is a step that assures the details are not missed. From the initial consultation with the client to determine style, dimensions, finish, and to incorporate any special requests; to the handcrafting of the structure of the table itself, a refinement of traditional methods dating from the 17th Century; to the artistry expressed in the methods of aging, distressing, and finishing. The entire process happens within tight parameters and assure the details aren’t missed; construction and finish are both completed locally, in New South Wales
