James Mudge

James Mudge's Brass Top tables first caught our collective eyes at Ebony in Franschhoek where they had a 3M x 1M brass top table.. The amazing thing about these tables is that they are so dainty and look so frail but once you get up close and give them a wobble, they don't budge. I was very happy when James and Rose (who seems to be the right brain of the Mudge family) agreed to let us sell their products!

The James Mudge workshop is quite something to behold. These guys are making hundreds of tables a year, some of them 5M long chunks of Iroko that is 50-60mm thick and must weigh a ton or two. All in a tiny space, with a very small and obviously highly skilled compliment of staff.

Here are some shots I took there:

 

 

We have only brought over his amazing brass top tables in the first shipment, but hope to bring some of his awesome servers and bigger tables over early next year. 

The front doors of the log server are made from one solid peice of timber and the sides machined to give it the look of a solid log. Beautifully mitred doors and neodymium magnets complete this quirky peice.

The pickup sticks server flat packs. Once mounted it looks like a bunch of oak batons with the bottom few falling away from the main bunch.
