PHOENIX - Aug. 23, 2013 - PRLog -- People also ask us where we find these table bases? We make them from scratch and have over 10 original base designs (http://www.retro.net/product-category/tables/dining-tables/) to choose from! And we get asked, "what does Hure mean"? Well we've been fascinated with the repurposing of old machine bases into furniture for some time. While researching this, we stumbled across one in Paris made by P. Hure. It had an elegance that most others lacked. And Hure was one of the few that actually signed his work. His company made lathes and milling machines from the late 1800s to the 1940s. Some are still in service today. So we named our base after him.

Why did Hure build a beautiful base on a piece of machinery that didn't really need it? Why the heck not?!! If you were operating a machine all day long, wouldn't it help if it was pleasing to the eye? Craftsmen, in that era, put their heart and soul into what they made. Their drive wasn't profit margins.  So we adopted a similar credo. Steve jobs said it best, "the only way to do great work is to love what you do."

Our IndustriaLux Hure base (http://www.retro.net/shop/hure-industrialux-dining-table/) is of a different style. Hollywood Regency meets Industrial, but we call it IndustriaLux! It has a porcelain white finish, solid brass accents, and we'll have pictures of it with a glass and marble top soon. Available in any color, including black!
