Furniture Chronicles – The Kitchen Table

By Guest Blogger Harriet Warren.

Little thought is given to the humble kitchen table, but here at Cord almost all of our conversations and ideas begin around a table.  In fact, the whole concept of creating Cord Industries was brought to life at a table.

For many, the kitchen table will always be where life happens.  In many homes, it’s the first place people sit down at, where cups of tea and cupcakes rest next to abandoned school satchels and laptops, dog leads and car keys; where the Sunday paper with its unfinished crossword remains long after the memories of last weekend have left us.  It eavesdrops on our chats with friends and our dinner party gossip, turns a blind eye to the spilled red wine and the late night dancing; witnesses our children munching on their breakfast cereals and provides a desk away from the classroom for homework, under watchful eye, heads bent over books.  It’s the platform for the games we play together …cards, Monopoly, Snakes & Ladders, Scrabble… and it celebrates with us each birthday and anniversary.
