For a high ranking British military or foreign service officer in the later part of the 19th Century, there was no better assignment than India. India was called "the jewel in the crown" of the British Empire. And Bengal Province was one of the best stations in that enchanted land.
Many of these officers, upon returning to England, built country homes in the fashion of the homes they knew in India. They called them, affectionately, their "Bengalee" cottages. This term became misconstrued by the workers who built and maintained them into the word we have today: "Bungalow". The term was adopted by the Arts and Crafts architects and exported to America.
Our Bungalow Coffee Table features a graceful oval top and lower shelf. The legs are curved for a bit of drama, and the overall shape provides some real interest in any room setting. The corresponding end table is round, to compliment our oval table.Dimensions:
