Norris Furniture & Interiors brings the Charleston Forge Edison Console home

Charleston Forge - Tuesday, February 23, 2016
The Edison Console features a uniquely distressed wood top sitting on an industrial - looking solid steel base.  The Edison Console is so named because the top is made of floor planking that was recovered from one of Thomas Edison's factories when he was the owner of the Wisconsin Chair Company in New London, WI.  The texture comes from years of foot traffic that ground steel slivers into the surface giving it a truly unique look.  The lower shelf is metal and will take the same finish as that chosen for the base itself.  It is available for a limited time only.  

Norris Furniture & Interiors our of Fort Myers, Florida has graciously donated a Charleston Forge Edison Console to the Edison Ford Museum located in their hometown of Fort Myers.  It is on display at the museum and we think it is a perfect 'home' for the table.   We want to thank Norris Furniture and Interiors not only for appreciating the historical significance of this piece, but making sure others can enjoy and appreciate it as well.
