THE VISTA PRODUCT LINE The Vista line of furnishings is available in a variety of standard finishes.

A pair of routed details at the top and one at the bottom of each square leg creates an elegant profile. Made of solid, 2-3/8” hardwood, the legs accept two horizontal rails along the short sides of the table. In a design detail reminiscent of the Mission style, these rails buttress 8 quadralinear posts. Braced between the two lower rails is a solid rectangular stretcher, which completes the table’s robust, yet balanced, silhouette. Lyptus® wood receives commonly used stains and finishes well. With a rich, red tone that rivals that of mahogany or cherry, natural Lyptus® wood is striking when finished with clear premium lacquer, as shown here.
