This French Empire table emulates a style similar to furniture made in New York by French émigré cabinetmaker Charles-Honoré Lannuier (1779-1819). When Robert R. Livingston returned to the Hudson Valley after his tenure in Paris, he took with him a passion for French furniture and design, and decorated his estate with the spoils of his journey. This pier table may have resided in the dining room at Clermont, along with other elegant French furnishings.
