THE NEW BRIDGE Base was inspired by the old bridges of America.
Brand new design from Drake Casting. A cool retro but modern spin inspired by the old bridges of America's past. The Bridge System comes with two solid cast iron bench bases and a dining table base. Each leg is connected by a rod and mounting hardware for solid lateral support, no wobble. The castings are perforated with holes that give it a 3 dimensional feel. The round circles also give a happy vibe. Nostalgic. MADE IN AMERICA! Create your own table with The Bridge!
