A HANDCRAFTED PIECE OF HISTORY IN YOUR HOME
Hello! My name is Capers L. Cauthen. Born and raised in Charleston, SC, I’ve spent a lifetime watching the destruction of old buildings and the memories within. As the son of a leading preservationist and curator (Henry F. Cauthen, Jr.), watching people throw out all that wood – and the history it contains – inspired me to start Landrum Tables.
My father passed to me a wealth of information about Charleston architecture and American furniture, and most of the wood I use to create a Landrum Table is from historic Charleston County itself. Every piece of wood I incorporate in my handmade design reveals its origin, personality and age in a thousand tiny ways – from its tool marks and style of construction to the type of wood that was used.
From my first drawings of a 1700’s slab table years ago to my pieces on permanent display at Charleston City Gallery, each design is original and carefully crafted to integrate the qualities and histories of the individual pieces of wood. With my love of both history and the environment, recycling old wood and the memories it contains gives me a sense of pride… it is an opportunity to remember, to preserve, and to showcase our country’s natural beauty and colorful past.
I invite you to discover my other unique pieces, which can be found everywhere from the Marion Square Charleston Farmer’s Market, to Enoteca Wine Bar on Percy St, Two Boroughs Larder on Coming St, Bull Street Gourmet on King St, and Charleston Flower Market on Maybank Hwy. There are several styles of Landrum Tables, and they can be fitted to any desired size, shape, or stain color.
A true custom table with a heart, a soul, and a memory, Landrum Tables, are a unique way to bring a piece of history into your home and make it your own.

I look forward to creating for you.
