The epitome of modernism and craftsman construction! Upon initial inspection this 1950s table appears simple and plain, but look closer and it is actually complex and extremely well-designed. Starting with the table top, the fumed oak grains have been meticulously chosen to create matching tiger stripes, which in turn creates an alternating light/dark pattern across the entire surface. Made up of many thin strips (rather than wider sheets of veneer), it would have taken a skilled craftsman many hours to create this look. The skirt of the table is made with panels of vertically grained oak which have been chosen so that they appear to meld into the vertical grain of the legs; a clever illusion and evidently done with great intent, as a basic horizontally grained piece of wood could have easily been used instead but would not have had the same effect. The construction of this table is unlike any others we've seen - long oak stretchers on the underside stabilize and keep the table top flat and straight, and are reinforced with butterfly joinery and multiple support wedges. It's hard to express the quality execution and design of this table without actually seeing it! Fully refinished, re-glued, and restored. Design attributed to iconic graphic designer Paul Rand as per previous owner - ONE OF A KIND. 53"L x 40.5"W x 29.5"H, NOW $595
