A Trio of Art Deco Tables

by Michael on November 7, 2012

"Mont Blanc"

“Mont Blanc” (The Ice Table) Zinc inlay with ice birch surround and sides, tiger maple legs.


“Pierre” (The Masculine Table) Leather inlay with Macassar ebony surround and sides, bubinga legs and wenge feet.


“Jacqueline” (The Feminine Table) Shagreen (sting-ray skin) inlay with tamo surround and sides, bird’s eye maple legs and ash feet.

I was asked by Mr. John Fraser, chef / owner of Dovetail (www.dovetailnyc.com), the recently-expanded, three-star restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, to design and build three side tables. Architect for the expansion, Richard Bloch (www.richardblocharchitect.com) stipulated only the dimensions and basic stylistic time period into which the tables should fall.
