James Mont, Lotus Low Table, USA, c.1963

A round top with Chinoiserie fretwork on a beautifully carved column pedestal with a Lotus motif base. The table is finished in silver leaf with gold leaf accents.

Mont’s repertoire is synonymous with Hollywood glamour and the exoticism of the East, captured through sumptuous materials and luxurious patently finishes. Blending Oriental flourishes to his custom pieces such as this iconic Lotus Table, Mont was the first to coin the term “Chinese Modern”. In a 1996 article in The New York Times, Mitchell Owens describes Mont’s work as “a stylish uptown fusion of Eastern silhouettes and Western modernism.”

Accompanied by a copy of the original concept drawing of the
Orlowitz living room.
