Karl Springer, Monumental Goatskin Dining Table, USA, c. 1980
An exquisite dining table made of free form in lay natural goatskin in warm pearl grey. The table is finished in a polished lacquer. Featuring classic Art Deco lines, the round base that blossoms four supports beneath a monumental 8 foot circular top. Springer is often credited with reviving the art of applying skins to furniture long associated with such French Deco masters as Jean Michel Frank, Jean Dunand, and Emile- Jacques Ruhlmann. The table is in pristine condition.
Able to seat up to 10-12, the table is an iconic Springer design and a fantastic example of his signature pieces where elegant forms and proportions meet opulent materials and finishes.
