Karl Springer, Monumental Goatskin Dining Table, USA, c. 1980
An exquisite dining table made of freeform inlay natural goatskin in warm pearl grey. Featuring classic Art Deco lines, the round base blossoms into four elegant pillars that support the monumental eight-foot circular top. The table is finished in a polished lacquer. Springer is often credited with reviving the art of applying skins to furniture, a practice long associated with French Deco masters including Jean Michel Frank, Jean Dunand, and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann. Able to seat up to twelve people, the table is an iconic Springer design and a fantastic example of his signature works in which elegant forms and proportions meet opulent materials and finishes. The table is in pristine condition.
More information on Springer may be found in a chapter dedicated to his work in Todd Merrill’s book, Modern Americana: Studio Furniture from High Craft to High Glam.
