Ron Seff, Pair of “Ritz” Gilt and Lacquer Side Tables, USA, c. 1980

The elegant shape of Ron Seff’s iconic “Ritz” table meets the artist’s masterful execution of luxe materials and inlay.  Evocative of the era in which they were made, the glamorous pair is energized by a zigzag design across a black lacquered surface. Its  form is further highlighted by a gleaming 24 karat gilt framing and mother-of-pearl inlay.

Todd Merrill Studio has been chosen as the exclusive representative for the vintage collection of works by Ron Seff. After 36 years of business, Ron Seff has formally closed its doors at their final showrooms in New York and Miami. The present selection comprises the artist’s original showroom models and prototypes, mostly dating to the early 1980s, which have been meticulously stored cared for since the artist’s death in the late 1980s. None of these designs will be produced again, and most of the remaining works are the last of their original production.

Today, integrating materials such as as shagreen, bone, lacquered leathers, and shell to furniture pieces is becoming a lost art. These works offer clients a unique opportunity to acquire vintage pieces that are in excellent condition and made with the level of artistry no longer found anywhere in the world.

Seff’s pieces epitomize the niche, custom-work of the era, each having been handmade by the the last generation of artists trained by the early makers of great European design.
