James Mont, Lotus Low Table, USA, c. 1963
This table features 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 reflects the Hollywood glamour typical of his era, which he captured through his use of sumptuous materials and luxurious finishes. Adding Oriental flourishes to his custom pieces of furniture, Mont was the first to coin the term, “Chinese Modern.” In a 1996 New York Times article, Mitchell Owens describes Mont’s distinct style 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.
