Description Many associate Danish furniture design with the country’s golden age, the mid-twentieth century. This simple, yet beautifully designed and executed coffee table shows why this is. This mid-century modern design table combines aesthetics with modern functionality in line with the country’s design philosophy.

The tabletop is circular, supported by four, slightly tapered legs. There is a clear concern for materiality melded with a desire for a Shaker-like clarity. Instead of ornamentation, the designer and manufacturer emphasized the natural pattern of the material.

Along with the beautiful colour of the rosewood (palisander in Germanic and Nordic languages), the pattern of the wood grain is unique to the tree. Rosewood is richly streaked and grained with black resinous layers and is known for its irregular and striking patterning, with light to dark base colour between the patterns. Besides the great qualities of the rosewood, artistic workmanship hugely adds to the value of this table.

Danish modern – despite its name – in many ways transcends the word ‘modern’. It is a style that can be incorporated successfully into contemporary and traditional interiors alike, lending itself to a timeless and universal appeal. Much of the country’s furniture, like this table, is rooted in the historical development of form, and is thus able to transcend time, incorporating seamlessly into today’s interiors. ~H.
