Circular Solid Oak Dining Table with Cross Stretchers, Europe ca 1950s

$ 5,225
  • Description
    This uncluttered and cosy dining table defines mid-century design with an impeccable quality of material and craftsmanship.

    Thanks in great part to an early emphasis on wood and a theoretical resistance to certain modernist currents by influential designers, most European mid-century pieces have managed to avoid associations with cold industrialization and machine aesthetics. This dining table has a solid oak structure that has the organicity of Scandinavian cabinetmaker pieces. Mid-century designers’ predilection for curvilinear shapes and certain woods, often oak, is evident in this dining table’s sinuous circular top and solid wood body. Since a dining table is first and foremost a utilitarian object, this table’s form follows function, with a sizeable top and a structure that assures stability. The design is very successful in balancing large volumes with clean geometrical lines: the legs are geometrical with softened edges and are connected by cross stretchers that also serve as decoration. This dual-purpose shows why cabinetmakers and their designs are some of the most thoughtful pieces of furniture in existence.

    The oak wood has aged beautifully and displays a beautiful grain within the wood. Mid-century designers and manufacturers placed a heavy emphasis on quality, which is always visible in the joinery technique and the quality of materials they used.

    In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. Some marks and scratches on the wood.
