European Solid Wood Dining Table with Tenon and Mortise Joinery, Europe ca 1950s

$ 7,315
  • Description
    This characteristic solid wood dining table is a nod to modernist design with traditional European mid-century craftsmanship. The design relays an insight about the society and culture in which it was produced: closeness to nature, the appreciation of a clutter-free environment and the value of quality handiwork.

    The mid-century pieces that appeal to most are the models that were designed with both nature and function in mind, for the sheer fact that they seem completely contemporary and undated. This dark wood dining table, is on par with the designs of Axel Einar Hjorth, and Göran Malmvall, and is exceptional on its own merit. This piece was created with considerable technical expertise and holds a natural expression with its airy and organic design, which is dominated by the natural beauty of the material and the creative use of the tenon and mortise joinery. The hand carved rectangular tabletop showcases the wood’s versatile pattern, reinforcing the rustic and elemental feel. In a somewhat unusual manner, the legs have a more rounded shape compared to most of the similar contemporary pieces. In addition to the elaborate way in which they connect to the base, and as a result, the lower structure as a whole is quite decorative. The cabinetmaker’s expertise can be easily traced in the legs’ joinery technique on the so-called ‘H’ stretchers.

    European modern – despite its name – in many ways transcends the word ‘modern’, and so does this dining table. Like the style, this piece can be incorporated successfully into contemporary and traditional interiors alike, lending itself to a timeless and universal appeal.
