It will couple nicely with any style dining chairs or conference room seating.

Howe Furniture was founded in 1928 in Connecticut by Harald Howe. Inspired by the early Bauhaus movement, and the principle of form following function, Howe started making just about any furniture that was simple and flexible. Tables, wooden hat racks, etc. Harald Howe laid the foundation for a strong, international, architect-led brand that would become well-known in Europe and the United States throughout the 20th century and still today.

Jens Risoms career spans nearly sixty years. He began his study of design in 1935 at the Copenhagen workshop in Kaare Klint and joined Ernst Kuhn’s architectural office in 1938, where he designed furniture and interiors. In 1939 Risom emigrated to the United States and in 1941 he designed the first chair manufactured by Knoll. He continued to create simple, well-crafted modern furniture with Knoll and George Jenson but eventually in 1946, established his own studio, Jens Risom Design. In 1973, Risom opened a new firm called Design Control whose clients include Howe Furniture Company and Gaylord. Now in his eighties his work continues to reflect the Danish approach to modernism and values the human need for beauty, warmth, and simplicity.

We know you love this gorgeous table as much as we do, make it yours!!
