Stained Elm Dining Table Joints Edition Aranjou, France 1950s

$ 5,225
  • Description
    The 1950s in France was a very versatile decade, the era’s design projects had a wide range both aesthetically and material wise. The modernist solid wood models were mostly created by hand, including this table, showing the organic and modern approach to design.

    This dining table has an almost brutalist look that allows the distinctive back and the stained elm wood to guide the design. 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 elm wood’s pattern and grain. The uneven sides of the top are enhanced, reinforcing the rustic and elemental feel. The base with its long stretchers showcases the beautiful mortise and tenon joinery connecting the three stretchers to the legs and to each other. The cabinetmaker’s expertise can be easily traced in this traditional joinery technique. This shall come as no surprise as French furniture manufacturers are still regarded as some of the best of the mid-century era and are especially known for impeccable joinery and woodwork (think Guillerme et Chambron or Pierre Chapo for example).

    The designer generation active during the mid-20th century created some of the most iconic wooden furniture designs of the whole century. This Aranjou edition table is a beautiful example of how successfully they managed to merge traditional craftsmanship and materials with an essentially modern approach to design.
