Breathtaking pair of oversized Hollywood Regency faux burl wood laminate and chrome nightstand end tables. Reminiscent of works by Karl Springer with the signature curved edges and Art Deco inspiration. Drawers are bisected by a strip of chrome and accented with machine age pulls.
Very good overall condition. Only minor imperfections on burl laminate and brass. Nicks and chips have been filled with epoxy wood patch. Detailed top to bottom.
About Karl Springer:
Springer worked with many materials, often exotic, to translate pure, classical shapes into contemporary, custom-made furniture. He was sole owner of Karl Springer Ltd. , with showrooms in NY, LA and Tokyo with additional outlets in Munich and Chicago. His signature styles were classical Chinese and Art Deco, the latter inspired by his predecessors Ruhlmann and Jean-Michel Frank. Other influences seen in his creations ranged from the Bauhaus of Germany, his native country, to the Ashanti of Africa. Craftsmen around the world implemented his designs and he traveled widely to oversee the workshops and to scout for new ideas, forms and materials.
