Want This Table

Posted in Furniture, Tables, Uncategorized on August 18, 2008 by thewantblog

I spent my morning working with a client looking for the perfect chairs to complement her vintage find, a Florence Knoll Desk/Table by Knoll. Some of you may be familiar with this piece designed in 1961. I often find myself undecided on this table or the Saarinen Tulip dining table. Both are beautiful, but the Knoll Table/Desk is rarely seen in residential interiors.  So you can understand my delight when she told me this was the table that she needed help with for her breakfast room. As with everyone of my clients, I dove right in to help come up with a solution. After a long discussion, I found myself wanting the table more than I did in the past. I too had almost forgotten its understated beauty, and as Florence Knoll was quoted saying, “the meat & potatoes” of the Knoll Collection. In a perfect world, I would complement this table with these chairs.
