CHARLOTTE PERRIAND, Coffee table, ca. 1960

CHARLOTTE PERRIAND used to select her wood according to the project and what was available from her carpenter, who would season the wood for more than ten years before use.

The table top is left unpainted in order to bring out the grain of the wood, to fully express the material and bring a bit of the natural world into the home.

Perriand designed numerous coffee tables – free form, rectangular, square and here, round.

Perriand’s designs have a powerful identity and this coffee table is no exception. Its simple form is a timeless classic among her creations.
