Commissioned table

I was contacted a few weeks ago by a client in Chicago who wanted one of my pedestal tables designed for her home. She has been a delight to work with on the project, and the result of extended discussion and thought on the design is shown below.

This table incorporates two innovations for my tables – the use of a patchwork of copper rather than a solid piece for the inset sides, and the first use of foldforming (or the subset of foldforming we call ‘creaseforming’) for the top. These arose from the client’s interest in the brown-on-brown color – a thin layer of brown patina over brown (flame-treated) copper, and her wish for a dramatic and different design for her table.

The design process, wherein we discussed many different color options, gave me ideas for a second table, based on the same design, which I call this one’s ‘dark twin’. I will post pictures of it here shortly. For more information on my tables, click here.
