Amazing and elegant, sculptural Danish Arne Hovmand-Olsen design side or table is made with a combination teak with a lower shelf of hand woven rattan cane. Beautiful 1960's clean Scandinavian design in original condition. This is unique in that it has a curved lip on the top. Tapered with curved legs lengthwise in one piece, another feature exemplifying Danish modern design. The second shelf adds space for storage and unique design details. I haven't been able to find another exactly like it, but did find Scandinavian mid century designers that used rattan accents the closest would be Arne Hovmand-Olsen in design. Others are: Poul Jensen, designed by Knud and Erick Christensen for Selig. Also Randley Mabelfabrik and Louis van Teeffelen for Webe Holland. PICK-UP IN ONTARIO - shipping can be arranged but this would require professional packing or white-glove service.
CONDITION: Superb undamaged or repaired condition, treated with Danish oil. Some very miniscule signs of use.
SIZE: 25 inches long x 18 1/2 inches wide and 20 1/2 inches high.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
