Japanese craftsmanship inspires a casual look in this distinguished dining room with an unexpected, Art Deco–revisited style.
A masterpiece in this fascinating dining room, the substantial and sculptural table is perfect for a large home and skilfully combines two opposing trends to brilliant effect: the exuberant Art Deco movement and the more sober, minimalist aesthetic of Japanese style. The chic metal base, whose curves recall those of the iconic coffee table created by designer Isamu Noguchi, offsets the organic appearance of the wooden top with its polished contours.
In addition to this combination of genres is a play on geometry filled with flawless details. For instance, the rounded edges of the table counterbalance the honeycomb pattern of the sideboard, the channel tufting of chairs and the grid-like pattern of the wallpaper, a veritable nod to shōji sliding doors traditionally made of rice paper.
