What Houzz contributors are saying:
Live-Edge Wood and ConesIngredients: Live-edge trestle table, conical upholstered chairs, streamlined banquette The raw edge of this table brings in a woodsy natural element, paired with playful cone-shaped chairs from Verner Panton. Live-edge furniture was made popular by designer George Nakashima, who combined his woodworking skills with modern design. Slope banquette: Tori Golub Interiors; chandelier: custom, fabricated using Silver Drop pendants handblown by Esque Studio; table: custom, but similar versions are available at Hudson Furniture; chairs: Verner Panton
The futuristic, gravity-defying silhouette of the Cone Chair was a breakthrough for Panton, who was moving away from the popular Danish modern aesthetics of his former mentor Jacobsen and his friend Hans Wegner and into the spirit of the space age.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
A trestle table is used to give a more natural feel to a highly modern setting and they go well together. The form of the lights above the table and the chairs alone give away the modern, borderline futuristic theme. Arguably the emphasis could be on the trestle table as it adds 'natural' color to the room. However the painting could also be where the emphasis is at.
