United States of America

The fresh perspective of Paul Frankl has been felt from the early designs of his skyscraper line to the mass produced pieces he designed for Brown and Saltman and Johnson Furniture Co. He was instrumental in forging the unique look of the emerging American modernism.

He created pieces that appeal to the American aesthetic. His designs were strong and confident without being heavy handed. With mentors such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Frankl was encouraged to think outside of the box.

The pair of side tables that we are offering cleverly represents his ability to be a non-conformist. The two-tiered tables are a playful convergence of geometry and texture. Made of solid maple and very costly combed oak, these tables are made to last a lifetime.

The checkerboard top is a whimsical way to make such a substantial piece seem less serious. Resting on an open u-shaped base, the table allows for clean spatial line and an openness that would not exist if the designer chose a waterfall or closed base. Frankl use of a combed oak pedestal to separate the tiers of the table shows an understanding of spatial and textual juxtaposition. It was brilliant.

These tables would be an exciting addition to any environment. Even if you are not a designer, anyone can appreciate these unique and exceptional pieces. Frankl at his best. Do not let these get away. The tables are in good vintage condition.
