This coffee table has a sleek and rectangular design that captures the essence of the Hague School. It is purely about cubist shapes and clean lines and bring about a feeling of luxury.Frank Lloyd Wright was a great inspiration for this movement after the Interbellum and this table demonstrates that well.
This design only communicates straight lines and angles, but it is subtly layered. That starts with the legs. Modest in size, exactly a cube, and painted black so that it contrasts nicely with the natural look of the oak. They add a lightness to it and it visually lifts the table off the floor. The bottom shelf is clamped exactly between the legs and is finished with a milled edge. This already creates a small detail due to the shadow effect. Under the top, space is given to light and shadow by means of four simple bars.
A relatively thick edge forms the frame of the upper part of the table. In any case, this item has acquired a deep patina over the years. The corners of the legs remain nicely visible and what may not be immediately noticeable at first is that they protrude just a millimeter above the edge. The top itself is a few millimeters lower and has both a functional aspect and aesthetic value. What is on the table cannot just fall off and a small border with shadow is again created. There is also a thin glass plate placed on the top.
The condition is very good with small scratches here and there due to the old age of this item.
