Description

This superb coffee table is crafted from Kauri, offering a local take on a piece from one of Denmark's preeminent mid-century designers. It showcases the elegance of Danish design and has been crafted in New Zealand to a world class standard. It's not often we encounter anything like this.

A solid kauri table top with subtle brass detailing elevates it from the slender frame below. Hand shaped laterals and bow-tie supports round out this stunning table.

Provenance: We have purchased this coffee table from the original owner's daughter. "My father was a cabinet maker named Arthur Golding. He has passed away, but was a very talented guy who trained in cabinet making at Scoullers in Wellington. All of his pieces were one offs, this particular piece was made to flat pack down as he relocated to Auckland from Wellington. He recycled kauri from Kildcaldie and Stains cosmetic counters, as it was being thrown away. He was a very talented carver who made church pulpits and then went on to do gunsmithing (making and carving gun stocks)".

Style this with more great design
