Description

This chic Danish table will make a premium and coveted addition to any contemporary dining environment. Highly-grained rosewood is teamed with a sophisticated design and crisp detailing. Two generous extensions create a magnificent platform for fine dining, dinner parties and intimate family meals.

Designer John Mortensen began his career in 1959 after graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and earning highest distinctions. Mortensen started out as a cabinet maker for Christensen & Larsen before setting up his own design practice and designing dining, office, and living room furniture for premium Danish and international furniture manufacturers.

Throughout his career, Mortensen specialized in woodwork, creating each of his prototypes in his personal workshop before sending them on for production. His cabinetmaking background was perfect for creating wooden furniture with sophistication and finesse. Today his designs have become coveted mid-century modern classics.
