Louis Majorelle Three-Tiered Walnut Pedestal
This French Art Nouveau three-tiered walnut pedestal by Louis Majorelle, features a rotating tray on the top. Leaves and berries adorn the upper portion of the legs. The gently curving legs are also deeply carved. Firmly rooted in the craft of woodwork and furniture-making, Louis Majorelle's furniture subtly recalled the splendors of furniture from the 1700s. Louis Majorelle often ornamented his pieces with gracefully-sculpted sumptuous organic natural forms, like the grape bunches featured here. Using a new vocabulary of natural motifs and flowing lines of Art Nouveau, Majorelle's furniture merged old and new in a tantalizing way.
