Louis Majorelle Mahogany Triangular Side Table


This triangular French Art Nouveau table by Louis Majorelle is a multi-level mahogany table dynamically featuring two tiers of related, but varied, shapes married by three beautifully bowed and ribbed legs. While the bottom tier of the table is resolutely triangular, with only the very points of the shape rounded so as to meet each of the three legs gracefully, the upper tier is instead a more concretely rounded structure with only three subtle points above each of the legs' terminations turning it triangular at all. The result is a dynamic composition that invites the eye to meditate on each level of the piece as well as its adjoining structures; the beautiful legs finished with gilt bronze sabots.

Though the beauty of the wood and the dynamism of the composition of the work are immediate and impactful features of this remarkable piece, the gilt bronze features on both the legs and the border of the upper tier add a sense of the luxurious and the Baroque to an otherwise ultra-refined piece.
