The Parsons Style Table is a modernist marvel, designed in the 1930’s by Jean-Michel Frank and Parsons School of the Arts student. According to Mitchell Ownes in a 2006 New York Times article: “Frank challenged students to design a table so basic that it would retain its integrity whether sheathed in gold leaf, mica, parchment, split straw or painted burlap, or even left robustly unvarnished.” That kind of rigorous thinking created a simple silhouette that hides the genius of the design. We have adapted this simple form into countless variations for our clients. These pictures are to give a sense of style and possibilities.
All of our tables are custom-made.
