Welcome to July! It feels like just yesterday we were shoveling snow so it is a bit hard to believe that the 4th of July is almost upon us. But here we are and today's Piece of the Day celebrates the influence Frank Lloyd Wright, who in 1991 was named by the American Institute of Architects as "the greatest American architect of all time."
Wright believed in the concept of organic design, a contextual approach that takes into account relationship between the site and the building and the needs of the client and marries them all together. In the same vein, the architectural lines of our Reader's Table table unify and balance the span of its nine-foot-long cherry top.
Tom Moser originally developed this piece for university libraries, and its construction is designed to withstand rigorous daily use, while satisfying the classic aesthetics of institutions such as UCLA and Lawrenceville School. Each solid cherry leg measures over three inches square and is recessed to provide comfortable leg room for up to ten people. Paired with our Reader's Chair, this table will add a sense of strength and stature to your home.
