Vintage Paul McCobb Travertine and Brass Coffee Table, USA, 1950s
A 20th century classic, Paul McCobb for Calvin Group's "Irwin Collection" coffee table features an oxidized brass base and an Italian travertine top. The sublime texture of the travertine top sits upon the deeply oxidized brass base (which could be polished to a shine), and includes risers at the end of its legs, for leveling. An incredibly simple and very successful design; it is rectilinear, unadorned, yet not overly-engineered or finished: there is nothing that could be removed from or added to this archetype of American 20th century design.
