TABLE FOR BØRGE



I made this table to accompany the two Børge Mogensen chairs I’d just finished. It's an apartment sized little table for two. I chose Ash to match the color of the cane, and borrowed from the geometry and joinery of the chairs to design the legs. Table features a veneered top in Swedish ash, double bridle joinery on the legs and a caned shelf for napkins and the like. It’s a funny thing to design something for some other thing, like playing match maker for furniture. The table is an offering to a well loved designer, embodied in the replicas of his well known chair. I hope they like each other.
