Custom T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings Walnut Cocktail Table

About

This simple walnut veneered table was part of a full-house interior custom-designed by Robsjohn-Gibbings on the UES in 1937-1938. Fully document with a letter from the family and many in situ photos of the table amidst the more elaborate neoclassical Baroque pieces that comprised the majority of the commission. Less showy than most of the furniture, Gibbings still had the rare talent of using proportion to let three simple boards carry a load of design weight. This simple chic design is almost a prototype of the spare style Gibbings will become known for in the following three decades,.
