This long and sleek coffee table has an identical and indistinguishable base that matches the PK-31 series by Poul Kjaerholm for E. Kold Christensen. While we have never seen another example of this coffee table, it is possible that this was a custom order, perhaps to match a PK-31 sofa, loveseat or set of PK-31 chairs. The age of materials and construction would indicate this is not a new production item from Fritz Hansen - rather original early example by E. Kold Christensen.
Whether this was a short lived small batch production piece or a custom order for someone who wanted a matching base coffee table to their PK31 Sofa, one thing is for certain: it is rare and unique, and if you have or plan on getting a PK31 Sofa or Armchair, this would be the perfect coffee table to pair it with, and you would probably be the only person with that exact combination.
For designers and architects, consider this table and a PK-31 sofa for a design magazine cover worthy photo. Would also pair wonderfully with the PK22 Lounge chairs, PK80 daybed, or also designs by Preben Fabricius, Jorgen Kastholm, Jorgen Lund and Ole Larsen. Best suited for a modern home, such as Mid-Century Modern, but can also work in a contemporary home or office. Durable enough for commercial applications such as a hotel lobby, creative office suite, designer showroom or retail boutique.
We have opted not to refinish the top or the base and to keep this in original condition, due to its rarity. While this would be the preference for collectors and the light patina is very desirable as it is light and even throughout, if you prefer a clean "newer" look, contact us for a refinishing quote.
Very good vintage condition, light and even patina throughout metal base. Rosewood top has light wear commensurate with age and use.
