'Snail' Coffee or Side Table by Federico Armijo, 1960s Spain, Signed

$4,100Asking Price


This whimsical 1960s classic is the 'Snail' table by Federico Armijo for Sarreid Ltd, 1960s Spain, hand-carved from solid laminated pine. A surrealist sculpture accented with white paint and a glass top secured by a heavy brass fitting, signed underneath with the original sticker label. Fully restored and ready to be enjoyed immediately. This original Armijo Snail Table is a rare find and ideal to be used with its current glass as a side table or drinks table. Place it next to an armchair, lounge chair, club chair, sofa or loveseat and use it for cocktails or to hold an ashtray. Or change the glass out for a large size top and use it as a coffee table. This fun statement piece by Federico Armijo would work great in a Post-Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office.
