The table and the chairs are pictured in a photo of the dining room of Ernesto Basiles own private home, Villino Ida Basile in Palermo, built between 1903 and 1904. The plan of the house is based around the dinning room positioned in the center, the heart of the home, symbolizing the nucleus that holds and brings the family together. Ernesto Basile (1857-1932) was an Italian architect and an exponent of modernism and Art Nouveau. He became well-known because of his stylistic fusion of ancient, medieval and modern elements. He was one of the pioneers of Art Nouveau / Liberty Movement in Italy. Between 1899-1909 Basile started a collaboration with Vittorio Ducrot, for whom he created different furniture. His villa was decorated with furnishings created as prototypes for the future Ducrot collections.
