Dakota Jackson African Satinwood Postmodern Convertible Lazy-Susan Dining Table

$6,90033% Off


This incredible Postmodern 72"-diameter dining table which would also make an amazing conference table by luxury design superstar Dakota Jackson features a circular African Satinwood top with two ebony inlaid stripes, adjustable rotating central rising platform in purple lacquered wood over four round lacquered cherrywood legs with contrasting purple enameled bands. The Original purchase price on this magnificent dining table was nearly $25,000 and thats in the early 1990s! Imagine what that cost would be today. This incredibly high quality table is built with exotic materials and mechanics and is monumental in size. The mixture of African Satinwood and Ebony Inlay combined with enameled wood is nothing short of extraordinary. The contrasting purple from the circular Lazy-Susan top, to edge banding and legs detail add a splash of 1980s Postmodern Memphis style. Buy this rare table for yourself or your client before someone else does - the amount of value in materials and craftsmanship is unbelievable. To operate the height adjustable central platform Lazy-Susan simple move the lever located under the table and voila! Now you can spin the central platform and entertain your guests while they amaze themselves with vintage technology. The chair we photographed with the table is a large Soft Pad Executive Chair by Charles Eames for Herman Miller. Regular dining chairs are not as large - so this table can seat 8 to 10 people comfortably. This large 72" dining table (or conference table) by Dakota Jackson would work great in a Postmodern, Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian 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, 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. About the designer: In a career spanning over four decades, Dakota Jackson has been one of the leading figures in American furniture design. Since the early seventies, when he emerged as a major contributor to the Art Furniture movement, each of his seminal designs has been a combination of exquisite craft, intriguing engineering, and original form. Measurements: H29" x W 72" x D 72" Condition: Very good vintage condition with light wear. The African Satinwood is in excellent condition with a smooth glossy French Polish. The purple edge has light wear including some light scuffs and nicks. The legs are in good condition with light wear including minor hard to see scuffs. Sturdy and sound - presents very well and ready for immediate use.
