Mid-Century Modern Paolo Buffa Italian Walnut Dining Table with Brass Accents


Mid-Century Modern Italian walnut dining table with brass accents by Paolo Buffa is a study in elegance and simplicity. This piece would look fabulous with both modern and traditional interiors. Paolo Buffa was the son of an Italian painter. After graduating from the Politecnico in Milan in 1927, he worked for Gio Ponti. In 1928, he opened his own studio with architect, A. Cassi Rimelli, and they designed numerous homes and villas. Buffa was also a significant contributor to the design and architecture magazine "Domus." He was a prolific architect; however, his real passion was designing furniture. His works range from the traditional and ornate to the futuristic; all are of exceptional quality and refinement. From 1945-1955, BUFFA collaborated with Ico Parisi in designing exclusive yet simple and bare interiors for the European social elite. In 1947, BUFFA was invited, along with several other well-known Italian designers, to participate in the exhibition, The Modern Style of Furnishing, which celebrated the rebirth of inventiveness and elegance in Italian design. The exhibition was repeated in 1948 in Paris, where it was very well received.
