Paolo Buffa Occasional Table Buffa, Italy, 1940s


A refined side or coffee table designed by Milanese architect Paolo Buffa. The glass top is supported by a kidney shaped wood frame, which stands on four hand-carved wooden leaves. An exceptional piece of craftsmanship in the 1940s decorative Italian style. The table is in good original condition with a nice patina. After working briefly in Gio Ponti’s studio in the 1920s, Buffa (1903-1970) made a name for himself amongst the Milanese upper classes. His designs were original, combining Neoclassicism and Lombardy’s woodworking traditions with modern sensibilities.
