Unique Side Table Warren McArthur Stainless Steel Frame, 1934-1935


A side table by the Warren McArthur Corporation from the mid-1930s with a stainless steel frame and lacquered wood top. Stamped with a Warren McArthur Corporation Rome, New York earliest corporate decal and a Style No. 3727-1. Union Carbide commissioned this table with 14 other McArthur pieces in stainless steel for the terrace of a summer home in Glen Cove N.Y.. This table is unique. A photo shoot of a stainless steel awning frame for a terrace was the reason for the commission of this unique grouping of furniture. Union carbide specified that the frames should be made from stainless steel instead of Warren McArthur standard material anodized aluminum to emphasis the use of stainless steel in the awning . The assembly and installation of the awning along with a complete documentation of the Warren McArthur furnishings were presented in an article in Union Carbide's journal on stainless steel Electromet published in November, 1936. A single installation view from the same photo session was used by the Warren McArthur Corporation as the frontice photo of an advertising pamphlet produced by Ned Jordan for the Warren McArthur Corporation in 1935. The McArthur pamphlet makes no mention of this unique use of stainless steel instead starts off with "SMART NEW WARREN MCARTHUR CREATIONS IN ANODIC ALUMINUM....VIRTUALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE AND UNTARNISHABLE.. The brochure opens to showcase several pieces of McArthur furniture none of which were used for this terrace project. The table is in good condition. The frame and top show wear consistent with age but no structural damage. There were 15 pieces commissioned in stainless steel for this terrace: A pair of "Light Lounge" chairs, a pair of Arizona Biltmore lounge chairs with a single ottoman, pair of armchairs, two smoking stands, a library table, a slat back 3-seat sofa, and a nest of three tables. A smoking stand from this grouping is in the collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh.
