About

A classic and refined side table designed by Paolo Buffa. The glass top is supported by a circular wood frame, which stands on three beautifully hand carved wooden leaves.

Biography
After working briefly in Gio Ponti’s studio in the 1920s, Milanese architect and designer Paolo Buffa (1903-1970) quickly made a name for himself amongst the Milanese upper classes. His designs are original, beautifully executed and highly refined, combining the neoclassical with the functional and modern. Executed in only the most valuable materials, his designs are infused with Lombardy’s woodworking traditions. These characteristics make Buffa’s work highly collectable
