$1,995per set

About

Fabulous pair of Mid-Century Modern black lacquered Parsons style side tables. One (1) square and one (1) rectangle. In beautiful vintage condition. These have been completely refinished and repainted and a urethane coat has been added for durability. There are minor imperfections under the finish consistent with use. Please see photos, circa 1960s-1970s.   What a terrific two-some!! Just look at these wonderful black painted side tables!! Parson’s style is such a Classic design that dates to 1930 when French designer Jean-Michael Frank decided he was going to design a table that was simple enough that it could fit into any home regardless of style preference. Contemporary, Mid-Century Modern, or modern, Parson’s style tables just work anywhere. This set is comprised of one square table and one more narrow rectangle side table. They would be gorgeous in a living room or a sitting area, but they are versatile and stylish enough to look fabulous anywhere! The original Parson’s table was designed in New York City at the Parson’s School of Design by French designer Jean-Michael Frank in the 1930s. There is an article that states, "Frank challenged students to design a table so basic that it would retain its integrity whether sheathed in gold leaf, mica, parchment, split straw or painted burlap, or even left robustly unvarnished. What grew out of Frank's sketches and the students' participation was initially called the T-square table. Parsons tables are often intended for use as modern or contemporary furniture, and their striking design has made them popular as coffee tables, dining tables, side tables, and occasional tables. No need to think about it any longer, you need to make them yours!! Measures: Square table: • Height 24 inches • Width 29.75 inches • Depth 9.75 inches • Weight 31.4 pounds Narrow table: • Height 24 inches • Width 29.75 inches • Depth 17.75 inches • Weight 25.9 pounds Boxed/crated size: • Height 36 inches • Width 35 inches • Depth 35 inches • Boxed weight 75 pounds • Crated weight 135 pounds.
