Googie Biomorphic Goodness! What a Great Step Coffee Table. Status: Also Available.
Wow, the cool stuff that ends up on C-list! And really, Thank God (or whatever) for C-list! I can barely remember a world without it.
So, very much like the Spider Leg table I wrote about yesterday, this table is
ostensibly available. I'm not anxious to see it gone but if someone really wants it I
can let it go. I really do have way too many tables!
I spotted this yesterday just a short while after it was posted. I called the seller (I'm
always surprised that people put their phone number out there like that) and
drove right out to pick it up. The winter has proven to be Slim Pickins on the list.
I'm so happy to see it pick back up. I can't wait for Spring!
The fella who sold me the table said that he found it in an alley. Someone THREW
THIS OUT!!! How sad. Good for the seller and good for me! This one is probably
going in the spare bedroom. I'm going to maybe clean up the top. Anybody know
anything about refinishing in Pickled Oak? I'm pretty sure that is what this finish is.
Unfortunately there isn't a maker mark or name on the bottom. There is the almost
ubiquitous (at least around St. Louis) "Lammerts Furniture" tag. This was a
furniture store, not a manufacturer. My Kipp Stewart / Stewart MacDougal chair
also has a Lammerts tag on it.
Not shown is the fitted glass tops for both levels. The top piece of glass is in fine
shape if a little scratched up but the bottom large piece has a "gouge" in it. I'm
thinking about taking the larger piece to a glass guy my mom uses to ask how
much it would cost to have a new piece cut. Maybe I'll have a piece of Mirror cut
