Ceramic Tile Top Coffee Table , 1960s
W 162 / H 50 / D 62 cm
Large Mid-Century coffee or side table featuring handmade ceramic tiles supported by a chrome frame.
The original Spanish glazed tiles mounted on the tabletop were produced in flamed hues ranging from dark marron to a sienna yellow / orange and Bordeaux, the tiles are embedded in a charcoal grey enameled steel case, the chrome metal base and banding gives the table its airy touch and modernist timeless elegance.
The table makes a strong statement and is a guaranteed conversation piece, the quality of the material is top notch as witnessed by the very high weight of the piece. Belgium ceramic artist Julien Belarti (a pun based on the Italian word Bella Arte) was famous for the bright multicolored ceramic top tables in many variations.
