Dining Room Table Quest
Monday, August 24th, 2009
The top is made of reclaimed azobe wood with a half found metal band all around the edges, the cast iron industrial base is American 1930’s-40’s. Pretty amazing right? Jurg artfully refinishes or fabricates most of his furniture from unique items found in Europe or the US. I also saw some pretty amazing 1930’s American chaise lounges on wheels that he’d lacquered a gray/green. And I drooled over an original George Nelson ball bubble pendant light from the 1950’s.
Back to “the one”, the part I’m leaving out is the price. It’s $9500. Yep. You read correctly. NO, it does not have inlaid diamonds. You think you’d be buying precious jewels for that price. I went from being super stoked that I found something I thought was incredible, to being sad, really sad. But Jurg is so cool and asked me to give him a budget and he’d see what he could make for me within my price range. So we’ll see, I think in my budget the only thing Jurg could make me would be a Barbie sized table!
