Octagonal Table and Chairs
A Lutyens Furniture & Lighting Product
Lutyens used this set of table and chairs, in at least two projects. This particular version was designed for a building in London’s Pall Mall in 1928.
The design of this set of furniture is very characteristic both of Lutyens’s delight in ‘games’ in the way the chairs fit flush with each other as well as with the sides of the table, and his love and manipulation of geometric shapes as evidenced by the interlocking circles forming the chair backs. When closed, the table and chairs resemble a giant, ornate music box!
The octagonal table is made from walnut with a panelled veneered top designed in such a way that the grain direction of the surface describes the surface underneath. Each chair, with its fretted back and front panel is also in walnut with a cane seat.
Whilst working very well as a set, the chairs can also be used as stand alone “consoles” against a wall.
The Octagonal table and chairs can also be made in Oak, Teak or Cedar with a slatted tabletop and chair seats for outdoor use.
