A refined side/coffee table designed by Milanese architect Paolo Buffa. The glass top is supported by a kidney shaped wood frame, which stands on four hand carved wooden leaves. An exceptional piece of craftsmanship in the 1940s decorative Italian style. The table is in good original condition with a nice patina. After working briefly in Gio Ponti’s studio in the 1920s, Buffa (1903-1970) made a name for himself amongst the Milanese upper classes. His designs were original – combining neoclassicism and Lombardy’s woodworking traditions with modern sensibilities.
