Table, 1904

The table’s strong graphic quality comes through in the square, gridded “screens” beneath each side of the tabletop, the inlay in the center of the table, and the white filler rubbed into the blackened wood to make the pattern of the woodgrain pop. The silver-plated feet are like punctuation at the end of a sentence.
