tablescape III




Inspired by the Eames’ philosophy of “select and arrange,” where the home becomes a fluid and experimental collage of objects that adapt and change over time, Tablescapes provide the foundation for a similar approach to living with objects. Tablescapes III is a round coffee table and the third piece in the series. Coloured pine and walnut forms serve as integrated containers and raised platforms for objects and vignettes, and slabs of marble offer a resting place for a hot teapot or mug. By selecting and arranging objects along the surfaces, the console shelf and table transform into landscapes of personal souvenirs, books, and ephemera.
