Many of these styles have been incorporated time and again on pieces made since their first use. Use them as a starting point and one possible indicator of age rather than making a conclusion based only on the foot style. This furniture foot style consists of a tapered cylinder that is separated from the leg by a turned ring. It is usually plain, even if the attached leg is fluted as shown in this example.
Equipped with a transparent glass top, the light base appears to be floating, combined with a wood panel, the naturalness seems to be complemented by elegant lightness. The Jimmy chair with its mesh seat sets a cheerful accent to the graphic austerity of the table. Technical changes and errors reserved. The color surfaces shown can differ in color and structure.
