Modern Classic Rectangular Dining Table
This style of table, where the legs are the same width as the thickness of the top, is known as a “Parsons” table, after a design by Jean-Michel Frank and his students at the Parsons School of Design in Paris in the 1930’s. Charles Shackleton has adapted this design by including a very minimal, but complementary, fluted decoration to create a table that reintroduces the human hand to the age of the machine.
