Description

Offered here is the Saguaro Cactus Table designed by Lawrence Laske in 1993 and produced and sold by KnollStudios. With a base shaped in wood to resemble or remind us of the saguaro cactus and a gorgeous natural black slate table top this table is an awesome product of the 1990’s. After obtaining this table we found the slate top had a small nick in the edge so my husband and partner has painstakingly restored the nick with slate dust and a little epoxy, used ooo steel wool on the top to smooth it, and added a coat of stone sealer to keep it looking wonderful (the photos show it but by the eye it is literally invisable). After photographing we also discovered the tag on the bottom of the table says it is a Toothpick Cactus Table. Now, looking at it we all know it is the Saguaro Cactus Table. We have come up with several theories of how this table has the wrong tag:

  1. Bad day on the assembly line and someone put the wrong tag on the table.
  2. Someone purchased both a Toothpick Cactus Table and a Saguaro Cactus Table, liked the top from one better on the other and changed them. (the tag FYI is on the underside of the table top.)
  3. Someone purchased a Saguaro Cactus Table with a slate top, broke the slate top, requested a new top and received one from a Toothpick Cactus Table.
  4. Purchased the table, table didn’t have a tag, requested a tag, received the wrong one.

At the present time, I have placed a call to Knoll Studios to see if they have any explanation; however, I’m really not thinking they will. Does this make the table more valuable? Does it matter? You be the judge.

Perfect little side table. Very sculptural.
