We fell in love with this gorgeous Hollywood Regency console sofa table and had to get it for the shop so we could offer it to you. Made by Maitland-Smith, providers of fine home furnishings and circa 1980s-1990s. It is comprised of a tessellated marble veneer in a fabulous rosy-rusty creamy coloration. It has a brass inlay in its edges and the front is scalloped and flows gently into an airfoil or wing shape for the u-shape’s legs creating a stunning silhouette. This table is extremely solid and well-constructed which is only outdone by its beauty. That beauty is subtle and sneaks up on you taking center stage upon examination of its intricacies. You must make it yours.
Maitland Smith, currently a division of Heritage Home Group, was founded in 1979 by a well-known London antique dealer and designer. Originally located in Hong Kong to reproduce 18th-century furniture and accessories such as Chippendale mahogany dining chairs and other finely carved and hand-crafted pieces. Use of unique materials i.e. bronze, brass, porcelain, coromandel, wrought iron, leather, shagreen, lacquer, and eggshell required sourcing efforts throughout Southeast Asia. In 1981 their home base shifted from Hong Kong to the Philippines where they built their own manufacturing operation. This change allowed for a broader product offering, greater freedom of creativity to their designers, and better control over their product resulting in higher quality pieces. They were able to add more modern designs to their offerings and additional unique materials such as stone mosaic, rattan, coconut shell, faux tortoise shell, mother of pearl and many other unusual mediums. Each one of their hand-made pieces is a work of art.
