This incredible set of end tables seems to defy logic and their simple beauty merely adds to the intrigue. Attributed to the genius of Leon Rosen for The Pace Collection they are comprised of a squircle of brass plated rectangular tube that sets directly on the floor with two brass plated round tubes coming straight up from the center of opposing ends with a hole in the middle. The glass tops set on the top of these tubes. Then, a brass plated disc with a threaded rod attached sticks through the glass and screws into the hole securing the tops. There is rubber gasket on each side of the tops. The glass is also in the same squircle (it is a word and a shape – look it up!) shape of the base with a small ogee edge. These tables would be the perfect foil to an ornate over-the-top Hollywood Regency sofa. Or blend in just right with a pair of mid-century modern club chairs.
The Pace Collection was founded by Irving and Leon Rosen in New York City as a high-end contemporary furniture company which was in business from 1960 to 2001. They offered their fine furniture and services to the contract interior design trade. Their designs were purposefully and distinctly different from Knoll, Herman Miller, Steelcase and other renowned contract furniture companies. Their line of furniture was known for their rich and exotic wood veneers, high-gloss finishes, and shiny metals. Most pieces were made in limited editions or specifically for their elite customers.
