Gustav Stickley Hexagonal Table

The table is designed to go along with Gustav’s Morris chair. Both are living room pieces designed right around 1901. The table is obviously six sided, that alone makes it stand out from most rounded tables. Another feature that makes this table special is the leather covering, it adds a texture and tone that goes nicely with the deep toned oak used for the rest of the table.  Like the Morris chair the leather is held to the table by oversized tacks. The tacks cast subtle shifting shadows through the room, and this architectural play of light and shade was one of Stickley’s favorite visual effects.
