Estimated Ship Date On or Before 08/08


The Borghese table by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance for French design brand La Chance is inspired by the umbrella pines at the Villa Borghese gardens in Rome. The characteristic network of branches is translated as a graphic steel framework supporting a trio of solid wood tops. The designer’s preference for organic shapes readily translates as a standout modernist statement-piece. The tables can be combined to create a larger composition and adapt to any space. Each leg is made of lazer cut steel sheets. An artisan then bends each piece before he manually wields them together to create the intrigate network of branches. A thermic treatment is applied to the structure to create the rich and slightly grainy deep black finish. All wooden surfaces are sanded to obtain a subtle 3 touch and visually strenghen the structure of the solid wood.

La Chance gives a contemporary interpretation of the ornamental and decorative French furniture tradition rooted in the Art Deco period. La Chance works with high qualified artisans to offer the best quality products.
