Everywhere I look

is this dashing black lacquer and steel table by Jansen...

in the entrance hall-cum-dining room of Pierre and Suzy Delbeée's Avenue Foch apartment (see more courtesy of the Aesthete here)

this kitchen in France, 1950s...


in the dining room of the Prince and Princess Michelangelo Caetani...


and today, in the living room of decorator Sandra Nunnerley courtesy of NY Social Diary

Four very different rooms and it looks smashing in all of them. Now that's good design.

Wonderful furniture design allows for it to look great in a variety of interiors. Great pick of the Jansen table to show this.

It's such a beautiful classican piece. Just wonderful!

It is the most classic table, no? It's called the Royale. I saw my first one in the apartment of arts writer Rosamond Bernier. It rolled right out of the kitchen into the living room for lunch! So beautiful! I would give my teeth to own one, frankly.

Ahh! wheels too, It does look perfect in all 4 settings. That kitchen is a bit distracting to me-but I embrace it all. G

EMILY-


This is a wonderful post, like design lesson for all.

How chic and elegant this table looks in each setting...graphic and unpretentious, timeless and versatile. Let's hope you start a trend.

Those wheels just push it over the edge of perfection, don't they?

Aesthete, who needs teeth anyway? Dentures were quite the thing for a time in the 18th century - maybe time to bring them back? How many of the Royale are out there, I wonder?

There is one on 1st Dibs for a mere $27,500 from V W Home. A mouthful of new teeth would cost more, at least from my dentist. I just had a crown and I certainly would have liked to spend that money on something lovely.

Now that's a design investment you can sink your teeth into. Wonder what this table cost "in the day"? I think it's done much better than my 401K!

So nice to meet you tonight, hope I didn't talk your ear off (me & white wine, we go way back...).

Will definitely check out your blog going forward!

Somethings are just timeless, this is one. Seeing it placed in different homes over a span of 60 years and never looking out dated.

I have a small tray table, with legs like this that I found at Bergdorf Goodman many years ago and still love it so.

A little late in reading this but here's another 'Royale' for you

http://www.roseuniacke.com/shop/a-steel-gilt-and-lacquer-royal-dining-table-by-jansen/

Delbee first designed the table in the late 30's for a client and subsequently re-issued it in the early 70's with the Jansen range of furniture.

I'm going for a trawl through you back issues!
