This design pushes the refinement of an elite mid century Baker cocktail table beyond even the period version. The joinery, and particularly the compound miter unifying the legs, is handwork at the highest level and correctly celebrated with a brass cap. The delicate rim boasts five chamfered edges, and bird-like legs are abstract sculpture tapering to a long tail. Hexagonal brass feet are a couture touch.
This is a statement cocktail table designed to anchor a setting. The negative space shows off the Dana's sculptural character, but the greatest advantage of glass is its ability to capitalize on a fine rug. The round form works well in traffic, and the size is usually suitable for sofas over 90 inches.
