Arguably the finest apartment building in New York, William Bottomley's 1931 River House was the catalyst for what would become the fashionable Upper East Side. A rare balance of Art Deco and Regency Modern design, the building inspired Bill Sofield to design an original Coffee Table with that same balance.
The marble top is a stepped serpentine shape, a subtle nod to the elaborately stylized Georgian looks of the 1930s, cut by Italian artisans to fit inside a cast bronze frame. By contrast, the reeded legs, ever-so-slightly concave at the knee, draw on the natural flavor of the Art Deco. The shape of the top lends itself to a high traffic area. Perfect between facing loveseats in a small space.
