French designer Jacques Adnet created a furniture collection in the late 1940s in collaboration with ceramicist Jacques Lenoble. This table, made of solid oak, features Lenoble's polychromatic ceramic tiles with geometric patterns as the table top. Jacques Adnet was one of the most significant designers in France from 1930 to 1960. His works were exhibited in all the Salons of the Societé des Artistes Décorateurs ( Society of Decorative Artists) from the 1930s. Every decade he created a new specific style : in the 1930s he was famous for metal and parchment furniture, in the 1940s and early 1950s for a collection in oak, and in the late 1950s and the 1960s he designed furniture covered with leather. Jacques Lenoble came from a long line of ceramicists: he was the son of Emile Lenoble and the grandson of the great ceramicist Ernest Chaplet. Unique piece.
