Both a design gallery and the home to one of Chicago’s most passionate furniture collectors, The Gilded Terrace beckons visitors to explore their passion for decor, while demonstrating that any lovely item can be used in a ‘livable’ way. The setting is an eclectically decorated apartment within a 1920’s pre-war high-rise. The collection - some of which is available on Apartment Therapy - is a mixed display of Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, Chinoiserie & Oriental-chic, among various other period styles.
Offered here is the opportunity to own a pair of impossibly rare end tables, handcrafted by French design house Maison Charles et Fils. These tables feature brass finished bronze legs stylized in an Art Deco or Art Nouveau manner. The curved and beveled glass tops are in excellent shape for the age. The tables are 26" square, and 22" tall.
Please note, I also have the matching coffee table available for sale for individuals interested in a complete set of tables.
Discerning collectors will know that similar to Maison Jansen and Maison Bagues, pieces created by Maison Charles are featured in some of the world's most significant houses and palaces. These specific tables were once displayed in a prominent Lake Forest, IL estate before being moved to Chicago.
