Monument Table by Lawton Mull
Made to order in New York City
Walnut, Oak or Elm with white or gray limestone
Of all the tables we have designed, the Monument is our favorite to make. The elemental forms, notched together with only their organic beauty as ornament, introduce a sense of timelessness in a room. We want these tables to have the surprising but inevitable presence of a dark, still pond in a mossy forest clearing.
We take pride in the fact that they are made by hand here in New York. We cut, sand and finish the wooden tops in our workshop from wood that is sustainably milled in the northeast United States (and when opportunity allows from antique slabs). We work with a stone cutter in the neighborhood with whom we have a long collaboration. It’s “slow” furniture, if you will, built with attention, and to last a long time.
This large rectangular coffee table can serve equally well as a bench or daybed. The wood top is an expressive, single or book-matched slab of walnut. It sits securely in four hand-carved solid limestone blocks.
Size and price will depend on availability of wood and stone, and because of the uniqueness of the materials, no two will ever be the same. Also fabricated in square or circular profiles.
The table pictured is 78” wide x 41” deep x 15 1⁄2” high.
