Jean-Michel Frank art deco table brings 'minimalist luxury' to Paris sale

The latest news from the art deco furniture markets includes the upcoming sale of this rare Jean-Michel Frank table in Paris, tomorrow (March 14).

French interior designer Jean-Michel Frank (1895-1941) remains best-known for his minimalist interiors, usually decorated with plain-lined furniture.

This piece reflects Frank's minimalist leanings, and also his use of luxury materials.

The art deco table has a crafted patinated bronze-brown circular marble surface, and its marble top is dug-out to fit into the mounting base of its legs.

Frank's table measures 62cm in height and 35cm in depth, and carries a €40,000-60,000 presale estimate.

This may seem like a lot for a small table, but it's less surprising if you consider Jean-Michel Frank's past auction successes.

Big sales have included this Jean-Michel Frank club armchair. At first glance, this chair seems as innocuous as the marble table. Yet it sold for $168,000 at Sotheby's in 2005.

It will therefore be interesting to see how his table does in the Paris auction, tomorrow.
