Ellipse coffee table

(Ref. 1949)

The elegant ‘Ellipse‘ ash coffee table is the latest addition to Edward’s Sussex Collection. It is defined by its clean elegant curves that appear simple and natural on the eye, yet complex to design, shape and sculpt.

Flowing curves and dramatic shadows

It was exciting to see this one develop from drawing board and workshop to finished product, and it is a piece that really complements is new surroundings. We love this type of commissioned project, where Ed is able to design and produce something special with a certain amount of freedom, and of course, featuring his trade-mark curves. It also gives our excellent makers plenty to get their teeth into.

Work in progress in the workshop: perfecting and finishing the sculptural curves.

Shown here in ash with a white oil finish the bevelled glass edge is fully revealed at each end of the table, where the elliptical line is broken and dips into a curved motif that forms two of the legs. The two remaining legs flow into the convex diamond-shaped base, that is also beautifully curved and shaped.
