Custom Memphis Coffee Table by Steve Chase from Chase Designed Home, circa 1980Automaton Vintage Furnishings
Invest in a piece of design history with this Memphis style coffee table by Steve Chase. Recently procured from an extraordinary coastal cliff top home in Laguna Beach which was custom designed in it's entirety by prolific Southern California based designer Steve Chase.
Work on the house began in the early 1980s and was expanded and completed by the end of that decade. Chase performed as the interior designer as well as being involved through the construction phase from start to finish. Every piece of furniture, built-in cabinetry, millwork, hearth and shelving was custom-made to fit precisely to the home, featuring a generous amount of Lucite, which chase was well-known for incorporating in his work, including an impressive three inch thick solid Lucite banister running up a curved stairwell. The owners developed a close friendship with Chase and they travelled together on numerous occasions.
This custom designed coffee table, originally part of the exquisite pink office which as you can see in the photos provided, was uniquely Chase. This piece embodies Chase's signature design aesthetic, as described in his own words; deliberate, unexpected and with touch of humour. Featuring a base comprised of three sculptural supports of pink granite fabricated to a circular chrome plinth with a brushed aluminium sphere in the centre. The base supports a full bullnose edge piece of round glass.
So get your hands on a fragment of an incredible story with this time honoured coffee or cocktail table you can regale about with your guests for years to come. This piece can be used in a living room, den, office or bedroom. It would also be an Apt choice for a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, conference room, executive office, corporate reception or in a luxe clothing emporium.
