Enrique Garcel Tessellated Horn Waterfall Nightstands, Colombia, circa 1970Automaton Vintage Furnishings
Exquisitely executed nightstands by Colombian designer Enrique Garcel. These pieces have expansive tops which transition smoothly into waterfall ends and subtly curve at the bottom. These exceptionally well-crafted side tables or nightstands feature a surface of inlaid tessellated horn which embodies a natural sheen that adds instant luxury to any space. The colors of the horn blend beautifully together which include shades of caramel, taupe, russet, raw umber, chestnut and ivory. The nightstands are set atop of a recently refinished plinth base.
This elegant pair of side tables would be a great used together or individually around the house in a classic or contemporary dining room, living room, den, family room, office or bedroom. They would also be an apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium. Would work great in rooms with design styles similar to Karl Springer, Paul Evans and James Mont.
