Mid Century Modern in 'Promises of Paradise'

I'm reorganis- ing my workroom, and so, am thinking about furniture these days.

On my wish-list would be this lovely table. What a gloriously decadent bit of tool storage this would be. Though it's likely that such loveliness would lead me to reserve it for books and other less hardy fare.

It is an end table by designer George Farkas produced in 1949 and it part of the show 'Promises of Paradise' at The Harn Museum of Art in Gainesville FL. Running October 11, 2008 until January 25, 2009. The focus is mid-century modern design with an emphasis on Florida.

The show includes furniture, fashion, photographs, printed ephemera and architectural renderings.

Very nice table... I love the symmetry... I have been desk hunting the past few weeks and I have been secretly hankering my own desk design... This certainly draws up wanted inspiration...
