This rare and exquisite coffee table, designed and crafted by Fontana Arte in Italy in 1952, is a true masterpiece of mid-century modern design. Fontana Arte, a prestigious Italian design firm renowned for its innovative use of glass and elegant designs, has created a piece that effortlessly combines form and function. The table features a stunning oval glass top with a beveled rim, offering a sleek and sophisticated surface that enhances the surrounding décor. The glass top is meticulously crafted to provide both visual and tactile appeal, reflecting Fontana Arte’s dedication to quality and aesthetic precision.


Supporting the glass top are two stained walnut feet, each expertly shaped and finished to complement the elegance of the glass. These feet are designed to be completely loose, with the glass top sliding in and being held in place purely by tension and gravity. This ingenious design not only underscores the table’s minimalist beauty but also showcases the innovative engineering and thoughtfulness behind its creation. Add to that 2 beautiful sculptural feet with curves and angles to show top notch woodworking.


The table has been preserved in its fully original condition, showcasing a fantastic patina that speaks to its rich history and careful maintenance. This patina adds a layer of character and authenticity to the piece, making it a valuable addition to any collection. For those who prefer a more refined look, our atelier offers refinishing services upon request, ensuring the table can be tailored to suit individual preferences while retaining its original charm.


This rare coffee table is a celebrated piece, featured in various Fontana Arte books and catalogues. Its unique design, combining the natural beauty of stained walnut with the clarity and elegance of beveled glass, makes it a standout item that exemplifies the best of Italian mid-century modern design. For collectors and enthusiasts, this table is not only a functional piece of furniture but also a work of art that embodies the timeless elegance and innovation of Fontana Arte.
