The Petal® Table, designed by Richard Schultz in 1960, is featured in the May 2014 issue of Connecticut Cottages & Gardens magazine, which presents the very best in architecture, design, art and antiques, real estate, and entertaining to a highly influential readership in Connecticut, the Hamptons and New York. “Always in bloom, the Petal table is so special it is part of MoMA’s permanent collection,” writes author Mary Fitzgerald of Connecticut Cottages & Gardens.
"I was inspired by Queen Anne’s lace, a weed that grows near our house in Pennsylvania. Each cluster of flowers is supported on its own stem,” said Richard Schultz of the table’s design.
Fitzgerald continues: “Individual teak petals expand and contract with the seasons to prevent warping while the ‘stem’ is formed from powder-coated stainless steel.”
In addition to the Petal Coffee Table, the collection also includes the Petal End Table and Petal Dining Table.
