CONANT BALL NORSEMATES ACCENT TABLE | $465 The Norsemates furniture line from Conant Ball was elbowed out of the limelight by its sibling, the Modernmates collection.

The panels are made using ash veneer on the front and back over layers of maple. Each panel is connected with a polypropylene mesh fabric, allowing flexible positioning of the panels. The FWS was in production from 1946 to 1955, retired and then reintroduced by Herman Miller in 1994. This piece is from that second generation of production. Open screen dimensions are 60″L x 2-1/4″D x 68″H, and 10″W in the folded position.

The cane is in perfect condition and we thoroughly cleaned each chair, choosing not to restore them and spoil their natural patina. Dimensions are 19-1/2″W x 17-1/2″D x 31″H + 18-1/2″ seat height. Sold as a set. There is one additional chair available.
CASSINA ‘CAB 413’ LEATHER ARMCHAIRS | $995 EACH The Cab 413 armchair was designed by Mario Bellini in 1977 and made in Italy by Cassina. The Cassina website describes them this way: “Cab was the first-ever chair to feature a free-standing leather structure, inspired by how our skin fits over our skeleton. The upholstery consists of sixteen pieces of saddle leather. Individually die-cut, they then undergo fourteen discrete procedures, again by hand. The pieces are sewn together only when their outer edges have been trimmed to ensure a perfect fit. Once assembled, the cover is attached to the chair’s steel skeleton and held in place by means of a zipper fastening, as in a bespoke tailored garment.” We are offering four chairs in a natural finish that has darkened as they’ve aged. Three of the four are in excellent condition with few signs of wear. The fourth has medium patina characterized by dark areas in the leather. We have cleaned and conditioned all of them.
RARE LANE ACCLAIM DROPLEAF TABLE | $695 The Acclaim collection from Lane Furniture, as we’ve reported numerous times on this site, was wildly popular and generated dozens of pieces. Some are readily found while others are more obscure. This dropleaf accent/console table falls into the latter category. The centerpiece is classic Acclaim: a practical table with a large drawers and signature black-tipped legs. But it really takes flight with the wing-like leaves that lift and lock firmly in place to create a longer piece. This table is fully restored. Dimensions are 28″W (41-3/4″ with both leaves up) x 21-3/4″D x 23-1/4″H.
