Tiled Table Top
This may appear to be a typical mid-century mosaic table at first glance, but it is in fact something quite extraordinary. Each of the 49 panels decorating its top are mint condition individual enamel-on-copper tiles, hand-made by a famed Danish artist named Bodil Eje (1930-2006). Made expressly for sale at the venerable design super-store Illums Bolighus in Copenhagen in the 1950s. The colors range from cobalt, indigo, purple, forest green and hints of lavender, accented with shots gold and of course copper metallic accents. The tiles are set into a rosewood surface on a bronze base (with rosewood tipped legs). 24" x 43" x 19"

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
