Paolo Barracheli Roman Deco S.P.A coffee table

Paolo Barracheli for Italian manufacturer Roman Deco S.P.A coffee table of burl walnut, coromandel & brass, 1980’s ca, Italian.

This coffee table has been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina and it is ready to use.

The combination of rich toned woods such as burl walnut & coromandel with a high polish finish and accented with solid brass details are features of Jean Claude Mahey Designs, the attributed designer.

This elegant large sculptural coffee table, with its Neoclassical inspiration, luxury veneers & high gloss finish, would suit a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Brutalist, 70`s Glamour, Post Modern, Industrial, Traditional or Contemporary.

The interlocking pattern of the two types of veneers complements the sculptural cuboid legs.

The attention grabbing legs of this table are made up of 3 cuboids. There are two external coromandel pillars placed at each side of an internal, slightly lower in height, polished solid brass pillar. With this positioning, the brass pillar peaks out from the coromandel in several places while the table is seen vertically or from the top. This creates depth and a very sculptural composition. Each coromandel pillar is finished with a solid polished brass square shaped cap.

The top wooden surface is cutout from the legs, creating depth and an sculptural effect. This shape is highlighted by an interlocking geometric pattern of coromandel in a dark tone, on the main background of burl walnut which is a lighter tone. There is the original high gloss lacquer finish on the wooden surfaces adding elegance & reflections to the piece.

Under the top there is a square section polished solid brass frame running between the 4 legs. This adds reflections, unifies the design and supports the top which is screwed in place.

This vintage coffee table is in very good condition. The frame is sound & strong. The solid brass surfaces are in very good condition with no major marks and a warm patina in places in line with age. The highly polished wood veneer is in very good condition with no cracks or scratches and only a couple of minute dents on the top and minor marks at the bottom of a couple of the legs as expected for its age & wear (as photographed) .

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. The table would be wrapped in bubble wrap/foam and an outer layer of card. This table would fit easily in a box for safe shipping.

Additional dimensions:

The solid brass square detail at the corner top of the legs is Width: 8 cm, Depth: 8 cm.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
