Pierre Paulin (1927-2009)

Dining room suite
1973

This dining room suite is composed of a circu- lar table and six chairs, Élysée" models.
The cylindrical base made of cast aluminium covered with brownish-grey Nextel painting flares out to give shape to stylized waterlily petals.
The top of the table is made of a circular smoked-glass slab.
The seats and the backs of the chairs are made of thick circular beige suede cushion.
The painting has been restored at some points, as well as the cushions have been remade after the original mode.
