New in today is a large goat skin – parchment drum table by New York based designer Karl Springer. It dates to the c.1970’s.
Karl Springer (1930 – 1991)
German born, French educated New York City based Springer is known for his lavish interpretations of Art Deco lines and the use of exotic skins and materials. His style encompassed the gamut from French Art Deco, to Asian and African motifs. His proficiency in materials is second only to his prolific designs, often customized for each client. Karl Springer is synonymous with quality, encouraging his workshop to strive for excellence rather than quick turnaround. His designs were executed in wood, metal, lacquer and lucite, with many of his most recognizable pieces covered in leather, parchment, shagreen, horn or reptile skins. The outstanding quality of his furniture has lead to a strong secondary resale market for Springer’s designs with all major auction houses and 20th century dealers now offering his work.
