Richard Schultz Redwood Petal Dining Table for Knoll Circa 1960s


This is a rare vintage California Redwood petal table designed by Richard Shultz for Knoll. This is a vintage production dating from 1960s. This table is made of solid California old growth redwood beautiful and sure to be a conversation piece. Each petal has its own unique redwood grain and pattern. The color of the wood is deep, rich and gorgeous. This table would be a charming addition to any room, whether as a dining table or as a kitchen table. Designed to be outside this table will also look stunning indoors. This Petal Dining Table by Richard Schultz for Knoll circa 1960s is a rare version in Redwood with the old Knoll Label still attached. 

Richard Schultz cites Queen Anne’s Lace as his inspiration for this delicate outdoor table with its flower-like top sprouting from the elegant pedestal base. Each “petal” expands and contracts independently, ensuring stability in changing weather. This table was designed be outside but could work well inside too. Perfect for a small kitchen nook. 

The tables were introduced by Knoll in Los Angeles in 1960 and were immediately made part of the MoMA design collection.

Richard Shultz said “I designed the Petal Table to accompany the Bertoia Chairs. The tops on the tables are made of eight petals, which are mounted on a beautifully crafted cast aluminum spider.

 It was inspired by Queen Anne’s lace, a weed that grows near our house in Pennsylvania. Each cluster of flowers is supported on its own stem. By making a table in this manner there is no need for a ring support, and each petal is independent, which allows the table to expand and contract with the weather."

Dimensions: 42C x 28 H.

It is in excellent restored condition. We love this table as a kitchen table, a game table and one of the most charming pieces for a home.
