About the Artist:
Karl Springer was originally born in Germany in 1931, later immigrating to New York City in 1957. He started designing his own furniture when working at Lord and Taylor but was discovered by the Duchess of Windsor who became his first patron.
Springer is influenced by Art Deco style, he loved the simple forms and using exotic luxury materials. A stickler for quality, he wanted to only create the best furniture as possible. “Quality, that is what is most important to me. The integrity of surfaces, the elements of restraint – these make luxury more piquant. Everything depends in the end on uncompromising workmanship and rigid control, all in the pursuit of quality. As for me, I allow nothing to represent me that is not my best effort.” Because of this quest of high quality work it fused itself into his work with a keen sense of scale and proportion.
In 1991, Springer passed away in his home due to lymphoma. Since his true focus was the quality of furniture, this table and chairs is not just a beautiful piece of furniture, but also quality that is above and beyond.
This dining set is one of hundreds of pieces of furniture that are available at our location in Grandview! Come in today and see the full collection.
