Jad Attal, Modern Specialist: “T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings was a classicist in his design vocabulary, imbuing ancient Greek and Roman motifs in his pieces. But what could be more classical than the American Southwest mesas? Our light walnut Mesa table brings a grandness into any home. That’s why this is one of my favorite pieces in our sale.”
