Jupiter’s Side Table

Mac Collins
£2,300
Jupiter’s Side Table in Minerva Red by Mac Collins was inspired by Mac’s residency at Holkham Hall, facilitated by The New Craftsmen. The side table (and its counterpart, Jupiter’s Chair) was initially inspired by the story of a two-thousand-year-old Roman statue of Jupiter found at Holkham that, through the evolution of ideas and the passage of time, had been displaced from its original position at the core of the estate. Though the side table is a contemporary piece, the deep lustre of the waxed finish pays homage to the traditional furniture pieces found in the hall. Both the table and the chair have been produced in collaboration with the talented furniture maker Daniel Bradley.

Process

The sidetable is constructed with solid English oak timber which was specifically chosen to tell the story of Holkham’s native timbers. Once constructed, the side table is stained in Minerva Red, a colour created by Mac to match the colours of the fabric walls at Holkham and this is oiled and waxed to create a traditional English polished finish.
