Footnotes

  • These pair of consoles are based on a superb 18th century console table from the Michael Taylor residence in San Francisco and sold in the notable auction of his Estate in 1987. In 1970 Taylor bought a home in the San Francisco neighborhood of Sea Cliff. His house was described by Architectural Digest Editor-in-Chief Paige Rense as "Ali Baba's cave of treasures" and Taylor himself referred to it as "my design laboratory....a place where I can study forms and effects and combinations". (P. Rowlands, "Design Classics: Michael Taylor, the California Look Creator in San Francisco", Architectural Digest, September 1996).

    Michael Taylor authorized a copy of that table in limited reproductions. These tables are a pair of those authorized reproductions.
