More Frankl Art Deco furniture

While doing some research for a commission, I came across a goldmine of images of Art Deco period furniture by the American Designer Paul Frankl at an old auction listing

I am in the process of "miniaturizing" a number of the pieces: here, for example, is a progress shot of my take on an oriental coffee table. Among the changes - different colours, discarded the black glass top as superfluous in this colour scheme, and removed the metal rod supports as well.
I couldn't resist the raspberry from my garden as an indication of scale. The table is 14.5 scale inches tall and 28 inches long. I'm probably going to do the occasional table as one of my next projects.
