The same tendency for the guéridon side table - furnishing usually used as a base for a lamp of vase - still covered by mahogany featherband, where to the classic taste filled with balance and proportion, decorative items are added, golden details and carved columns to form the three legs. Even in this case, gracefulness and symmetry are “contaminated” by the enormous fluorescent green lacquered wooden crater that takes over the surface of the side table, as if someone bit it. On the stand, there are another two sofa side tables: turned by the rounded lines, these two pieces were drenched with the same fluorescent green paint for one of them and fuchsia for the second. The dense and thick color covers the surface giving it an almost plastic appearance which, dripping towards the floor, shows the marks of the drops and slowly encompasses the structure which still shows the grandiose lines and the solid hardwood of the leg.
