Fashion designer Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel originally installed this console side table at Villa La Pausa, and it remained part of the villa's decor through the residency of Wendy and Emery Reves. Tables at La Pausa provided surfaces for the display of the Reves' large collection of porcelain, metalwork, small sculpture, glass, and silver.
