    Carpets are just hated nowadays, it works as a time capsule and it makes sense to keep a landmark that way.

    606 is to showcase all the products that were designed especially for the hotel, as most of the things have been renovated since.

    Arne Jacobsen designed EVERYTHING right from the knob on the curtains, to cutlery, to the windows.

    Looking for a reasonably priced (< $2K), well made rectangular marble coffee table for a fairly low 88" couch. Any suggestions?

    The PK61 is rather popular hereabouts. New ones are twice your budget, but maybe they can be had used for a reasonable sum?

    I checked some auctions, and this one came in under your budget:

    http://www.lauritz.com/sv/auktion/poul-kjaerholm-1929-1980-pk-61-sofabord-marmor/i2137483/#

    Of course, if you want fossils in your marble, it'll cost 5 times that:

    :)



    Edit: Doh! I just realised you said rectangular, not square. Maybe the PK63 then...

    PK tables are sexpots.

    My favorite coffee table of his is actually the 63 with a soaped marble top.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I had a change of heart over the weekend and think I will go with the Saarinen coffee table in carrara marble. I think adding an ovular shape to the room will be more interesting than another rectangle.

    There's something about the contrast between the voluptuousness of the sofa and the simplicity of the legs that seems off to me.

    I only kinda sorta like the chair from the Nendo/ Peg series. Everything else, I feel is rather unremarkable.
