Harry Lunstead Acid Etched Copper Top/Walnut Coffee Table Ca.1970. Harry Lunstead was a furniture designer and builder who was active in Seattle through the 1960s-80s. I don't know if he's still alive, but I do know that he produced some awesome furniture in his day, and much of it seems to have remained in the Pacific Northwest. Indeed, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone outside of the Seattle/Portland area who's even heard him. That will probably change before too long, because his designs have the quality of being extremely distinctive and unusual, yet beautifully simple at the same time. Lunstead is probably best known for his use of acid-treated copper in his tables - a treatment that I've never seen anyone else use with the same success. Lunstead also produced a line of bronze tables that had glass tops, as well as case pieces of various descriptions. Although he also produced some office furniture, most of Lunstead's work is interesting and worth looking at. Now is a great time to start collecting Lunstead, if you have an interest, because I believe that interest in his work can only get stronger as time goes on. The etching was done by an artist and each table is different as a piece of art should be. This coffee table is in very good solid condition with a couple of professionally done repairs. There is one spot on the top that has lost its acid etching but would be easy to cover. The dimensions are 63"w x 22"d x 16"h.
