With the César, Jacques Garcia takes the movement toward Industrial Chic, so popular in Europe, to the couture level. The base is a classical “x” in stylized bamboo, hand forged with startling authenticity. The César was designed for full size and larger sofas. The shape would also be appropriate for some sectionals. The glass top is large, with a prominent overhang, and an obvious choice for a statement rug. It works easily in both traditional and modern schemes.
The torch is a Roman motif, and a simple finial emerges from the cup to meet the glass. The detail of the base warrants clear glass visually sharpening every detail. The top itself almost disappears.
