Nunnerley describes the sleek 1960s Maison Jansen table from Paris as “the perfect table”.
Seen here in front of Kenneth Noland’s Diamond, it can expand or contract to seat 10 or two. The piece is on casters, so she can move it anywhere in the room and set up chairs around it — that’s why there’s no rug.
“It’s like Versaille,” she says. “There are no formal dining rooms there either. They simply moved the table to wherever they wanted to eat, whether that was in front of the window or in a grand room.”
