DAVIDSON’s unique Malibu Coffee Table, part of our exciting and innovative West Coast Collection, represents the very best of DAVIDSON craftsmanship. Combining intriguing and original design with a commitment to furniture of the highest quality, we have created a collection that represents a fresh new mood for the company.
The West Coast Collection, a thrilling collaboration with designer Anna Standish, symbolises a new direction for DAVIDSON. Taking design cues from the explosive artistic movement of 1970s America, specifically the West Coast and California, the collection is a celebration of Anna’s love for American Interior Design, brought to life by DAVIDSON’s proven expertise in bespoke furniture making.
Consisting of the Palisades Side Cabinet, the Boulevard Armchair, and, of course, the Malibu Coffee Table, our West Coast Collection represent everything that makes DAVIDSON a unique choice for interior design - giving a nod to significant trends of the past while remaining determinedly future-facing.
Taking as springboard the Swimming Pool series of paintings by iconic artist David Hockney - such as Sunbather and A Bigger Splash - the West Coast Collection conveys the easy-going elegance and fresh-faced glamour of 1970s California.
As such, the Malibu Coffee table is the epitome of sleek design and relaxed luxury. Its clean contours, with radiused corners and wide circular legs, mimic the soft, breezy Californian landscape. The tonal palette echoes the bright sun-drenched colours of the West Coast too. And then there’s the brushed antique brass legs - the perfect finishing touch to a vignette of sultry charm.
The most obvious reference to Hockney’s paintings is in the choice of rippling birdseye maple, tinted in a vibrant shade of turquoise. The overall effect is bold and exotic.
In the way that the swimming pool in Hockney’s paintings became a symbol for the dream-like luxury of LA, in The West Collection, the aqua blues and greens become a symbol for the laid-back elegance and sultry glamour of 1970s California.
