I need to get a copy of a two-page spread that appeared in

Customer Question

I need to get a copy of a two-page spread that appeared in Architectural Digest sometime after 1985, the year I bought a table featured in the two-page spread. I bought the table from Roche-Bobois in Boston. The salesperson was Gina Freeman who is no longer with Roche-Bobois. I don't know how to find her and may not need to. I have the original sales slip. I paid about $3300 for the table then; new today it would cost far more. The tabletop is an 8.5' red granite slab; at one end, it is deliberately slashed at an angle. The table originally rotated on its base, but I no longer have the hardware to enable that and wonder if I can buy the hardware somewhere. The granite slab has two supports, both placed in the middle of the table next to one another. One is a cylinder of Carrera marble. The other is close to the shape of a parallelogram and is made of slate. Slate was a poor choice because it chips easily, even with ordinary use. I am now having to replace the slate with something stronger, perhaps granite or an interior with a granite cover, but still black and in the same shape as the original. I am open to suggestions about what to use to replace the slate, which broke badly enough to require replacement. In addition to the photo in Architectural Digest, I have one advertising piece (perhaps from Roche-Bobois, but still better photos of my own. In Architectural Digest, the table was shown with the same chairs I selected, but bought independently; it was interesting to see that designers had come up with the same look I had. I would like to be able to send you photos and would appreciate instructions on how to do so. I would appreciate knowing the value of the table today, both with and without the rotating mechanism.

I have more photos if you need them. EBSCO seems to have Architectural Digest's archives covering the likely photo. I couldn't get through to Arch. Digest by phone.

Hello, I received your images, though I have not found a match to the article in Archtectural Digest that you seek. I have not found a match to this for you. I will opt-out and open your question again to all the experts at no additional charge. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra. There is not a guarantee that you will receive a response. I will not be able to respond back after opting-out I do hope you find the information. ~Nora
