This long and sleek boat shaped vintage walnut Mid Century Modern conference or dining table by Jens Risom has been completely stripped, sanded and refinished with Danish oil to perfection.
After Danish oil, we applied a coat of Rubio Monocoat for great durability. The only disadvantage of it is the price: 1.3 l costs $230.95. Please find info here:
Exceptional quality and rare in Canada, it offers a large surface of fabulous walnut for dining or business. Wherever it lands, it anchors the room with effortless sophistication.
Dimensions: 96” x 42”/36" x H 30.25”

The first true Knoll designer, Jens Risom joined the young Hans Knoll Furniture Company in the early 1940s as the sole designer of interiors and furniture. Born in Denmark to the well-known architect Sven Risom, Jens worked in Stockholm for one year before graduating from the prestigious Kundstandvaerkerskolen in Copenhagen.
Risom left Denmark for the United States in 1938 and, for two years, served as Director of Interior Design at the studio of Dan Cooper, Inc. in New York before starting a freelance career specializing in furniture and textiles. It was during this time that he met Hans Knoll. The pair collaborated on an exhibition for the New York World’s Fair. Knoll asked Risom, who had been searching for a promoter and manufacturer, to help him design interiors for clients around New York.
