De Nisco Fat Lava Tiled Coffee Table Chrome 1970s Large Brutalist Funky MCM

De Nisco Fat Lava Tiled Coffee Table Chrome 1970s Large Brutalist Funky MCM

A gorgeous, rare and super-colourful coffee table that's a work of art! One of two of these very rare beauties we're lucky enough to have in stock, this outstanding table was made by DeNisco, most likely in the early 1970s. An exceptional and very striking Mid Century chrome and Fat Lava tiled coffee table in really lovely condition, this is bursting with colour and was expertly made. Vintage tiled coffee tables don't come much better than this; its spectacular hues and superb Fat Lava and chrome textures will add a wonderfully vibrant Mid Century presence and high-end vintage class to any interior.


Beautifully sized to make an impact, this is a statement coffee table par excellence. It features a show-stopping top of thick 'Fat Lava' ceramic tiles in a sunburst pattern of dazzlingly red, orange, yellow and black, with the wonderfully deep and rich texture that gives Fat Lava its name. The top, itself a stunning work of art, is set-off beautifully against the shiny sleek chrome base with its robust almost-Brutalist right angles, overlapping layers and striking sleigh legs, with the original black plastic feet present and covered with furniture pads for ease when moving.


Overall this is an outstanding and truly impressive rare piece bursting with brilliant colour, texture and quality throughout - and is definitely one of our favourite ever ever EVER coffee tables!


This table can be distinguished from the other we have in stock by its darker border and together they make a breathtaking pair of colourful, richly textured, sleek, textured, Brutalist beauties.



The original DeNisco signature can no longer be seen on this table; as was the case with Fat Lava coffee table, most of signatures were lost during the firing process but nonetheless it's a truly remarkable piece by De Nisco.



This is in very good condition. Structurally sound, this was wonderfully constructed and built to last. The thick tiles are in excellent condition with no signs of chips or cracks and the chrome has some signs of wear, as you'd expect after 50 years of use, but which isn't overly noticeable,  including light scratching and some pitting and discolouration to the sleigh legs. Overall it's in great shape and should be just as gorgeous, desirable and even more rare in another half century if well looked after - please see the photos.



Height - 41cm, Width - 121.5cm, Depth - 51.5cm, Estimated Weight - 20-30kg. This is a large and very heavy piece that will require two people to carry.
