Duncan Grant's painted 'Lilypond' table for the Omega workshops Bloomsbury group
The 'Lilypond' table

The 'Lilypond' table was originally produced by the Omega Workshops c.1913, & is one of their most recognised designs. The lilypond design was adapted for several things, including tables and screens. They were originally painted by Duncan Grant, who got the idea from the lilypond in Roger Fry's garden, at Durbins. The abstract and colourful design, on a black ground, really captures the artistic nature of it's subject (goldfish swimming among lilies with a rippled surface).

The table is hand painted, as the original, with a lacquer varnish finish. It would probably make sense to have a glass top on this, for protection. As made to order, it can be made to whatever size you like. Shown above is a smaller breakfast table, while below is shown a longer dining table version.

We can also supply the Lilypond design as a coffee table, as was done originally. We have shown one of these tables on another page in this section. Please enquire further as to what size you require for a quote. This design was also produced as a screen, which we could also produce.
