Coffee table by Julien de COVEMAEKER , ditto Juliette BELARTI



What I like

I love above all the work of art side of this coffee table: it has first of all a hand-beaten iron base, unique, that the golden patina makes precious.  In addition, the drawing is very simple but powerful and not at all hail. On the other hand, the tray shimmers, with the use of metal oxides: the preciousness of the rendering is counterbalanced by the abstract side of the concentric patterns: what a precious balance! This table reflects the light in an astonishing way, which sparkles on the golden patina and on the metallic luster of the ceramic.

It’s an artist’s table: what a story that this signature finally attached to Julien de Covemaeker and not to his pseudonym Juliette Belarti: it’s very intriguing… A real investigation has revived this Belgian artist, who had faded behind his pseudonym!


Julien de COVEMAEKER, known as Juliette BELARTI

A rectangular coffee table resting on a beaten iron base with a golden patina with four curved legs ending in streaks, the rectangular ceramic top with metallic luster presents an abstract decoration of gray and white circles on a black background, signed Belarti.

Around 1960.

Mix & Match

This coffee table gives an elegant and artistic touch to any interior. The shimmer of its top and base will be highlighted by the multi-sparkling light of the chandelier imagined by Gaetano Sciolari with  79 drops of Murano glass: of course, the black leather of  the two low armchairs with chrome legs from the same 1960s and 1970s will also be illuminated by the brilliance of this table by Julien de Covemaeker. On our table, we can put a small bronze with golden effects: why not  the Female Nude by Jean-Jacques Hamard, accentuating the precious side of the piece.

But the extremely refined side of our table can play with furniture of the eighteenth or nineteenth century, without any complex: it is a work of art that enhances the beauty of what surrounds it: it is both present and discreet by the rather monochrome aspect of the palette of its tray. Its gilded base allows it to be associated with gilded wood, which is a rather difficult agreement to find.
