Tables at the Lexington
made from reclaimed wood panelling from the 1960's and coated with durable epoxy

Rose. Inspired by the classic tattoo work of Sailor Jerry.

“a rose is a rose is a rose...” is the quote Gertrude Stein is most famous for. It originally appeared in her essay “Sacred Emily” written in 1913.

Nautical Star. This table is inlaid with the pattern of a nautical star. This tattoo was used for lesbians to recognize each other in the 1940’s and 50’s. The strategy was to get the tattoo on your wrist, where your watch would cover it when it needed to be covered.
