When measuring an equilateral triangle, which way is wide and which way is deep? The width (side) should be the 22", and the depth (altitude) 19".

No little triangle tables included. Were these tables always sold with the smaller tables or were the smaller tables a separate add-on item?

Ginny Kazor bought the table at a yard sale decades ago. Knowing Ginny, she definitely did not pay more than $50!

A hexagonal table and stool/small table set up for auction on December 2, 2018, (see lot 37):

There is also a Usonian square coffee table (see lot 38 )

https://auctions.toomeyco.com/asp/fullC ... o=+++24167

The listing notes the table as:
...probably designed this coffee table for the Usonian House Exhibit: 60 Years of Living Architecture, held from October 9 to November 15, 1953 in New York City on the grounds that would eventually become the Guggenheim Museum.

The use of the word "probably" in the description gives pause...the copper edge appears consistent, but the table has been used at a number of houses and reproductions have been made individually...check for provenance?

Toomey’s is having a sale on May 6 2020 with the less commonly seen Wright cabinet and desk on the block. Prices look reasonable.
