Wright Inspired Coffee Table

This table owes its' beginnings to the  designs of Frank Lloyd Wright. The simple rectilinear shape creates  the foundation for the  horizontal and vertical  planes that Wright  used  as the focal point of his designs.  This  interpretation of Wright's design ethic does take  some liberties with the original concept of simple materials and minimal ornamentation.  With its' figured bubinga and curly cherry base and top and ebony trim, this piece is probably a little more colorful than something that Mr. Wright would have done.
Today's materials and construction techniques have also allowed this table to, in some ways, be superior to furniture constructed in Wright's period.  The top is made of 1/8" thick cherry veneers laminated to a substrate of MDF,  which gives the the solidity and durability of solid wood, but without most of the problems associated with seasonal wood movement.  The base is finished with several coats of hand rubbed oil and the top  has four coats of Nitrocellulose lacquer for beauty and durability.

This table is available in other wood combinations upon request.
