The simple beauty of the curved legs in the Alton Coffee Table led me to experiment with a similar but more unique design.
The result is the Mappa Burl Coffee Table. The star feature of this piece is the stunning Mappa Burl that adorns the tabletop. Its random scatter of knots and 3-dimensional grain is hand finished and buffed to display an exceptionally beautiful wood. The edge is American Cherry, in a waterfall grain pattern. A clean line of brushed aluminum inlay rings the boundary of these two woods.
The base consists of a gracefully curved tripod. Each leg is anchored by a series of brushed aluminum rods. The legs meet at the center in a simple but graceful geometric intersection. The simplicity of lines within the complex design allows wood's beauty to be the main feature of this stunning coffee table.
