Function + Form
When looking at your entertaining space, style and functionality is key. For your next wine and cheese night, design your living area around a striking coffee table, such as our Noguchi Coffee Table Replica which is a sculptural tribute to an iconic Noguchi design. With a base of solid American Ash wood, this beautiful piece is topped with a piece of curved freeform glass. For the ultimate dinner party host, invest in a beautiful dining table, such as our Ingrid Extendable Dining Table, which is timeless in design and has a distinct retro feel. Crafted from American White Oak veneer and solid wood, this Scandinavian inspired piece seats up to six adults and eight when extended.
