Our next living room table piece is literally a piece of art. This coffee table is a replica of Sculptor Isamu Noguchi table. Isamu Noguchi created his distinctive table by joining a curved, wood base with a freeform glass top. This combination of sculptural form and everyday function has made the Noguchi table a timeless classic element in homes and offices since its introduction in 1948.
This perfect Noguchi table replication consists of three basic parts. A beautiful thick glass top and two interlocking wood base pieces in a variety of finishes (Black, Cherry, Dark Walnut, Natural Wood, White). The heavy glass rests on two curved solid wood legs that interlock to form a tripod for self-stabilizing support. This living room table is widely considered to be the perfect combination of sculptural style and practical function. This replica of the Noguchi Style Table will uphold a variety of objects in a professional reception area or in the home. This exceptional reproduction is made from the highest quality materials and workmanship to provide you with countless years of enjoyment.
Only quality materials were used in constructing this timeless coffee table. The top of this coffee table is made of tempered glass 3/4-inch thick with a square honed edge. The glass is very heavy and has a very easy to clean surface. The base on this modern living room table consists of two interlocking solid European hardwood frame pieces. The paint on the European hardwood is hand applied to ensure the best quality. Also the color of the paint is translucent so the grain is able to show through the stain. Also the wood on the base has had 5 coats of Ultra Violet Light cured poly-urethane applied for a glass like finish. This makes the wood highly scratch resistant with a shine that should never need waxing.
Our final take is this is this is a one of a kind coffee table which is a copy of a famous mid century modern classic piece the Noguchi. Many people have admitted it is very hard to distinguish from the “authentic” Noguchi and this piece is the best combination of quality and price. If you are into the modern look then you can’t do much better unless you pay a lot more money.
