Shortly after leaving England but before arriving in the US I lived in Japan for a year and had the pleasure of experiencing their unique architecture and way of life. One image that has stayed with me is that of the Torii that lies at the entrance to the Shinto shrines.
My interpretation uses the basic design elements of the torii which are two upright supports and two crossbars on top, the Torii image is visible from both the ends and the sides of the table and the finish would be a deep vermilion lacquer (and darker again on the legs)
I came up with this design before the honeycomb one came to me hence me asking Martin if multiple entries were okay, glad he said yes so I didn’t have to choose :)
Hope you like it :)
