The Arched Coffee Table was inspired by the flowing lines and elegant curves of the Art Nouveau style of the early 20th century.

Constructed of solid sepele and peruvian walnut, this table features a book matched top created by splitting a solid sepele board and placing the boards next to each other, the result of which is a beautiful eye created by the grain in the center of the table.

The arched leg extensions and color contrast between the sepele and peruvian walnut create an inviting and interesting profile when viewed from any angle. All joints feature splined joinery which locks each joint into place guaranteeing the durability and stability of the piece far into the future.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Too bad you’re in California … I’m certain there’s a big market for this design in St Louis!
