In the same way that wine and cheese form a perfect pairing, this side table accentuates your Living Room Arm Chair with ease and elegance. Inspired from the Tabouret table found in the living room, this low table has enough room for you to place your favorite books, magazines, iPad or Kindle. It sits at the perfect height for you to rest your glass of wine and plate of cheese as you turn each page.
This table differs from the original primarily in the top. Instead of a tabletop of marble surrounded by wood, I made a breadboard end top. This top has all the tradition Greene & Greene details from ebony splines to a beautiful inlay consisting of silver and fruitwoods.
