I designed this coffee table for a friend of mine. She enjoys interior design so I thought I would design something that she could have fun with too. The section in the middle is open to any material the user wants to place there; stone, glass, cork, concrete or even another wood. She chose green onyx 12×12 tiles to match her decor. The aluminum ‘L’ rails do triple duty as support for the onyx tiles, adding a lot of strength to the table and being exposed to drive the overall design. I added aluminum highlights to the drawer sides and splines as a contrast to the rich, deep brown of the Peruvian walnut.
