My need here is for a table that has a foursquare look but I am thinking about floating the top up a little—maybe 7/8”.
There are three identical tables 27” high and 15” wide and probably 80” long. They will be along a wall in an office to hold plants and other decor.
As I started to imagine that, I began to think that floating tops are usually, and maybe always, larger than the substructure. I Googled the obvious three words and yes, most are larger, but some aren’t. The latter don’t look quite as good to me. Do you think the idea is worth pursuing, or will it look “not quite, but almost.”
In the research, I stumbled upon what looks to me like the first truly floating top. What a concept and execution!
