Inspired by the form of an arrow, the coffee table is modern piece of furniture, but it could also find a place among more traditional settings. If the connection with the modern style of furniture comes from the fairly simple form of the table, the materials and finish I have used are a reference to a more traditional style. The table is veneered (highly figured gaboon with a naturally dark brown color). For the inside of the circle, I bleached the gaboon veneer and dyed it golden/yellow to create contrast. The finish is water based lacquer, brushed and polished to high gloss.
