The Smallest detail…

can make the biggest difference… the gap in the top of this coffee table by Pascha Design for example. The simple steel base and locally sourced oak slabs are the perfect play of thick and thin. But , it’s the space between the split top that takes this simplequietmodern statement from beautifully useful to artful.  As we reluctantly start to think about transitioning back indoors come Fall I can’t think of a better place to gather than around this table…in front of the fire, a movie… over coffee or sharing a pizza. OK, pizza it is.





2 steps back…

to get you to where you have already been. As I look at this table I can’t help wondering why I am drawn to it’s simple planked design.  I then realize that I have used this solution before, in the juxtaposition of three raw pine boards fabricated into a tabletop for a classic Corbusier dining table base. The spaces between the boards were as an important a statement as the unfinished quality of the boards themselves. As seen here, they create an illusion of greater length. There is nothing like a great big table surface…to gather with family and friends or sit down alone to pay a few bills. How great would this be here with the C 24’s?
