MONARCH COFFEE TABLE
As stated by Leonardo da Vinci, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". Presenting
the Monarch coffee table. The beauty of this piece is in its simplicity of design and ease
of assembly. With no fasteners or gluing required, it locks together in Chinese puzzle
fashion providing a solid, radially symmetrical base for its glass top. However for its
simplicity of form it does have a level of detail not entirely obvious from a distance. The
edges of each piece are subtly tapered offering an additional touch of elegance. This
attribute may best be recognized in the third thumbnail view below.
We designed this piece in response to the online furniture buying experience, which
most always requires the item to be packaged and shipped. Associated expenses
commonly increase the overall purchase price significantly if not making it cost
prohibitive. When disassembled the leg elements stack compactly in a space of
5"x5"x33" which not only reduces shipping costs but becomes a more durable item for
shipping. The glass top can also be shipped but a better option is to have us order it
directly from your local glass shop. Why pay for extra packing and insurance of glass
when it can be sourced locally.
Shown here in walnut (top row of thumbnail images) as well as poplar, ash and ash
dyed yellow (bottom row of thumbnail images) the Monarch coffee table can be custom
ordered in whatever wood species you prefer. The glass top shown here is tempered
3/8" thick but 1/2" non tempered works well also.
