Minimalista Coffee Table
by Blu Dot
At A Glance:
Minimalist furniture lovers: this is your Citizen Kane, your Grapes of Wrath, your Starry Night, your Walking Through the Woods on a Snowy Evening. The Minimalista is the essence of "table" - no more, no less. This pared down coffee table is offered in walnut, graphite-on-oak, or honed stone with stainless steel gently supporting your choice of top.
What's To Like:
What will you ever do with all that free space? You know, the space created by the Minimalista Coffee Table's tantalizingly thin silhouette and line-drawing base? It's a visual treat, and will allow complete focus to be placed on whatever it is you want to draw attention to in the room or even on this space-breathing coffee table.
What's Not to Like:
We haven't tried it ourselves, but we'd hazard a guess that if your Uncle Joe (you know, the ex-football player) were to lean his bulk on one corner of the table, its frame probably wouldn't like that kind of heavy sideways pressure. Just guessing. The top is plenty sturdy for downward pressure, though, with a central steel support brace underneath.
The Bottom Line:
As minimalist furniture goes, the Minimalista Coffee Table lives up to its name. It's well-made and leaves plenty of room for your life to fill in the blanks around it.
- Overall dimensions: 16" h x 47.5" w x 23.5" d
- Central brace underneath top for stability and strength
- Choose from honed stone or wood veneer over MDF for the top
- Stainless steel base
