Pi End Table
by Blu Dot
At A Glance:
Radiating from an open triangular junction in the center of the table, the Pi End Table's solid walnut base encloses three slices of powder-coated steel. It's an appealing combination, with the triangle junction being repeated on the bottom of the base. We're not sure if the name derives from the "slice" appearance of the table surface or the mathematical ratio of circumference to diameter. Either way, it looks cool. Grab a piece of the Pi for yourself (we couldn't resist).
What's To Like:
It's the best of both worlds - a side table that features the look and feel of wood and the impervious nature of steel. The slate-grey top is ready to hold your drinks without worry of moisture staining it. And this round table won't get in your way, either, since it's got no corners to run into.
What's Not to Like:
You'll only be able to dislike the Pi End Table if you're expecting something else. Want an all-wood table? Pi features steel too. Want a square table? Sorry, this isn't it. At least you know what you're dealing with right off the bat with Pi.
The Bottom Line:
A creative fusion of elements, the Pi End Table is sturdy, sized for most living rooms, and looks like a much more expensive side table.
