At A Glance: Gus brings together contemporary and traditional materials in the blatantly faux Root Table. The white lacquered top has a wood pattern etched into its surface, and with the addition of the tapered ash legs, the table makes a weightless, airy impression.
What's To Like:
The Root End Table gives new meaning to the term "wood grain" - its etched tabletop is a delightful parody of the pattern of a fresh-cut wood plank.
We love the contrast between the tabletop's material and color and the solid tapered Ash legs.
What's Not to Like: If you want a wood-look side table, the Root End Table won't be your cup of tea.
The Bottom Line: The Root End Table by Gus Modern is a whimsical, light, modern re-interpretation of a natural wood side table. Also see the Root Coffee Table.
