The Free Range Coffee Table is among our most ingenious, surprising, and ultimately beautiful coffee tables. Designed like a sculptural work of art, the table combines sturdy walnut legs with a single round slab of marble supported entirely by notches made in the wood. The legs themselves are steadied with a connecting piece underneath the table, but that's it - "free range" indeed. The suspended marble surface of the table is a powerful design statement that can define the room it's placed in (though not overwhelm it).
This is a bold piece from a bold company. Blu Dot has made their reputation producing furniture like this - furniture that maintains the necessary functionality it's intended for, but pushes the boundaries of contemporary style in new and surprising ways. The Free Range Coffee Table is a completely unique work of furniture - it's also indisputably a work of art. The coolness of the marble and the warmth of the walnut legs mix together in welcome contrast, and the suspension of the heavy table is just, well, cool. The table is certainly heavy in a literal sense, but from a design perspective the overall look of the piece is actually surprisingly light on its feet. The legs are slim and elegant, the table itself thin and perfectly rounded.
Free Range is the perfect name for this table. The design has a loose, creatively uninhibited feel that is borne out in the execution, and the finished product would be just as much at home in your den or on permanent display in your favorite art museum or sculpture garden. Just one more boundary-breaking piece of furniture from the visionaries at Blu Dot, brought to you by the furniture lovers at Smart Furniture.
