Coffee Table by Michael Mittelman, Hand Made
Introducing the M.30 Coffee Table, a truly unique and innovative design that celebrates the beauty of ellipses in furniture. This exceptional coffee table is a work of art.man
The tabletop is a masterpiece in itself, consisting of two distinct parts. At the center, you’ll find a meticulously crafted three-layer laminate of maple and mahogany. The real magic lies in the exquisite use of epoxy resin, which fills the intricately carved lines, adding a touch of elegance and highlighting the artistry of the design. Surrounding this central masterpiece, the rim is constructed from a five-layer laminate of maple and mahogany, creating a harmonious and visually striking contrast.
The split legs, crafted from mahogany, inherit the graceful curves of the elliptical top. They elegantly meet with a detail of maple, completing the table’s captivating design. This meticulous attention to detail and the choice of premium materials set the M.30 Coffee Table apart as a statement piece in any living space.
The inspiration for this extraordinary creation came from a deeply personal place. The designer was motivated to craft this coffee table after creating two artist books and realizing he couldn’t have his work sit on someone else’s design. This commitment to artistic expression and unique design shines through in every aspect of the M.30 Coffee Table, making it a perfect choice for those who appreciate both form and function in their furniture.
