Purity of design and functionality are in the design DNA of this family of dining and accent tables.
Sophisticated details, like the leg that inserts into the table top, conceal the complexities of construction under the guise of simplicity. Exquisite combinations of materials are possible between the structure in solid Canaletto walnut and ash and the flush-set top in several kinds of marble: White Carrara, Black Marquina, Calacatta Gold and Emperador. Designed as the perfect complements to the seating options in the collection, the Gustav side tables have bold personality and a flair for standing alone or in groups, where the interplay of overlapping planes is even more evident.
