Hugh has created a side table that has been stripped to only its essential parts. The top is a custom veneered disk with solid wood legs that penetrate its surface and interlock with the top. The piercing of the legs creates a simple pattern or rhythm around the circular table edge, while at the same time provides the connection needed to support the top without using a stretcher. Crisp, clean lines keep the design contemporary and the woods contrasting yet complimentary nature adds a modern flare.
