The Tsubo Coffee Table is made from a natural beach stone held in a carved mahogany base. The stone coming through the top gives it the feel of a landscape or Japanese rock garden. The weight of the stone is used to balance the cantilever of the top. This table can be custom made in a variety of sizes and materials.
The name mahogany is commonly applied to many different kinds of tropical hardwood, most of which are reddish-brown in colour and widely employed in furniture-making, boat building and other high specification uses. When quarter-sawn it demonstrates a distinct ribbon pattern.
This is an example of what sets studio furniture apart from commercial furniture. Any number of materials, including a rock you might find near your home, can be incorporated into a piece and serve both a decorative and functional purpose.
