Expertly crafted in painted aluminum, the CG_1 Metal Frame Square Coffee Table features a unique inner leg and foot detail in ¼" solid hardwood or colored solid surface, providing a subtle, stylistic expression in an unexpected place. The leg detail, combined with a walnut or oak ½" thick veneer top, can create a quiet, monochromatic aesthetic or make a bold statement through contrasting materials and colors.
