The brief: 
An elegant coffee table on Saturday night.
Also, must be a cozy space to put ones feet up on Tuesday.
So, we took some inspiration from a few of the great coffee tables, and designed our own. 
A great base with shelf for a stack of cocktail table books below, and softly flaired leg and top edge to keep the custom fit, but removable, upholstered top in place.

Throw in a beautiful finish and an amazing mohair velvet in charcoal blue/grey, and we are there.
I could use one of these, could you?
