The iconic mid-century modern styling of the Paris Coffee Table makes it the perfect centerpiece for any contemporary space. The base is made from two interlocking pieces of European hardwood. The black stain is translucent to allow the beauty of the woodgrain to show through. The hand-applied stain is buffed to allow the wood grain to absorb the clor, while not painting the surface. Five coats of UV light-cured polyurethane are used for a glass-like, highly scratch-resistant finish. This modern class cocktail table is capped by a 1/2" thick triangular clear tempered glass top.
