Review #210

"I don't know what can possibly be said about these fine pieces of art that hasn't already been said about penicillin, sliced bread or the wheel. After years of resting drinks on the arm of our couch, I decided to take the plunge and order a Beginnings48 table. Gone are the days of 'Where the hell is my coffee?', 'Oh crap! My wine!' and 'Oh crap! My coffee!', I no longer have to ask my husband to clean up after me. This purchase was life changing - not only do I yell at the kids less but I'm even calling my husband by his given name, and my neighbor Brittney's jealousy was just a bonus. I can't say enough about the therapeutic effects owning this magnificent coffee table has had on our whole family. All that and we're even 10% richer!" - Tiffany K.

Our conceptual designs...

Sketch: A DNA sculpture

What started originally as a DNA based design for a wine rack now has come full circle. The idea for this is the broken strand - this one would make an impressive wall sculpture at 6 ft high.

Sketch: The latest U-shaped coffee table design

The thought behind this is to develop a design that hangs onto the glass only at the very edges -  the overlapping wood clearly defines the shape. (2'x4')

Top view

Storage is always the issue (and usually gets in the way of design) but I think this one handles the task perfectly.

The Jimmy V Table... our latest design

This is the "Jimmy V" hall table built specifically for the V Foundation Benefit for Cancer - a yearly event held in Napa Valley that raised over $18m in 3 days. Awesome.

"Slope" - a recent design that came to life

This one has the emphasis on a simple, gentle curve with a cantilevered glass top.

"Slope" prototype

Shown with a 30" top in Leopardwood and really looks gorgeous.
