The furious Noguchi sought a short-term furlough, packed up his car, and drove across the country. Once he left the internment camp, he never returned. Instead, he perfected his table design and began producing it for Herman Miller in 1947, getting revenge on Robsjohn-Gibbings, whose own table was made irrelevant by Noguchi’s improved design. Noguchi named the table after himself, lest anyone forget who’d designed it.
This pretty slab table has been in CB2`s playbook for some time now, and with good reason. The silhouette is simple enough that the materials really shine (its iron base is super sturdy!) and at 42" long, it hits that not-too-big not-too-small Goldilocks size that`s just right.
Coffee tables are a living room staple that can effortlessly inject some pretty serious style. Case in point: the marble-topped table. On trend at the moment but undeniably a classic, they will put you firmly "in style" for a long time to come.
