50th Birthday Coffee Table

"Lee is an artist, engineer and passionate maker of objects that infuse their surroundings with beauty."

- Rachel Z. | Cambridge, MA

A married couple, when consolidating their furniture when they moved in together, was never happy with any of their existing coffee tables. 10+ years of marriage and two children later, they still had no coffee table. As a 50th birthday present to the husband, LZ Design created this piece for them. It was inspired by their answer to the simple question:
"What do you love about this space in your home?"
 
"We love how the sun casts a shadow of a tree branch outside the window on the floor, right where there should be a coffee table. Inspired by this, the table has inlay marquetry of a tree branch as it transitions through the four seasons.
