i love this table. i think it would make a great table in between two linen club chairs or as a side table by a velvet sofa. its just different from your regular, indonesian dark-wooden side table found in a lot of your local shops. it has a cool vibe to it. i love the idea of mixing it with different elements...placing a funky, glass lamp on it or using dark fabrics for your upholstery would look amazing next to this light wood.
