With no stretchers or spandrels, this low table flows like a ribbon, rounding the bend to form waterfall legs that end in scrolled feet. On each of its bench-style legs, an auspicious carved ruyi promises good fortune. Dated to the late 19th century, this table would have been used as a surface for viewing painted scrolls or as a musician's stand on which to play the qin, a traditional Chinese string instrument. Perfect as a coffee table or a wide bench, we love this table for its bold contours, minimalist form, and graphic use of negative space.
