Could this be the perfect coffee table?

With a sleek, moon-like marble top balancing on brushed brass stilts, it would be a shame to mess up Porada’s Joint coffee table with magazines, wineglasses or the snacks tray.

It's certainly tempting to just sweep it free from clutter and admire it as a work of art. Shouldn’t be hard considering its perfect proportions and smooth Canaletta walnut joints.

Designed byItalian interior design duoMarconato & Zappa, the Joint110M coffee tablefeatures asolid Canaletta walnut frame that wraps around agorgeous brushed brass base. It's the clean, uninterrupted lines of the stilt-like brass legs together with the curved, seamless dark wood structure – and simple, smooth marble slab top – that make it look so modern, elegant and refined.

No joins, no hinges, no corners. Just smooth curves and seamless coming together of materials.

For those that prefer a darker, edgier look, the marble top also comes inblack Marquinia marble and brown Emperador Dark marble – or you can switch the marble for a 12mm tempered glass table top – and the walnut frame can bestained in moka or wenge for a darker, sultrier look.

Prices start from£1,730 for the small table, or £2,922 for the full sized coffee table – both available from GoModern.
