Compass Coffee Table

Showcasing an attractive interplay of curves, pattern and reflection, the Compass Coffee Table draws your eye from all angles. The organic arcs of the champagne gold base resemble the points of a compass, extending to the smooth edge of the transparent glass top. The aesthetic hints at 1970s Modernism, with a look that’s been updated for contemporary styling.
