This ornate, wooden coffee table may be traditional in it’s structural design, but its bright, yellow paint and highly-patterned top are far more modern. The pattern shows flecks of bright red, orange and white. They are repeating, but it is unclear what they are. If I told you it was a tesselated photo of soggy food remains in the kitchen sink, you may be surprised. An unusual choice for a table-top perhaps, but a striking piece of furniture that makes a statement all of it’s own.

A bright yellow coffee table made of decoratively turned wood, is topped with a patterned panel under glass.
