This elegant coffee table came from an Italian villa decorated with numerous designer pieces from the 1960s and 1970s. Many pieces by Tobia Scarpa and Fontana Arte especially. The table was designed by Marc Berthier for Magis, Italy in 1990. It features a book matched cherry veneer top and polished cast aluminum legs. The table has a tiny veneer chip in the top as shown but overall the condition is very good.
