The table is simply a beautiful object d art that is functional. I put a round glass top on it and it gets loads of compliments. It fits the decor of my sunroom perfectly.
I love these African tables!
The colors are rich (without being too bright), and the artwork is beautiful - it is an accent piece in my dining room.
A Definite Work of Art
Our new sunroom needed a small table beside our couch and the Candid Giraffe was a perfect choice. This table is not only breathtaking but it is obvious the time and love its artisan used in its creation. Needless to say, this work of art has been given many compliments.
