The idea for this design has been kicking around for a little while. It started with a conversation with some friends and then on to some sketches. The idea is for one straight leg and one curved leg (or, I guess, two of each really). The pieces sketched include a partner’s desk and a storage unit. I obviously parsed through a couple of ideas.
I then moved to Google Sketchup and flushed out a coffee table based on the same idea. I went with a glass top so that you can see down into the structure.
I’d build the apron and legs using bent laminations from a single board so that the curved leg looks like it’s just splitting off from the apron as it curves down to the floor.
