Noguchi Table

A Perfect Balance

One unique vision: one piece of freeform glass, two perfectly and delicately balanced pieces of wood. Imitated? Yes. Equaled? Never.

Is it art, or is it furniture? It's both. The sleek, aerodynamic lines of the Noguchi table enhance any décor. It's at home everywhere, in interiors from mid-century modern to traditional. Beautiful enough to satisfy your desire for elegance, sturdy enough to hold pizza boxes, DVDs, and the kids' game consoles in the rec room on family night. Noguchi's visionary table has no limits.

  • Delicate, But Durable

    Delicate, But Durable

    The table is just three pieces. A ¾-inch freeform glass top rests on two curved, solid wood legs that interlock to form a self-stabilizing tripod. Although it looks delicate, it is solid, perfectly balanced, durable. It's also a good size: 15 ¾ inches high, 50 inches wide, 36 inches deep.

  • Expanded Color Choices

    Expanded Color Choices

    The solid wood base of the table is available in Noguchi black, walnut, natural cherry, and white ash. The ash base is finished with a process that arrests the wood in its natural, "freshly cut" state. The resulting color is a creamy white that will not turn yellow or golden over time. The table with white ash base is a beautiful complement to the Eames lounge chair and ottoman with white ash veneer and pearl premium leather.

  • His Favorite Furniture Design

    His Favorite Furniture Design

    In a long lifetime of creative work, Isamu Noguchi designed gardens and plazas, fountains and murals, furniture and paper lamps, and stage sets for modern dance pioneer Martha Graham. But he said that of all the furniture designs he created, the table that bears his name represented his only true success.

  • How to Tell if It's the Real Deal

    How to Tell if It's the Real Deal

    To distinguish the real Noguchi table from the cheap knockoffs, we have etched Noguchi's signature on the longest edge of the glass top and on a medallion on the underside of the base.

Answer: 
Yes - attached is a diagram to help demonstrate the recommended glass position with regard to the upper and lower legs for your Noguchi Table. The upper leg should correspond to the side of the glass with Noguchi's signature and should run parallel to the signature. The lower leg should be placed at a 52 degree angle to the top leg as shown in the diagram.

Answer: 
The glass top of the Noguchi Table sits on top of the base, but is not attached. The weight of the glass holds it in place to avoid shifting, and the wood legs interlock to form a tripod for self-stabilizing support. Although the glass is a 3/4 inch thick sturdy plate-glass, the table is not designed for putting your feet up.

My family likes to stack huge books on our Noguchi Table. A single architecture book can weigh about 30 lbs, and we have six on the table now. Since the stacks are concentrated on the center of the table, I'm concerned if this cause any damage to the table. The glass seemed thick and sturdy, but the weight of the glass is also responsible for holding the wooden structure in place, I'd appreciate some technical specs of how much weight the table can hold, to feel assured. Thank you!

Noguchi Table 4.5 5 4 4
Simplicity, elegance, fits with contemporary and mountain home styles The wood base allow this piece to blend with both Eames chairs and with a more traditional leather sofa and chair. The glass top and minimalist base allow the design and color of the rug to show through unimpeded. Couldn't have found a table better suited for the spot. August 9, 2013
I've always wanted this table! I love this table and waited to move into my new home to buy one. It is a beauty! July 5, 2013
First piece of furniture I've said I love you to. I obsessed about this table for months, then I obsessed about it even more while I was waiting for it to be delivered. I was a little worried that it was going to be too big for my small apartment. However, it dominates the room in a good way. This is a gorgeous table. It lost points on comfort because I originally had an ottoman as a coffee table and I'm hesitate to treat it the same way. It would fit great with my next obsession, the HM lounge chair and ottoman. December 18, 2012
Nice but can be unwieldy depending on your space This is a very nice classic design fusing the natural with the modern. It looks great in virtually any environment and I particularly like it in Walnut. However, it's very heavy and cannot be moved by one person, nor easily. If it's in front of a sofa bed for example, it's very difficult to get it moved out of the way to un-fold the bed. Also, if you tend to put your feet up on the table while sitting on your sofa, the glass can slide on the wood legs and end up scratching the bottom of the glass so you have to be vary careful! In the end, I sold this table for something a bit more functional, the Nelson bench by Herman Miller, which is also a timeless classic mid-century modern piece. I like that I can move that out of the way easily any time I want. April 19, 2012
