Item of the day: John Houshmand Coffee Table

There are times when you see an item and it quite wonderfully brings together two very different dynamics.  Traditionally, coffee tables were made of wood and people did not much question whether this was the optimum material for such a piece of furniture.  Moving on in history, we started to see far more glass coffee tables which ranged from super-sleek to appallingly naff, but I believe this item takes the best of both worlds:

The imperfection of the wood mixed with the seamless nature of the glass is very eye-catching and something that I could very much imagine in a lobby (although it would also make significant waves in a large enough living room!)
