I think I'm turning Japanese

We just got two tables from the local San Francisco vendor Table Asia (click for the website!) and I'm a bit obsessed. The craftsmanship that is put into each piece is astounding; it's quite apparent even looking at them how much time and detail was put forth. Their store offers a multitude of pieces, such as conference tables, side tables, sculptures, art (in the form of stencils called 'Katagami', I'll take two please), and so much more. I'll let Table Asia do the rest of the talking, but needless to say I'm impressed.

"The intrinsic beauty of these unique Japanese wood creations is the inspiration for Table Asia Gallery and our Japanese furniture. Each of these authentic antique or vintage panels was constructed without the use of glue or nails. We never deal in reproductions." -Table Asia

"The workmanship found in these rare and unique panels is a reflection of the thoughts and passions of Japanese culture that stirred the spirit of artisans." -TA

The Transom Panels in the Kyoto Conference Table (above) were used above doorways in all traditional Japanese architecture.  

These tables are a delicious addition to any home; come by the store to check out our tables in the flesh.
