Why You'll Love This Side Table
Designed by Neri & Hu for Poltrona Frau, the Ren Side Table is part of a furniture accessory collection designed to complete the look of the living space with a discrete and comfortable approach.
This piece features a tray shaped table top with an overarching support frame in walnut with a Canaletto veneer. The upper crosspiece of the frame acts as a carrying handle, making it easy to move from room to room.
The shape of the frame of this table is inspired by the Chinese ideogram 'Ren', which can be seen in the elegant cross structure of the frame's side profile. Ren means 'person, human being', and like all the pieces in the Ren Collection, the Ren Side Table provides a personal and private feel thanks to its versatile uses and minimalist design.
Ren is made using a mix of high quality materials, combining wood, brass and leather to achieve its practical and aesthetic design goals. Here, the table is made from birch plywood, with saddle leather covering its outside edge and inside surface, and a brass finish covering its inside edge. For the leather cover of the table top there is an option of four different colours to choose from.
