As we all know, there are wide-ranging options when it comes to choosing living room table to use in the room. One of the most popular choices is Noguchi table, which is a piece of modernist furniture introduced by Herman Miller back in 1947. The name of this table design style refers to its designer, Isamu Noguchi. In overall, this stylish modern table blends a wooden base that is composed of two similar curved wood pieces along with a heavy plate glass table top choice.
Originally, Noguchi table was produced in cheery, walnut, and birch for the table base material. The Noguchi table original in general still exploits the same wood variety, as well as ebonized walnut. Cherry table bases were created only during the first year this table was released on the market, thus making them highly sought ever since. As for birch table bases, they were manufactured between 1947 and 1954. You can use this as a hint to recognize Noguchi table knock off.
As for the glass table top surface for Noguchi table, it was originally issued with 7/8 inches plate glass. But in 1965, the thickness of the glass top was reduced to 3/4 inches. Change was also made for the height of its base. The table base was raised, thus increasing the total height of this stylish table from 15 inches to 15 3/4 inches.
Thus far, the Noguchi table has become one of the most successful and iconic designs released by Herman Miller. In 1973, the production was ceased, thus making this furniture piece turning into an instant collectible. In 1980, Herman Miller reissued this table in a limited edition, releasing only about 480 tables to the markets. In 1984, this table was reintroduced by Herman Miller once again for the “Herman Miller Classics” line. Ever since, this table has been in production up until now.
Surprisingly, the price of Noguchi table is relatively affordable, considering its status as modern classics. It is also widely available. It is most likely due to the fact that this table were in constant production, starting from 1947 until 1973, and reproduced once again in 1984, and produced ever since. The table is designed to be not only stylish, but also highly durable. Even though the table base indeed can be scratched and dinged, nearly no breaks or cracks may occur. The glass top is susceptible to scratching on its upper surface and chipping along the edges, but it is generally so heavy and large, making it rarely break.
