Things that really work are often really simple. In an effort to design a more versatile cocktail table, Thomas Pheasant further pared an already spare waterfall form-only to add back an unusually thick cast brass frame with an organically textured face and a polished interior. Adapting to its environment, a floating clear glass top picks up the detail of any decorative objects, to include an ottoman, placed under it. Just as the discovered remains of Pompeii brought astounding insights on our distant forefathers, artifacts like this cocktail table promise to reveal us as open, forward thinking, and discerning to some future generation. Depending on the client, Thomas Pheasant can be reluctant to specify a tray and ottoman combination. The stability and surface area of a cocktail table offer meaningful function - in addition to a place to house the Paris Ottoman.
