About

The "Circle of Life" table is unique Post-Modern design by Design Institute America (DIA) designed and produced in the 1980s. Ideal as a dining table, cafe or breakfast table, games table and one of the best center table options available as you can place a floral arrangement on the top platform and utilize the lower tables for other things. Also consider using it in a large walk in closet to place handbags or jewelry displays on top, which also make it great for a boutique fashion store. DIA produced items of the highest quality and had designers work with them such as Milo Baughman. With Post-Modern and Memphis styles coming back into style and taking center stage amongst many of the top interior designers, this is a great piece to get now while the prices are still relatively low. The four glass platforms on the lower 'dining' level are an oval shape which gives more surface area for plates and glassware. The top glass platform is round and while placed at higher, is within arms reach for shared plates. This 'Circle of Life' center table by Design Institute America would work great in a Post-Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. MEASUREMENTS: (Overall) H 36.5" x W 44.5" x D 46.5" Four Oval Table Glass Tops: Height: 29.5" / Width: 24" / Depth: 20" Central Round Glass Platform: Height: 36.5" / Width: 23.5" / Depth: 23.5" CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with light wear. Ready to be used immediately.
