Chinese Limestone DOON Table

About

The powerfully simple forms with smoothed edges and rough sides set off the quiet color and veining of the stone of this doon table. Each elegant and subtle block references the purity of form that underscores Ming design. Full of possibilities for indoor or outdoor use, these tables look strong as a group but work just as well individually.
