This unique Abstract Expressionism In Furniture™ Exotic Wood Console Table was designed to be functional yet at the same time represent the Abstract Expressionism movement of the 1940's and 1950's. To achieve this, we used the maple veneer as a freshly gessoed canvas and the inlayed wood to be the ''paint'' on that canvas. This console table would look beautiful in any entry way or living space in any home or place of business.
