Good Questions: What's the Best Noguchi Table Color?

Hello AT,

I've always dreamt of having the Noguchi Table in my home and now I'm finally ready to take the plunge.

The problem is, I can't decide on which finish to get for the base.

The choices are black, walnut or natural cherry and I love them all! What would you do?

My living-room is a work in progress, but here is a "before" photo. As you can see, my couch is chocolate brown and the floors and window blinds are cherry.

Not shown is a low media cabinet (see Avion BDI photo attached), which is also cherry with smoked glass fronts. My accent color might be aqua like the pillow, or off white like the Frenchie, but I'm still deciding on that (either way, the Frenchie stays).

This is a major purchase for me and I'm nervous, so any guidance you can offer would certainly be appreciated and would set my mind at ease (perhaps even help me unclench the credit card at the register!).

Thank you! Lourdes

Dear Lourdes,

You can't really go very wrong here - it's a great table - but we'd say that your room has some dark tones and some light tones and you could use a medium tone, so go with the natural cherry.

In addition, we feel that too many different kinds of wood - unless it's intended - create some loss of focus. So, stick with cherry.

Anyone else??
