Occasional tables, also known as coffee tables, are part of the ‘living’ category and are furnishing complements that can be positioned wherever aesthetic and practical functions are required. Indispensible in a traditional sitting room or a modern, open space living room (for socializing, working and studying) these tables have the form and decorative characteristics of a true interior design protagonist. The collection of living tables by Zanotta includes occasional tables that can be collocated in the middle of a conversation area or between sofas and armchairs, with one or more surfaces also available in different and very refined materials: from Cristalplant outdoor® for Loto and Ninfea (Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, 2009), to natural oak and Canaletto walnut for Oliver (Emaf Progetti, 2009), or pure plate glass for Ambo (Enzo Mari, 1987) and Sanzeno (Emaf Progetti 1986-95). Destined to convivial use for entertaining guests, and as a place for keeping books, magazines, remote controls, tablets and other objects used in times of relaxation, Zanotta’s living tables are available in various rectangular or curved shapes. Some have structurally important bases such as Butterfly (Alexander Taylor, 2006) and Arabesco (in homage to Carlo Mollino, from a design from 1949). The latest arrival to the company’s vast catalogue is Spillino (Damian Williamson 2012), in aluminum alloy with a plate glass or white Carrara marble top.
