A table top with the look of velvet?

Simplicity, refinement and timeless style define the Howard table, designed by Jean-Marie Massaud for Poliform.


A self standing structure in wood and steel with a smoked velvet-like grey plate top, the table will bring a sense of warmth to any interior setting.




The structure is solid wood, spessart oak, with a laser-cut and folded metal frame and the finishing in painted bronze. The squared version has a top in tempered glass, with a thickness of 12mm in the finishing – etched and fume with wooden frame, transparent bevelled without frame. In the rectangular version the top is available also in wood in the finishing spessart oak and in marble, 3 mat and 4 glossy finishings.
