    Customer comments about Noguchi® Table in Walnut by Herman Miller®:

    This piece looks great in my MCM home in SF. The glass brings an element of class; the walnut base gives it an overall warmth. It's a great piece for a mid-century / contemporary look.

    However, the table is especially heavy (thick glass), and because the base is on a pin (holding the pieces together), it requires at least three people to move the table (two to lift the glass, one to move/stabilize the base).

              We use this as a coffee table in our front living room with hardwood floors and leather couches (no rug underneath at the moment). It's beautiful. I've wanted this table for a long time and finally made the purchase when it went on sale near Christmas time. The glass is very thick. I have school aged children and it is not a problem. I wouldn't let them sit or stand on it of course but It's definitely not a fragile piece.

                It's true, once you go Nagouchi -- you don't go back. It's an iconic piece of American furniture design. And I'm thrilled to have it in my home. I purchased the walnut base.

                    I have waited 3 years to buy this and have read the other reviews carefully. I agree with what others have written: This is beautiful art that is also unobtrusive in the room. It works great with a sectional.
                    I have two children so I can attest that the glass is not attached and will tip up if leaned on, which they have not done a second time. (It has one side that is less stable than the others, but the glass is so heavy that it takes a lot of pressure to tip it).

                          Room and Board does not ever have sales on the exclusive pieces in our current collection. However, Herman Miller does have a spring and a fall sale during which time this piece is discounted. We gladly let our customers know when this sales event will occur and adjust our prices to match the Herman Miller sales price.

                        Q:

                        It's such a beautiful design but it seems the solidity of the design is mostly due to the heaviness of the glass top. How much does the top weigh? And how difficult is it to assemble correctly? Would we need to hire muscle? Or would you send a small crane to our condominium?

                          The Noguchi table top is 3/4" plate glass and weighs approximately 180 lbs. With Room & Board in-home delivery, table would be assembled and placed in desired location. If table is moved it would require 2 persons to lift and move top. Assembly consists of 3 parts, a two-piece wood base and the glass top.

                        Can this table be made in a smaller scale. I have a client with a limited space. no larger than 36"

                        Any similar cocktail tables in approx. 36" to 38"

                        Also love the Dunn Table, but also too large.

                          The Naguchi table by Herman Miller follows the original specification by designer Isamu Noguchi from 1948. This is the only size this accent table is available in. Room & Board's Bond, Classic, and Tyne cocktail tables all have a 36" round size option with glass top. A search on Room & Board's website for "36r cocktail table" is another great resource to see a list of results to our cocktail tables that have this size option.
