Occasionally an object designed by Wright seems to be reasonably priced. Anyone out there need this? I would buy it, but there is no space...

Depending upon the standard for this line, this piece might or might not be shown upside down. The unusual curbed top suggests this (to me), initially. The "standard" would be the cant to the edge of the shelves -- not bad as shown, but possible that it's intended the other way ?

The Treadway Toomey page has many interesting treasures shown on the flip book at upper right. Never saw a Noguchi table like the blue one . . . !

You may be correct SDR. It looks like there may be two screw holes visible on the left top edge which would not be left exposed like that.

Thanks, Craig. Yes, it clearly is shown correctly. Interesting to see it used atop a coffee table, as a low room divider. If one purchased three pieces -- coffee table, chest, and hutch, one would have a flexible and versatile set of "building blocks" . . . ?
