Description: This table has become known as the "Northern Lights Table", because the grain patterns in the Purpleheart closely resemble the eerie light shows of the Aurora Borealis.  As you move from side the side looking at the top, the grain reflects the light and shimmers in shades of purple. The grain in the Tiger Maple has similar vibrations and reflections, and the two woods harmonize perfectly together.  The curvaceous top, drawer fronts, and mirrors create a truly unique style which brings together  the classic Queen Anne legs in a mix of  eclectic styling.  The drawer boxes are made in Aromatic Red Cedar.  The stool matches the table design. Hidden hinges on the side mirrors are incorporated to enhance the design functionality.  There is a flip down hidden compartment under the bench.
