Description

This coffee table is part of a three-table set and are recommended to be purchased as a tryptic.

Nahj | نهج (Arabic, noun: Method, Approach) is a system of tables that can be adapted based on the user experience, born out of combining two different approaches to design. By combining design principles from the Bauhaus movement with the implementation process of Mother of Pearl inlay, this table arrangement is created to accommodate the activity of tea drinking from start to finish.

This modular system focuses on function as a form of beauty, which allows the inlay to serve less as a decoration element and more as a functional component. The interchangeable system is comprised of three sets of table legs, three tabletops, and a tray, creating an array of possibilities for the user to choose from.

Most of our furniture is made to order. Please get in touch to place your order!

ABOUT THE CRAFT

INLAY

Traditional inlay can be found in the Islamic world as far back as the 9th century. Traditional inlay usually involves materials such as tin thread, shell, and different wood types, most commonly walnut. Historically in Syria, the shell would come from the Euphrates river, but artisans working in inlay today source their shell from further afield.
Many artisans specialize in a single step in the inlay process, meaning that one inlaid piece can involve multiple people. In Jordan, many of those who practice this craft are originally from Damascus. They are very few but are preserving their craft by nurturing a new generation of young apprentices.
