It is earthy, it is rich and it is spectacular in its rawness. We are talking about the Nairobi Drum Table that is being sold under the brand Kreiss. We are informed that the table carries the trademark “exotic” look of its maker. As a matter of fact, this furniture unit was introduced some 15 years ago. Yes, we are afraid that it was only recently that we spotted this one.
Designed like a very rare Colonial English-style furniture, the Nairobi Drum Table has a very tradition-marries-contemporary feel to it. The shell of the table has been tiled all over with treated coconut shells that were put together by hand to create a mosaic pattern, which truly lends to the table’s unique character.
The table stands on cast bronze animal feet. The surface of the table holds a medallion insert for that antique texture. The dimensions are 38 1/2″ D x 20″ H. The retail price if pretty huge at $4,650.
