The gently undulating pages of an old manuscript inspired the top of this dining room table, which was created by Kenneth Cobonpue, a Filipino designer known for his use of natural fibers and materials. Fine layers of walnut are naturally warped and then stacked to create the surface; rather than being compressed, the layers are allowed to breathe, which creates an airy, sculptural profile from the sides. Brushed stainless-steel u-shaped legs complete the look. Yet despite its durability—and the thought that, What’s the worse that could happen if we put it outside? The wood warps some more?—the Parchment table is strictly meant for indoor use.
