Munjoy Coffee Table – Sherwood Hamill’s Design Process + Inspiration

“The Munjoy Coffee Table was named after the hill that we live on. The design was derived from an earlier round coffee table version called the Mod Pod. As the name suggests, the top surface was made up of four separate intersecting pods. The Mod Pod concept was to create a round top that was visually interesting using solid wood. In this case, the grain direction of each pod is rotated ninety degrees radiating from the center while showing the beauty of the end grain around the outer edge. As any furniture maker knows, allowing for the seasonal movement of solid wood in a non-traditional way can be a challenge.”
