|TV Tray in Use|
|Waiting to be Used|
The design I was after was to have the three of them make a statement when they're together. They can be arranged as shown, with the widest end out, or reversed with the shorter end out. This would depend on where you keep them. In this case they are tucked into a curved wall in our house.
One design element that needed to be addressed is that when they are not in use, I didn't want a "sea of legs" as Diane put it. That's the reason for going with only three legs per table. The prototypes seemed to work and now that we've used them they are very stable. When you look at them straight on you're not overwhelmed by that sea of legs!
To me, the tables have a sense of movement. Angling the legs out not only added stability but also some life. The legs taper towards the bottom and their face is beveled as well. Small, subtle features like this is what gives them life and movement.
