The Eubea dining table has been designed in the 1990s by Scolari. Made of ‘red’ birch wood the model is very rare to find. Eubea had a line of tables, also with glass table top but the beautiful sculptured underframe carried on legs are the same in each design. Very beautiful and detailed table but also very firm and comfortable.
