The downside to the Morrison table is that the diagonal seam between leg and table is easily visible from the sides--whereas, you point out, the seams are visible from the top on the Mainzer.If we were to do a solid lacquer color (say, white), the Morrison table is clear win. However, if we want wood, Mainzer's table wins hands down, as it is as thin, but made...

In process. Still need to get through contract signing and co-op approval.
Everything I like is awesome, so I don't understand the surprise . . .Sadly. They won't work in our new apartment. Neither will our round Saarinen, for that matter.
