Coffee tables really help to define a space and also add useful extra surfaces in a living room onto which books, vases and drinks can be placed. The Marcel Breuer style Laccio coffee table was conceived as a furniture companion to his renowned Marcel Breuer style Wassily Chair and both share a refined aesthetic and simple clean lines.
The chic Laccio Coffee Table was designed by Marcel Breuer when he was a young Bauhaus student in 1925, and has quickly become a staple of 20th century design. The unique design itself was based off the frame of bicycles as evidenced by the coffee table's tubular shaped legs.

Hungarian designer Marcel Lajos Breuer may be recognised for designing UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris in 1953, but he also left a long-lasting influence on interior design. One of his most important projects was his innovative 1926 steel club armchair. Now renamed the Wassily chair after Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. It was hailed a breakthrough in interior design. After spending time in Europe and London, and then moving to America, Breuer dedicated most of his later career to architectural projects. He was occasionally involved in designing furniture for important cultural buildings such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, but received more recognition as an architect than as an interior designer.
