Whether being used as seat, serving space or footstool, the Summa Tray Table (1993) is solidly constructed and eminently versatile. Made of solid ash wood with a choice of finishes, the Summa's legs have a soft, elegant curve. The tray is removable and can be used separately for serving, while the base becomes a handy footstool. And Summa never gets in the way - the legs fold for easy storage. With a weight capacity of 132 lbs, pull it out whenever an occasional table or extra seating for a petite individual is called for. Designed to coordinate with the Malena Collection, the Summa is a prime example of Stua's clean, simple approach to design. Design Within Reach is proud to be the exclusive retailer of Stua products in the U.S. Made in Spain.
