Taarof Table is a modular cocktail table created by New York-based designer Kouros Maghsoudi, available at Love House. As part of the Mehmooni Collection, the table gathers inspiration from ‘Taarof’ or ‘Tarof,’ which is a Persian word referring to an Iranian form of civility or art of etiquette that emphasizes both deference and social rank. The collection as a whole references its namesake, which translates to ‘gathering’ or ‘party’ in Farsi. The table further cultivates this spirit by providing leg inserts that can be used as an ice bucket, ash tray, or fruit bowl. Taarof Table is constructed of FSC-certified furniture plywood and MDF, and zero-VOC furniture lacquer, and produced in New York City.
