Designed to rest just over the arm of your sofa, this convenient auxiliary table from Guatemala is designed by Victor Hugo Lopez. He handcrafts the table from pinewood, featuring a foot that rests just under the sofa.
Victor Hugo Lopez has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $100 and the most recent for $600. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of cedar and cypress woods for production.
Woodworking had been an important aspect of Victor's community for many generations. Victor continues to teach his son and grandson his techniques so they can continue to preserve the craft for generations.
Victor feels blessed to be able to reach so many people without having to leave his country. Most of his income is through NOVICA and he relies on it to provide for his family.
With the help and support of his family, Victor has been able to grow his business and provide a better life for himself and his family.
Victor was recognized for his work and received a scholarship to study microenterprise management in Oregon.
This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
Victor's work was featured in a catalogue of Guatemalan handicrafts.
"What a beautiful piece of furniture"
I won this beautiful table for our 39th anniversary. It just arrived today and it?s gorgeous. Very easy to put together, long screws to stabilize the table. The wood is thick and the stain gives it such a rich look. I love how the middle of the legs are carved, honestly, that?s what hooked me on this piece when I choose it. Thank you Novica and Mr. Lopez, I know this will be treasured by our family for many generations.
- Great for food or drink or to put a laptop on it
- I?ll be having surgery on my knees so this will be perfect while I rest
