Where form meets function

The 85th edition of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is ready to deliver a wave of one-of-a-kind items for Holiday 2011. Since their first publication back in 1926, the Neiman Marcus book has worked in conjunction with charities to make the celebrations even more special.

This $45,000 table-tennis table with its black rubber surface by Tom Burr is up there. As he puts it:  “I like the notion of rubber. It has low-key glamour, like that of a sports car’s bumpers and guards. And, quite simply, rubber makes the balls bounce—more bounce for your buck.” $2,500 from each table sold will benefit the Big Brothers, Big Sister charity. Ten units will be produced.
