There is no mechanism for the table. That is its permanent location.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Everything about this room reflects the inspiration of Japanese design. The furnishings are simple and sparse. Every item in the room has a purpose. Wood forms the basis of the design. Simple, elegant and totally modern.
A more directly Asian-inspired precedent can be found in this dining table that lifts from the floor. People then sit on the floor and place their legs in the space below the table; sometimes this space is heated to warm the body in colder months.See more of this house

I like much of this. For both practical and aesthetic reasons, I do not hope or want to recreate the table. Still. The wood casings around the room joining doorways and windows and the small band at the ceiling is great. I would love that but I want to the line to happen at about 2 ft from the floor so the line of the window sill carries throughout the living room. I want the 1 1/2 section over the window to actually be under the window. Move the TV stand and shelves to the ceiling and leave the floor clear.

I love minimalism. The idea of a table that raises up, you sit on the ground and dangle your legs in the opening, is amazing. You would have to wipe down the table before using of course.
