Jaw Dropping Tables
There are many different types of artists, and they use many different mediums. In fact, I consider myself an artist. My medium just happens to be interiors. The artists below are totally up my alley, since their chosen medium creates beautiful coffee tables.
Christofer Duffy, who creates tables that mimic the depths of the sea in a perfect coffee table, designed this first table. He was quoted saying, “I was looking into sheets of thick glass at my glass manufacturer’s factory, and noticed how he material darkened as they added more layers – the same way the sea does as it deepens and I wanted to use this effect to replicate a real piece of the earth’s sea bed. Like a mythical power had lifted a perfect rectangle straight from the earth’s crust to use as his personal ornament.” The Abyss table is truly a showstopper, and you wouldn’t need too much else in a space with a coffee table like this one.
Greg Glassen also designs tables that look like water is flowing through them. He uses natural raw wood to create these masterpieces, layering perfectly cut glass into the imperfections and gaps between the wood. His process is simple: “It’s important to me that the ‘fingerprints’ of the craftsman are on each piece I make. I try to marry the natural beauty of the wood with the skilled craftsmanship of the maker. When the two come together, a piece can really sing!”
Hilla Shamia creates tables that are a little more rustic in nature than the first two. Combining aluminum and wood logs to create these pieces, she melts the aluminum onto the surface of the sliced logs to create something that is both cold and industrial as well as warm and comforting. The high contrast in the two elements that she combines is quite breathtaking and unexpected, making them even more beautiful.
