Musette Parmentier. Furniture. December 27th , 2017.
In his collection named for the Italian master, Knibb has taken the humble but iconic garments of modern society — jeans and t-shirts — and turned them into a work of art in marble. The designer says that at a distance, the table’s surface appears to be the disturbed surface of water. Indeed, when we first saw the pieces at ICFF, we weren’t sure what they were until we got close enough to see that the marble relief was clothing, including the finest of details: Ribbing, frayed hems, buttons and belt loops. It takes two Italian sculptors about about 700 hours to carve one of these tables. In a media interview, Knibb said that the first carver does a rough cut, and then second refines the piece, adding the details. Not only do the pieces look incredibly life-like, wrinkles and all, but you can see the veins of the marble in these amazing works.
Similarly, the Setis media cabinet is a combination of furniture and sound. It features dual stereo speakers with bluetooth connection and a multi-sync option. The console itself is made of white particleboard and has a glass divider for the lower shelf. In the case of the 360 TV cabinet by Ronda Design, the interesting addition is the stainless steel swivel top which allows it to expand its surface and to maximize its storage and display capabilities. The main unit has a matt lacquered finish and integrates two large drawers. The Factory cabinet is a bit more traditional but can easily be included in the category of modern furniture. It has a low design and features a combination of wood and metal. The frame is wooden and the base is metallic.
This is a very similar project and a great way to give your plain coffee table a rustic look with a weathered gray wooden top. The design and finish go particularly well with the coastal décor but you can basically match this piece with all sorts of interiors. The steps to create something like this are pretty simple. First, get a Lack Ikea coffee table and assemble it. Then get some wood and cut the boards to size. Stain them with your favorite color. Carefully measure the boards and place them on top of the table so they sit evenly. You can leave some gaps between them if you like the look. Then nail down the boards and that’s pretty much it.
Concrete furniture in general is really versatile. A concrete desktop, bench or coffee table can looks beautiful in both modern and traditional settings and this particular table, with its polished look and functional design takes versatility a step further by also featuring casters. The combination of concrete and wood featured by this table is unexpected and really attractive. The coldness of the concrete and the warmth of the wood complement each other in a natural and harmonious way.
