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.
A concrete coffee table, even though it can be very versatile, tends to blend in better with certain styles. For example, this one has a compact and robust look and it integrates really well in the industrial loft interior. Concrete coffee tables come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and designs and that’s due to the malleability of the material. This particular table, for example, uses an asymmetrical design to stand out and, at the same time, to be as functional as possible. Jeremy Kaplan Design takes the whole concept to a whole new level, offering a series of cast concrete tables for both indoor and outdoor use that feature wood inserts, storage at the top and bottom and interesting geometric shapes.
A vanity table or cabinet represent accessory furniture. It each has its functionality but it’s not a main piece. And while this detail could mean that it’s a perfect opportunity for this piece to blend in and to stay neutral, another option is for the vanity and its complementary stool to stand out and to serve as accent details. The stool itself becomes an accessory able to impact the room’s décor and style. The accessories which can be added to the duo are numerous, a mirror with lights being just one of them.
