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, it’s hard not to be astonished by the detail in these tables that Knibb has designed. You feel as if you will reach out and touch well-worn, soft fabric, yet instead your fingers meet with cool, solid marble. It’s as if opposites have morphed together into a single tactile contradiction.

Then stain each piece except for the detailed trim pieces. You may need to sand them first if the wood is treated. Leave them to dry and during this time spray paint the remaining trim pieces white. Only do one coat. Then attach the mirror to the board with wood glue, add the trim pieces and enjoy. A different design can feature a simple frame with straight cuts. You can build it yourself or use one you already have. If you choose the first option, secure the boards together with screws and make some holes for carriage bolts. Then stain the frame and seal it. Allow it to dry. To attach the mirror to the frame, use a picture hanger and basic mirror hooks.

A mirror with a rustic frame can add a warm touch to a bathroom for example. So consider mounting it above the sink. If the bathroom already has an overall rustic décor, the mirror will fit right in. pick a size that matches the space. This one is perfect for the double sink vanity and the dark stain on the frame matches the cabinet. A different design solution is to use two separate mirrors instead of a single large one. This way you make it clear there are two separate zones and it helps if the sinks or washbasins are also placed some space apart from each other.

The Folio media stand designed by Giuseppe Bavuso is a freestanding unit that hides most of its storage at the back while the front features a sleek, curved panel that doubles as a TV stand. Behind it there’s a series of small shelves/ storage compartments for DVDs and other small objects. If you prefer something a bit more low profile, take a look at the NeXo cabinet. It has a simple and sophisticated design and comes with built-in speakers, a detail that increases the unit’s versatility, allowing it to suit living rooms and home theater’s alike.

You don’t have to build the frame from scratch, if the mirror already had one. Just one pallet wood to frame it. Cut four pieces of wood, arrange them and glue them to the existing frame and mirror.. Then use nails to keep them in place. With this method you can also adjust the shape and size of a mirror without havign to cut it. The best way to get a rustic look is by using weathered wood. To build a mirror frame similar to this one, use 4-6 mirror clips and some lumber. Cut the wood pieces and screw them together. Check to see if the mirror fits and then mark where you want to add the clips. Attach the clips and make sure they’re not too tight.

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.

There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.
