Ikea Lack coffee tables are extremely versatile and they can even change function if you desire such a project. For example, you can turn such a table into a comfortable tufted ottoman. You might have to cut the legs a bit to make them shorter. Then use foam and fabric to make the cozy seat cushion and attach it to the table. There’s more than one way to give this coffee table a new look. So how about adding some mid-century charm to the mix? For this project you only need to use the top of the Lack table. You also need to find some tapered legs to use with it. So basically install the legs and make sure they’re symmetrical and stable.
Visually enthralling? Most definitely. Practical? Perhaps…perhaps not. To call Knibb’s pieces mere tables would be silly. They are the textbook definition of art: Something that is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
Sometimes found in bedrooms, other times in bathrooms, vanity tables are often perceived as chic accessories. Their designs adapt to a variety of styles but, regardless of that, they always a certain bohemian flair about them. Vanity tables are always accompanied by a chair or a stool and a small makeup vanity can also include other accessories such as mirrors or extra storage. The vanity stool is just as important as the table or cabinet itself.
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.
