I have long been a fan of reclaimed items being used for furniture and I absolutely LOVE the use of factory carts as coffee tables, they are both, fictional, quirky and interesting, whilst still creating a statement piece in a room, also, every man has a love for steam trains, and the marvelous wheels on these spark the joy of childhood, in me at least.
|This is definitely my favorite of the two, it's simple and understated|
Trunks are anotheralternative to the conventional table, and come in a multitude of shapes sizes and materials, heres a wooden one that i think is pretty average, id much rather have a leather one, thos things are boss!
Case and point...
This sea trunk is pretty damn awesome as well, and would make an epic side table, maybe adorned with some rope, a nautical lamp or some scientific equipment or specimin jar, also it doubles as a storage unit :D
I absolutely love this! it reminds me of a specimen cabinet and it made from one of my favorite materials: leather :D that think will last forever
This last one i like the idea of, but i find the colour a little 'Wishy washy' but the handles are ace, i'd refer it a little darker with brass handles, but hey thats just me... also it reminds me of my old art room, well they are printers drawers after all...
