The rain could not dampen our excitement on Wednesday as we loaded up this precious cargo and headed to Guelph, our old stomping grounds, to deliver this stunning custom spalted maple and concrete dining table. The table top is made of two, 2" spalted maple slabs with live edge. The markings through the grain are spectacular, and remind us of the intricate details on an old map. It's really amazing how nature can create such beautiful surprises. The dimensions of the table top is 48"w-44"w and 6'6''l. The centre is fitted with a custom-cast beam of concrete, that was polished to reveal the aggregate and then sealed. The concrete adds visual interest to the table top, and functionally can double as a built-in trivet, as hot and cold dishes can be placed directly onto its surface.
The steel legs were designed to accommodate our clients' existing dining chairs, and offers lots of space around and at the end of the table for ample seating. The steel was left raw and sealed to preserve its natural patina and character.
We absolutely loved designing and creating this piece. And we are so happy that it now has a beautiful home to call its own! For more information, or to discuss commissioning your own custom piece, please contact us at email@example.com | 226.208.1428
Ever wondered what the difference is between cement and concrete? Well, maybe not...but here at Studio50, concrete is an everyday thing. It’s not unusual to hear the two terms used interchangeably, but they are definitely two very different things.
