Reclaimed Walnut Table Grows Plants

January 21, 2011 by

Here’s when the thing that falls between the cracks is a good thing. As part of her application to grad school in architecture, Brooklyn designer, Emily Wettstein, dreamed up these gorgeous tables then crafted them from reclaimed walnut and steel.

The wonderful surprise: the removable planter in the center of the 24″ x 60″ table.

She’s filled this one with wheat grass, but it’s up to you to fill with whatever plants you like. Just make sure you keep ‘em watered.

    Congrats on the mobile phone app news feed! How cool is that?
    Also, love, love, LOVE the table! I want one! Great to be able to doe seasonal plantings. It would be fun to use the trough as a giant cut flower vase too for those who are in a hurry to get fresh plants in there before the dinner guests come. (Or perhaps they have a spare “trough” already growing new plants in the greenhouse?). It would be fun to fill with gold fish too …..

    First – This deserved to be in that mobile app! Good job!

    This table looks awesome. I think I could make something similar. I believe I could even do it with a hydroponics system. Could this potentially be a new trend? Plant growing furniture?
