Table Those Plant Containers

February 18, 2010 by

This beautifully crafted mahogany and maple table by California designer Greg Zulkie has three stainless steel pots for holding anything from plants to pens. Viewed from the top, one can see how the mahogany “stitches” the maple surfaces together.

Over time, as the mahogany ages, the color of the wood darkens and richens. A tropical wood, mahogany is stable and its high resin content allows it to resist warping and dimensional change preventing shifting in the table surface better than many other woods.

Anyone interested in manufacturing the table? Zulkie is very interested in getting it produced.

    You could put an edible salad garden in the middle. At your meal…you could literally pick your salad you will eat for dinner at dinner.

    Why not choose woods, if you must use wood, that is not nearing endangered species status as mahogany is? A little awareness goes a long way and trees take decades to grow.

    I love them too – but, yes, maybe in a recycled material would be very cool? Something like Trex?

    Did he pull that orchid out of the trash? What a beautiful table and what a sad plant.
