Made from solid Walnut, Walnut Burr, solid Sycamore and Ripple Sycamore, the Blossom Coffee Table has been beautifully crafted by hand with meticulous attention to detail. The solid Walnut legs have been shaped entirely by hand to mirror the inlayed ripple sycamore petals on the shelf. Further enhancing the beautiful organic feel, a slice of solid sycamore is revealed along each of the sides, contrasting with the dark walnut burr, and disappearing into each leg top.
Below, the floating shelf also enjoys beautifully shaped curving slices to each side, this time revealing solid walnut that disappears into each leg. The underside of the shelf is as beautiful as the top, with more sumptuous walnut burr veneer, although never normally seen it’s nice to know it’s there.
I wanted to portray a sense of the piece growing as in nature, with the legs having extended beyond the top, and the sycamore bursting open from within as a newly blossoming flower.
If you’d like to see this beautiful coffee table in person, it will be exhibited for sale at the Dundee Art Fair from 24th to 26th May 2019 at the Caird Hall Dundee, as part of an exhibition by the Scottish Furniture Makers Association.
