Black on Black


Black can be a very dominating colour when its in a furniture setting due to it being so strong and dominating of everything else around it. Many people will say black furniture is a big no in any setting because of these reasons.

In saying this, I think in the right environment Black furniture can really stand out and be a strong statement piece.

I made 2 of these tables for a client in Melbourne's CBD. The setting was already very loaded with timber, floors, ceiling and windows. So more timber was just going to be a little much and just blend into everything else around it. Hence why making tables that look a little different to the rest of the place was a must. Due to the environment being a tattoo parlour and having quite a lot of black leather chairs and work benches, black tables, a good contrast.

Both tops were constructed from recycled Oregon, then finished with a black oiled stain. I then oiled the tops quite a few more times with a counter top oil. Leaving the tops with a smooth clean finish for drawing on and easy clean up.

Both sets of legs were made from 10mm bent steel, powder coated black.
