Worn down railway sleepers can be a strange thing to draw design information from but designer Egbert Pos from Netherlands thins otherwise. His design inspiration for a coffee table was worn out sleepers which were packed in resin to get back to their original shape. He then took help of LED lights to finish a highly illuminated coffee table that also has the capacity to change colors.
The table has been finished using reclaimed teak and measures 180 by 80 by 45cm. The coffee table can be a great idea for household parties especially the one that falls on Halloween where the rest of the surroundings are scarily dark.
Coffee tables are usually a decorative piece. So there are a lot of different designs when it comes to this furniture piece. People are no longer satisfied with a simple and plain design so they want more. Usually the most common choice is wood but there are also a lot of glass coffee table that seem to be very appreciated. This coffee table is even more special because it’s made of sleepers. This is definitely something original and different.
If you can ignore that, it seems pretty…interesting. It could look interesting in a modern and non-conformist interior. But other than that, I’m not sure a lot of people would like to have it in their homes.
