My medium of choice has long since been steel. Steel creations are permanent and the options in their design are limitless. After years of creating wall and free-standing sculptures I recently decided to focus my creative efforts on functional sculptures in the form of contemporary end tables.
Probably the best place to put a small table is an entryway or foyer. Half moon tables in these locations provide the maximum amount of maneuverability while still providing significant space to put items on.
There are a lot of steps involved in taking an end table idea from concept to reality. After the style is decided, prototypes must be built, then refined, then measured, all before starting to cut the pieces for the finished product. It is a lot of work, but that is what it takes to design and build high-end contemporary end tables.
Instead of one of these tables, you could use a rectangular or square table for the same purpose. This will give you more table space, but will also extend some sharp points into the room, and will reduce the amount of remaining space in the room.
The sofa tables are great in every home and they can easily adapt to all interior decor styles that are available today. For example if your home is in a classic, traditional style, you can easily use a table made of wood with extra customization that will give it a more modern look. You can even have tables with glass tops that give your furniture piece a rather stylish and contemporary feel without detracting from the classic aspect of it all.
After defining a general style for the new tables, actual designs must be created. In some cases a finished product can be fabricated from a sketch alone. That is not the case with these tables however. Prototypes have to be built based on very rough sketch concepts. The tables have to ultimately be designed three-dimensionally by actually cutting and welding steel. The rough sketches are used as a basic starting point but the overall design is not completely determined beforehand. I use the "design as you go" approach" and each table takes shape on the fly.
