What does a metal sculpture artist do when he needs a new challenge? For me, that meant creating a new line of contemporary end tables. I will now take you through my reasoning for this endeavor, the idea process, and then the actual fabrication of a finished end table.
Furniture made of acrylic has a strong impact in any given room because it preserves that light, transparent and airy feel and look transforming an otherwise boring room into a beauty. Such items such as acrylic coffee tables make great additions for small interior spaces because they serve the small crowded rooms perfectly well without making them look overdone. The tables serve as decorative but functional items. You will love how they enhance the beauty of your rug or carpet.
A flat surface is about the only standard requirement of a coffee table, everything else is negotiable. This means that you can custom design a table using any materials that you please. The only consideration that you should take into account is the issue of safety; glass should be tempered glass and sharp corners should be smoothed slightly to prevent accidents. Other than these considerations you have free rein.
A final head table idea is for the bride and groom to sit at a table with their parents, the maid of honor and best man, and the spouses or dates of the honor attendants. This can be an excellent idea for a couple who has a very small wedding party or an unmanageably large one (the rest of the bridal party would sit among the other guests). It is also a very nice way to honor the parents of the bride and groom. This can be a lovely head table, as long as the newlyweds do not have a complicated family situation (ie, hostile parents or step-parents).
Moreover, each culture and nation has its own ideas of what looks beautiful, elegant, or atmospheric. Asian table settings have their own distinct style, as opposed to an African dining design, and both of these differ from western table ideas. Even the different times of the year have their influence upon the way that you would set the table. There is such a thing as a Christmas Day and Halloween table settings, and more, each of which has its own stylistic message.
Once the overall look has been achieved, work can then begin on a finished version. Measurements must be taken and angles must be figured. There is a lot of math involved. Now each individual piece of steel can be cut and precisely fit to another. All connecting points must be hand welded and each weld must be hand ground. The last step is a chemical oxidation process to turn the steel either brown or black and then a few coats of clear paint are applied to protect the colored finish.
