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.
Exhibitions: If you're a professional preparing to hold an exhibition to advertise your business or an organisation, a trestle table is a must. They are easily transported to wherever your location is, and because they are capable of holding a spread of up to 300kg, your display can be as spectacular as you can possibly make it, ensuring that it catches the eye of any passer by. It is also ideal for car boot sales, allowing you to make money on the bits and bobs that you no longer use.
An alternative to the long rectangular head table is a "captain's table", which is also a long table, but with seating all around it instead of only on one side. This can be an excellent way to be able to accommodate the dates or spouses of your bridal party at the same table as your attendants. Some couples might not like this as well as the traditional head table, as they will not be facing their guests without an obstruction, but it does lend itself to conversation more than the long single-sided table does. Another factor to keep in mind with the captain's table is its very large size; some venues might not have a suitable place in the room for one.
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.
One of the most difficult parts of the wedding planning for many couples is the seating at the reception. Not only do you have to figure out how to arrange all of your guests, there is also the matter of the head table to be decided. Here are some of the more popular options for head tables, along with the pros and cons of each.
This table is usually placed in the living room near a sofa and it gives the room a nice, organized look. Some of the small items that people like to store on are TV and other home theater remote controls, magazines and even small sewing supplies or pens, etc. The functionality can be easily increased by adding a small cabinet just underneath it so that it can now easily store drink bottles as well. Pouring the drink and serving it has become just that much easier with such a table!
