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.
The sweetheart table is another option for a head table. In this situation, the bride and groom are seated at a tiny table for two in a prominent spot in the reception room. The rest of the bridal party is seated with their dates or spouses, and are usually intermingled with the regular wedding guests. The sweetheart table can be very romantic, but some also believe that it is rude, as it isolates the newlyweds from the rest of the reception. (Because nobody wants to interrupt the bride and groom seated at a sweetheart table, they become very unapproachable.)
Long tables - These acrylic coffee tables are designed narrower, taking less space and maintaining the elegance. You can play around with the shapes when it comes to the long tables in that you can have emerald shaped diamond design or any other shape that adds elegance and class to your space. The long tables are great for areas that you want to keep simple and less crowded.
Dining: Have you ever invited guests over for dinner and then realised that you don't have enough space to seat them all? Your dining table just isn't big enough, or you don't even own one? Well, a trestle table can solve that problem. It can easily be used to increase your dining space. A four foot table can seat four to six people, and a six foot table can seat six to eight. And if you have a dining table too, these seats can be extra.
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.
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.
