after a few days at the brimfield antique fair i woke up on saturday morning officially ready to rid my living room of my mid century furniture in exchange for a look that is more “rustic antique”. i’m trying to find a way to mix in some industrial-style antiques, along with some worn wooden pieces, so i’ve got “weathered” looks on the brain. so when i saw this email from designer robert andrew highsmith of workstead i was instantly smitten.
robert’s new workstead table is made of 100% reclaimed materials. the table is built from two steel stands formerly used to support the structure of a ship’s hull and the tabletop is an old recycled plank door. i love the base of the table and am already imagining a way to start a separate savings account to save up for this sucker. until that day, i’ll continue to pine away for this table over at the workstead site. if you’d like to chat with them about purchasing (the table is available for custom orders only + several finishes/heights are available upon request) just email stefanie right here.
