Object of My Affection: Railroad Tie Dining Table
How cool would it be to host a dinner party on this uber-stylish table from Vivaterra? I'm a huge fan of the pairing of knotty, weathered wood with metal, and those angular leg lines keep the whole design from becoming overly rustic. The wood - a mix of pine, teak, and ironwood - is made up of reclaimed railroad ties, complete with peg-filled spike holes. Can't beat a table that doubles as a conversation starter.
Bonus points to the person who thought up those fantastic, blobby centerpieces (peat? moss?). What a unique design element - they're like tiny landscapes! Quirky pieces like those send the stylemeter of a room into the stratosphere.
