Salvaged elements of rustic beauty and heavy industry fuse together to create this beautiful recycled coffee table by designer Thomas Troisch. Troisch lives in a port city, and he drew inspiration for his piece from the by-gone era of majestic ocean-liners, with their polished wooden decks and hand-hammered copper boiler plates. To create the table, the designer combined a single 6 x 3½′, 3″ thick salvaged ponderosa pine slab top with an all-copper base, stacking them into a design infused with the spirit of recycling.
