VOLKSWARE ‘METERWARE’ SCRAP TABLES

Volksware’s  Meterware scrap tables bring new meaning to “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Not only do we love the endearing combination of mis-matched table parts, but we love the way in which the tables are produced and distributed: discarded tables are assembled as an infinitely long table, then on request, a piece of the table is sawed off to the customer’s desired length. It’s like Bounty’s ‘Select-A-Size’ paper towels- for furniture! Like Volksware’s clothing carpet , the tables are part of Volksware’s METERWARE Shop .
