Wood + Metal = Brickmaster's Table Trend


A steel base and planks of wood can make one gorgeous table. I first saw this trend at Restoration Hardware with their classic Brickmaker's Table than similar images started to pop up around the web. The table was originally used in Belgium as a hard surface to cool and cut bricks, with a sturdy steel base it was the perfect solution. Though beware if you are not Popeye strong to move a 200lb table this might not be for you! Scouting the net I have found a few alternates that will give you the same look and not break the bank or your back!


Brickmaster's Table, very handsome and weighs 200lbs!



Sundance Brickmaker's Table




Urban Occasional Table





Modular Coffee Table


The trend can also be seen in the Fulton Media Center




The less expensive Bengal Coffee Table

It's a yes from me, absolutely. Makes an incredibly strong statement, yet think it's a very versatile piece.

Love the industrial look. That typical design thought scares me bc I can totally envision myself repeatedly kicking the metal base with my poor bare toes!
