Out of Sight Out of Mind?

At JOHNHOUSHMAND we are continuously looking for unexpected beauty in trees, glass, and metal.  One of our most recent sources of inspiration has come from a surprising place:  underground.

JOHNHOUSHMAND - Root Table No. 164.1

The root of a tree is something that most people don’t think twice about, but we sure do.  In fact, this Cherry Root Coffee Table (No. 164.1) is only the second root table we’ve ever made.  This is a special piece as roots are particularly hard to find intact and in good shape for use as a base for a beautiful coffee table.

We love the dimensionality of the wood as it fuses with the glass from both sides.  The ends of the roots have been given a new life as they pierce through the starfire glass to truly create a one-of-a-kind piece.  From the ground, to our shop in Hobart, this root has already been on a quite a journey… the next stop?  Back down under to a beautiful home in Australia.
