A Coffee Table with Candy in Mind

HUW Challenge coffee table edition

I have to admit, I totally got lucky on this part of my Hurry Up & Wait Challenge.  I had been admiring this inspiration design of a living room that housed a very unique coffee table by Oly Studios for years.

Living Room Concept

Here is my design concept sheet I created for the coffee table to keep my direction clear.  I wanted it to be a statement piece, like the one in the inspiration room.  I loved the idea of having an unexpected material such as resin, metal, or shell.


I had planned on making this furniture piece a DIY project taking inspiration from my design concept sheet, when BAM, there it was, my dream table was sitting in my local Home Goods.  I was almost in shock when I noticed it in the clearance section.  It was like the design heavens had opened up and shot a beam of light upon it.

Everyone who sees it is a bit amazed because they have never seen anything else quite like it.  The white resin round table reminds me so much of that old-fashioned ribbon Christmas candy, so I call it my candy table. (Sorry, no licking allowed!)
