Last week at Robin Wade Furniture is all about slab furniture—one of Robin's specialties! Slab furniture typically focuses on the wood's natural shape and beauty, much like this coffee table made by Robin. Slab furniture has an earthy, rustic appeal to it that works in a variety of styles and rooms; it easily fits into the most modern of homes, but also in the most traditional because of its innate beauty. Usually, slab furniture are pieces like dining and coffee tables, but if one searches around, they can also find chairs and benches made out of slabs. Here at Robin Wade, tables are the specialty, and the shown coffee table, in my opinion, is one of Robin's best pieces. This particular coffee table is quite large, thick, and sturdy. This coffee table is warm, it's friendly, it's even stylish and just a little bit off-beat. This piece is one-of-a-kind, just like all of Robin's hand-made furniture.
