This unique coffee table was constructed from salvaged antique railroad ties of tropical woods. These ties somehow plentiful a century ago are today a rare find. They are set in bronze legs, crafted out of recycled bronze in the lost-wax casting technique. The brass inlay work interplays with the grain pattern found in the wood, creating a strong composition of design and materials.
