Charles Kaisin Turns the Dining Experience into a Forest

Kaisin is a Belgian designer who has created a forestry-infused table entitled 'The Fantasies of Charles.'

It's a 10-foot solid oak table built with trees that look like they naturally bloomed out of the surface. The table is supported by the trees that stand as table legs, some stopping at the table's surface while others jut all the way to the ceiling. The trunks that stick out of the surface of the table become functional candle holders.

The Fantasies of Charles seats 36 people and was finished off with gold flooring and surrounding white drapes with 36 birds flopping above. Some prominent guests who attended the dinner held in celebration of the table were Hurbert Geurrand-Hermes, Jean-Paul Gaultier and more.
