It's tough to keep up with the latest modern twists being put on pieces of home decor, but the Scott Garcia 'Embedded Meanings' project takes the cake, making classic look contemporary with mind-bending embellishments.

The designer dipped two tables in concrete and decided to add contrasting touches to draw the eye to what were once average pieces. The beautiful architecture of the bases are highlighted due to their odd, juxtaposing adornments, like the side table that is skewered by an antique lamp or the coffee table that drips with implanted lace.

The tables of the Scott Garcia Embedded Meanings project were dug up in junkyards and turned into the striking cement structures, proving that even old trash can be transformed into interior treasures with the right touch.
