These stained furniture designs by Peter Marigold look as if each crack in the surface is bleeding a darker shade of brown. While this sounds slightly grotesque, the actual result is intriguing and different than most wooden furniture on the market.

To achieve this effect, the steel part of the furniture is doused with acid, which makes it react with the substance as well as the timber. This is where the bleeding effect comes in, making the cabinet designs extremely unique. Overall the size and shape of these pieces by Peter Marigold are quite straightforward, but it's these subtle touches that really allow the artist's creativity to come through. The wooden material gives each design a natural look too, making it an ideal addition to a cottage-like home.
