The name of the Bloom Side Table is slightly deceiving. It would have people believe that it involves flowers of some sort. Instead, it revolves around a tree trunk. In a sense, a tree can be considered a bloom itself, if a very big one. Nevertheless, the nature-inspired tone is not lost on its audience.
Designed by Michael Thomas Host and Tanja Hinder of mth woodworks, a local woodworking company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Bloom Side Table sports a modern resin top and a salvaged cedar base. These two materials juxtapose natural material with manmade material for a wonderfully balanced effect.
Sometimes referred to as the iPod table, the Bloom Side Table's soft surface begs to be touched, according to the mth woodworks' website.
