The Buddha Coffee Table Turns Everyday Items into Art

 - Nov 14, 2011
A standard side table does not presume to be considered anything more than a conveniently elevated surface but the Buddha Coffee Table does enter into the realm of the artistic. Marc de Groot created these substantial block-like furnishings in stainless steel and wood but creatively incorporated a cluster of circular excisions for further aesthetic appeal.

The remaining level tabletop can accommodate a number of items from snack platters and drinking glasses to books but the gaping holes ask something else of the user. The various sized cavities might hold statues, vases or floor lamps, but the choice is really up to you. What is for certain with respect to the Buddha Coffee Table is that the specific selection and placement of your possessions will become a creative collaboration with the original sculptural work.
