Just because it's a table now, that does not mean that it always was one. The Noddy Boffin Spare Table reminds users that even furnishings have stories to tell. This unique piece -- like every other wooden item -- began its life as a tree, but it served another very unexpected function for people before it was repackaged into a dining room fixture.

Once the alley for a 10-pin bowling lane in Melbourne, the Rock maple tabletop boasts a beautifully smooth surface and some of the iconic features from its previous life. Several dark and light dots can be found embedded into the hardwood, once functioning as aisle markings and now referencing its past. The Noddy Boffin Spare Table is further enhanced with an industrial aesthetic with its bright yellow and creased steel legs. It would certainly become the pièce de résistance of a room.
