This recycled coffee table is made from an old mining cart. Over a century ago, the base of the table was used in a French mine. Ducôté Design made some alterations, including a glass table top, turning it into a handsome furniture piece.

The black steel frame gives the table an industrial feel. The historical context also makes it a great conversation starter. This recycled coffee table is best utilized in a home without young children, with other modern, minimalist furniture and decor. The table top is slightly raised, allowing one to place small items underneath. However, the core is open so in terms of storage it isn't ideal. It would also be advisable to place some sort of grip or stopper around the wheels to prevent floor damage.
