These highly customizable lightweight concrete square side, end or coffee tables with leaf impressions from real leaves can add a solid presence to nearly any room or outdoor environment. The fossil-like leaf imprints soften the brutalist material of cement into an organic and rustic presence. The imprints have some texture to them, which offers visual and tactile interest, but will not tip over glasses, vases, or any other tabletop items placed on the surface. All works have natural variations in color and design due to leaf availability, material variations, weather, and other factors. Finishes are typically matte to lightly satin. Weight varies from ~30 lb (12″ square) to ~60lb (24″ square) depending on size.
Possible foliage impressions include (pictured respectively) artichoke, rhubarb, nasturtium, redwood, smoke bush, tobacco, sage, acanthus, various ferns, grass blades, corn husk, geranium, burdock, potato, echium, and many more, although availability is highly seasonal.
Leaves can be composed in various ways, whether they are draping over the top and sides, numerous or minimal, placed in a “natural” way or more designed pattern. Different varieties of leaves can be combined on a single piece. Leaves are often grouted with two or three different colors to emphasize their botanical detail. Contact for questions about leaf recommendations, availability, or for more images of particular leaf designs or more ideas. We have likely cast over 200 varieties of plants, and we continue to love to experiment with new leaves!
These square tables are available in a wide variety of sizes, from 12″ square top to 24″ square. Each size except the 20″ square has a 1″ thick inset base to aid in lifting the pieces and give them a slightly floating look, but the “feet” can also be left off for a shorter, seamless look.
