Resin furniture is becoming increasingly popular because it gives a bold look and makes a statement. Why is it cooler than acrylic or glass furniture? Because resin furniture can show off some items inside and look very noticeable – it’s like a work of art! Would you like to see some examples? Here you are.
Dining tables and desks
A dining table or desk is an ideal piece to showcase some beautiful elements – there is a large top that can highlight something in resin. The resin is usually clear, it can be colorless or blue, for example, and the most popular example is living wood which looks very noticeable with resin. You can also find pieces with black resin and wood, they look stunning too. Such a desk or table is a nice way to add a natural touch to a modern space.
Consoles, coffee and side tables
Smaller tables are also a good idea for displaying something cool inside. It can be live edge wood, various herbs, branches and leaves, and even tree stumps! Clear resin makes all of these objects almost floating in the air – isn’t that an amazing statement?
