What materials are used to make coffee tables?
Coffee tables can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, glass, stone, and even plastic. However, in recent years, eco-friendly materials such as cork and recycled materials have become popular choices for coffee table construction. Natural fibres like osier, lakeshore bulrush, hemp rope, and cotton rope are also being incorporated into coffee tables giving a retro or rustic style to a space. Portuguese stones, such as Marble Pele de Tigre and Marble Estremoz, are often used as table tops for their unique, expressive veins. Solid wood is another common material used for coffee tables, with popular options including oak, walnut, and ash. Ultimately, the choice of materials for a coffee table depends on the desired style, durability, and sustainability of the piece.
Cork coffee tables
Cork is one of the materials used extensively in DAM’s coffee tables collection due to its versatility, durability, and sustainability as an organic material. Three types of cork – agglomerated dark cork, composite dark cork, and composite light cork – are combined with other natural fibres such as wicker baskets or hemp ropes for added texture and visual interest.
Amorim’s is one of the suppliers used in DAM’s coffee tables. The company prides itself on using natural and recyclable cork that is harvested every nine years without harming the tree. This eco-friendly material gives a unique texture to each piece, creating a unique look and offering durability.
Coffee Tables with Portuguese Stones
DAM’s coffee tables are not only eco-friendly but also tell unique stories of Portuguese culture and nature. The limestone from Sintra like Rosa Negrais with reddish colour with intricate wine-coloured veins is an example. Other it the limestone Alpinina with Fine-grained with stylolites and thin calcitic and ferruginous veins and fairly crystallized where we sometimes can find some traces of our oceans. And there are the marbles from Évora like Estremoz or Pele de Tigre with fine to medium granoblastic texture and with dark grey or beige veins.
