New Resin and Stone Table Captures the Unique Beauty of the Caribbean Sea

HAMILTON 23 Water Table by Alexandre Chapelin resin furniture

Designer Alexandre Chapelin of LA TABLE has wowed us with his stunning resin coffee tables time and time again. Recently, the Saint Martin-based furniture maker has debuted his latest ocean-inspired model: HAMILTON 23.

Like his past creations, HAMILTON 23 employs resin, marble, and wood to evoke a sloping seabed. In homage to Chapelin's connection to the Caribbean, the table employs a beautiful color palette evocative of the local seascape. The dazzling, jewel-like blue of the resin beautifully contrasts the sand-colored shade of the marble to represent a sprawling beach. Furthermore, Chapelin has fittingly opted to use natural stones derived from the area, culminating in a bespoke piece that captures the unique beauty of the French West Indies.

While undeniably similar to his older work, this latest masterpiece also offers a unique take on Chapelin's distinctive aesthetic. Unlike other comparable creations, HAMILTON 23 is framed by “graphic and architectural” elements. Featuring bold, striped detailing along its sides, the table is slightly more stylized than his more natural-looking designs. Additionally, Chapelin has seemingly abandoned his typical asymmetrical style for a more balanced composition. Even with these slight changes, however, HAMILTON 23 retains the captivating, Caribbean-inspired aesthetic characteristic of LA TABLE.
