The ocean meets land in this set of unique furniture created by artist Rivka Wilkins and woodworker Jared Davis. Their collaboration, which includes a bench and a coffee table, combines decorative layered resin art with a walnut slab of reclaimed wood. Wilkins, known for her wave-inspired paintings, adorned Davis’ large tables with brilliant swirling blues and incredible textures that recall the sudsy ocean tide. She captures the sea in such a life-like way that these pieces will make you feel as though you were really at the shore.
Most of the walnut slab is covered in Wilkin’s dazzling design. Her glossy waves are complemented by a sliver of unpainted wood with a natural edge. Davis has covered this part with a hard-wax oil, which gives the walnut a low-gloss finish while protecting it from spills. Each piece boasts flat bar steel legs, and this addition makes the overall aesthetic feel contemporary. Coupled with the one-of-a-kind surface decoration, the table and bench are instant statement-makers in any room.
Both of these pieces are available in Davis’ Etsy shop, WoodWorksbyJared.
