Hoof Lounge Tables by Samuel Wilkinson

From @samuelwilkinson, coffee and side tables with sharpened leg ends, "like a horse's hoof is trimmed before it is shod... so that the paint doesn't chip off from being either kicked or knocked when cleaning."

Says Wilkinson, "The main inspiration for the HOOF tables starts from the foot detail. I have always loved painted wooden chairs that have the end of the legs left as natural wood so that the paint doesn't chip off from being either kicked or knocked when cleaning. The leg ends of the table are sharpened at the foot - like a horse's hoof is trimmed before it is shod."

"This detail is emerged from continuous exploration and development of production techniques. The fine edge is created from the soft chamfer on the top and bottom. This gives the tables a tactile feel and clearly shows the solid wood construction."

"The foot detail is created by reversing the usual production process; most furniture details, which have a painted section and a natural part, are assembled, masked off, and then painted. Hoof will be painted first, then cut back. This detail also reminiscent of a knife trimmed pencil."
