This is a review of the Design Toscano Mermaid of Magellan's Cove Glass-Topped Sculptural Table
The mermaid table by Design Toscano is beautifully crafted. Mermaids are a particular theme of Design Toscano, making sculptures, lamps, bottle openers, all of which are both elegant and yet practical.
The table stands at just under 60cm tall, which is an ideal height to sit at with the table being to your side. The 3D mermaid is made from crushed stone that is bonded with resin. If you are sat at the table with a drink you will see the mermaid looking up through the table at you (as long as your table is clean!).
The glass and mermaid are not actually permanently joined together. There are suction cups to attach the glass to the mermaids arm. This is handy to be able to dismantle and move the table safely using the mermaid arms. It also makes it easy to fully clean. What it is worth noting is you need to add a little bit of water to the suction cups for them to stick firmly otherwise the table won't hold.
This table is quite the conversational piece. The detail from the scales to the shells and her long flowing hair look to have been lovingly hand painted. This no doubt would look great in any mermaid loving home whether small or big as she is a manageable table size.
As you can see above, this table would also suit an outdoor environment and would finish off a pool side perfectly. If you would like to put this in your garden, you don't have to worry with its construction, being made of glass, stone and resin.
- Can be used indoors or outdoors
- Beautifully hand painted
- Excellent quality
- Sturdy table
- 3D, 360 shape
- Perfect as a gift
- Suction cups require moisture
This is an incredibly stunning mermaid table perfect for any kind of home and indoors or outdoors as long as you have saved up for her, she would make a wonderful gift for a mermaid or lover of mermaids.
This is a review of the SPI Cast Aluminum Octopus Glass Top End Table.
This SPI Octopus and glass table is a life like large octopus made from cast aluminium with its eight tentacles that have suckers all the way up the inside.
There is fantastic detail in this table, from the tentacles to the shape of the head to its eyes. There is a green verdigris finish that has been applied for extra effect. It also continues to draw your eyes too it as it looks so life like.
To assemble only requires you to add the glass top to the octopus tentacles by slotting it into place. Making it easy to wipe down and clean when needed. It is a solid structure because it is also heavy at 22kg in weight. This isn't a table you wouldn't want to particularly move often.
This is a work of art rather than a table as there are no table legs, it looks like an actual octopus carrying a solid piece of glass in the air. At 56 cm in height it is a nice height to sit a chair next to and through the glass you see a bold array of tentacles twisting together.
- Piece of art work
- Strong and sturdy
- Easy to clean
- Suits a nautical home
- Suits only particular rooms
If you have always wanted a larger than life octopus in your home, that has attitude but also has a functional use this is will suit your home.
This is a review of the Big Living Driftwood Coffee Table
This lovely crafted table by Big Living is hand built using wash up drift wood. I personally love driftwood, the story each piece of wood must have.
This table is 40 cm in height meaning that it is quite low and works more as a coffee table than a sit at table. I have to say if you have a puppy or do who loves to chew that be careful to put this in a room out of bounds so as to not destroy the base of your table.
The driftwood is held firmly together by small nails and like a jigsaw has been pieced together to work as a solid unit. The table top is glass. Due to its intricate design it is a little fragile to move as too much pressure to the sides of the driftwood could damage it so I would take care and treasure it like a gift from the sea.
- Smells of the sea
- Beautifully designed
This driftwood table by Big Living is a beautifully sculptured table, to suit a beach house or nautical home.
This is a review of the Triple Whale Round Wooden Table, a gorgeous little end table which would suit the corner of a room or the end of a sofa.
The Triple Whale Round Table by Zeckos is an eye- catching table for mermaids, sailors and anyone inspired by Moby Dick.
The table comes flat packed and is rather lightweight in comparison to other nautical themed tables. The table is made from wood and is trimmed with rope.The whales are 2D not 3D but with three whales combined together makes a sturdy and solid table. The blue and green stripes to the table top provide a rustic nautical feel.
The table is 76 cm in height making it quite a tall little table. Well I guess it has to be when three whales hold it up. The blue and green stripes to the table top provide a rustic nautical feel.
This would work best at the end of a sofa or for the corner of a living room to place a lamp and maybe your house phone.
- Whale tastic!
- Rustic, vintage look
- Eye catching design
- Perfect little round table that would suit a few positions in your living room
- Requires assembly
This is a whale-tastic lightweight wooden table that straight away brings a nautrical theme to your home
