The Log Pile Coffee Table is an innovative piece of furniture designed by Alexander Purcell Rodrigues and manufactured at Los Angeles-based Purcell Living. The table is made to look as if it were an unevenly stacked pile of firewood, including the built-in pull-out drawers. It is available to purchase online at YLiving.
It represents an aesthetic formalization of lumber, creating a dialogue between the natural beauty of the wood and the methodical standardization of the rectangular construction of its sections. A thick glass tabletop is suspended on top of the pile, snuggly fitted between logs at each end, and hidden within its facade are drawers for added functionality.
