Levitas Oak Table With Glass Legs By Icon

This gorgeous natural wood table with great-shaped glass legs was a mix of rustic and glamour.  There are SO many wooden tables here in NYC, I guess one may wonder why this particular table in Italy struck me.  Icons is from Venice, and prides themselves on hand selecting particular woods for different designs.  The wood-centric company uses old oak taken from the mooring posts of the Venetian lagoon.  It is recycled, and is water-based, therefore showing lots of craggy knots and aged finish left by the wearing over time. Somehow, they transform this old wood it to something completely new, but holding a special provenance.  Add the chunky glass legs and the seemingly unadorned shape and raw, unadulterated finish, it reads as a modern piece quite well.
