Zippers have come far from simple functionality. Edenwood, based in Ontario, is pushing the everyday zipper into new territory: furniture design. Their "Zipper Table" is one of the brand's themed tables and the outcome is a beautiful—and somehow seamless—combination of natural wood and hardware. But it wasn't a timely match made in heaven. Colin Forrester, owner of Edenwood, spent a year and a half with his team before they found the perfect wood for this table. Their choice, spalted maple, has a natural crevice which makes it easy to place the Paul Bunyan-sized zippers through the center of the piece.
In my opinion, it's a statement table to end all statement tables. You won't even need a centerpiece for get-togethers.
