Concrete and Steel Tables by Joshua Howe for culture + commerce project
Designed for the Hudson, NY gallery entitled culture + commerce project, these new concrete and steel tables by Joshua Howe of 4onute design of Chatham, NY are both “elegant and sturdy.” Fabricated by hand using tinted, waxed concrete and natural steel, the tables are at home in industrial lofts and renovated factories, yet they are refined enough to work in metropolitan apartments and flats.

Nxting Tables Reinvent a Classic
The collection of tables by Joshua Howe includes Nesting Tables (Nxting), a Rolling Cart, Coffee Table, and serving trays. The Nxting Tables present a contemporary twist on a twentieth-century classic—you might say the style and material creates a bridge to the new millennium. The mix of concrete surfaces and steel frames makes these tables-within-tables sleek and sexy. Use them for everything from displaying art tomes to holding glasses of wine or port.
Howe’s Rolling Cart presents a more industrial look with its solid casters and sturdy shelves. The concrete does, however, temper the clean feel of the steel, transforming the piece into something with a broader appeal. Any of these tables by Joshua Howe and culture + commerce project offers an exciting alternative to furniture constructed of more common materials. I think the Rolling Cart would be a fabulous dining cart for contemporary boutique hotels—I, for one, would love to have a cosmopolitan and a chocolate mousse served on the sleek tinted concrete surface.
