Cool "pool" table for the discriminating swimmer at large!



Wendy, from the blog of(f) the deep end fame sent a link to this "pool" table right when I was downloading the above images for the blog. So, it is a case of either "great minds think alike" or she understands how poor my taste is in regards to furniture.

The table is being blogged about all over cyberspace but here is the best writeup on it here at WooHome.com:

"...The UK-based design firm Freshwest showed this table at Tent London, the international creative design event. Designers Freshwest successfully combine narrative and humour in their conceptual design - “Pool Table“. “Pool Table is made from 50mm acrylic with miniature diving board, reflected and refracted light in such a way that it resembled the depth and hue of an actual swimming [pool].” It even features a miniature diving board on one end to complete the effect. The bad thing is that the “Pool Table” is just a concept right now, but I’m sure that this design has a lot of potential. ..."

Looks like a great table. I was reintroduced to swimming from a friend and am enjoying it very much. Great pics and idea.
