This surreal cocktail table from the 1970s was draped in fabric and then coated with resin, giving it a strange rigidity. It's up for auction on eBay with a BuyItNow price of $495. Plasticized fabric-covered coffee table (eBay, thanks Michael-Anne Rauback!)


  1. Ok now don’t call me a troll, who says this must be from the 1970’s? The seller doesn’t seem to be completely legit to me (too many typos in the product info, etc). I call it a hoax.

  2. And here I was visualizing some elegant, billowing white sheet that was mystifyingly frozen in time. Sadly, this looks like someone just hasn’t finished unpacking the furniture for a sidewalk bistro. Interesting idea, nonetheless.

  3. The idea might have some merit, but this looks exactly like my old patio set when I’d wrap it up in plastic before winter. And sorry but I hate the colour *wince*.

    On the other hand, KAIZA’s link shows some pretty darn cool stuff: The Essey illusion tables are impressive!

  4. My guess is that the table wasn’t draped in fabric and then coated with resin, but rather resin was added to the fabric and then the resin impregnated fabric was draped over the table and then arranged. It could be done with about a gallong of epoxy but it’d be a godawfully messy process.
