Oh lordy! The extreme levels of awesome are making me hot under the collar. Someone bring me a glass of water. Please. No, but seriously – could this be the hottest trestle table you’ve ever seen? Quite possibly, and you know it.

The man behind this super beautiful product is a young Belgian designer Ben Storms. Stroms is obsessed with bending the rules between forms, techniques and materials. I like him already. Titled ‘In Vein’, this marble trestle table looks just as affective as a mirror when leaned up against the wall. Too clever. The table represents simplicity, mobility and efficiency, while adding a layer of delicate luxury and vanity. Crazy beautiful. The question is, would you use it as a table or a mirror? I’m thinking I need two so I can do both. As long as the mirror makes me looks skinny, of course.
