Recycled Tire Coffee Table & Design Star Recap
I watched the first episode of Design Star season 6, and the item that stuck out most to me was a fabulous coffee table/chest with a very interesting and intricate patterned surface. Turns out, the chest is covered with recycled rubber tires! Awesome. I did a little detective work and discovered that the recycled tire chests are made from a company called Tread in the U.K.; the eco-friendly company makes all kinds of other fabulous recycled tire objects. I especially love their recycled tire frames!
This awesome chest makes me wonder how awkward it is to work with recycled tire tread. It would be interesting to try to DIY a tire tread object. Anyone out there have experience working with tires?
Design Star contestants Cathy and Leslie designed a really elegant Great Room featuring the tire tread coffee table. This was definitely one of my favorite rooms in the house.
Can’t wait to see what else the designers get up to! Tonight’s episode features the famous White Box challenge!
Design Star episode 2 airs tonight (Monday, July 18th) on HGTV at 9pm Eastern/8 Central
