Scott Antique Markets: Part 1

For some reason I didn't equate Scott Antique Markets with original furniture design and was happily surprised to find out how wrong I was. Above is a console table designed and built by Ken Bizzell (404.771.9245, kbiz1 (at) bellsouth.net). To me it's the perfect balance of industrial edge, clean lines and a creative twist with the tall height of the top made from barn tin. This design is also available in a matching side and coffee table.
Ken fabricates the hip base of this round coffee table with steel, circle-cut. So love this.
More clean lined pieces. This ottoman is available in a natural fabric too. Also love the demilune pieces in the back
A lamp base with a beautiful blue-green patina.
Tony McCray of Rust in Peace, (404.944.5533) is the designer behind these fabulous repurposed pieces. All make a unique statement, just one (or two, in the case of the mirror stands) could boost the whole look of a room.
Last summer I posted about the amazing zinc topped tables Dave Lennard (941.232.2925) creates (go here to see more). He also had a large selection of mounted goat skulls.Here's one of Dave's salvaged wood coffee tables with alot of great character.This is a close-up - but not of the wood piece you just saw. This one is concrete! - fabricated from the top surface of Dave's piece by Richard Taylor of Flat Earth Designs (to-the-trade and at Round Top)
I'll be doing a whole post on more of Richard's work next week. In the meantime, you can check out last year's post It's Not Leather, It's Concrete! See the theme here...

A pastor by day, Brewster McLeod of Lexington, KY (859.552.0304, stainlesssteel111 (at) yahoo.com) creates amazing sculptural pieces.
This spring is completely balanced - no small feat of engineering. Couldn't you see this as a focal point in a garden?
Another inventive table with a unique base made of salvaged machinery pieces.
Wrapping up with a bit of humor - Brewster's version of a Shade Tree, replete with vintage sun glasses!

All these designers do custom work and are super nice as well - the best combination.

That 'wooden' table is actually concrete??? How cool is that! The round table in your second to last photo is gorgeous!!!

A vendor at Scott Market told me that the restriction for antiques was relaxed in order to fill vacancies caused by the downturn in the economy. But who cares the age as long as the piece is attractive, right?

Wow! Those tables are amazing! I especially love that first coffee table. Gorgeous! I went antiquing yesterday, but didn't see any new pieces like those. Thanks for sharing.
