2020. The trend started with people posting pictures of elegant river tables
that looked exactly like the name suggests and got popular with the
hashtags #rivertable and #resintable. But, what exactly are they? How are
they made? And, how can you buy a good river table for your home? Let’s
check out a few interesting things about these tables and the factors to
consider when buying one.
Focus on the Art
One thing that sets river tables apart from other pieces of furniture is the
sophisticated artwork. Even though all tables have the same river-based
theme, they are pretty different. Each one is designed uniquely and features
an artwork that looks absolutely phenomenal.
Never can the two pieces of these tables look alike, and that’s what makes
the river table an excellent choice for people who want to add a touch of
style and drama to their home. You can also get a customized river table
that complements your interior theme. Be as specific as possible when giving
instructions for the design.
Cast Sentimental Items into the Resin
Another specialty of a river table is that you can cast jewels, sand, stones,
and other beach decor stuff on the resin to create a theme of your choice.
You can even cast sentimental pieces that you’d like to see every day or use
as a decor accessory. With these accessories on the table, your guests will
definitely take a look at the resin to understand the story behind the design.
Get Resin of Any Color
Transparent and neutral colors are most commonly used for resins but know
that resin can feature just about any color — be it a light beige shade or a
combination of bright colors. Add pop to the river table with vibrant and bold
colors. Or, keep the look minimal with transparent shades. The choice is
yours! If you have selected a specific design for your resin table, send its
picture to the manufacturer so that they can make a similar product or
modify the design to give it a more customized look.
Select a Base
You can choose a wooden or metal base for the legs of your table.
Remember that the base must be strong and durable enough to hold the
weight of the tabletop. Since there will be a lot of artwork and probably
accessories cast on the resin, the tabletop might weigh more than 300lbs.
Select the Size and Seating Space
River tables consist of live edge slabs, so they don’t really have any size.
Some slabs are extremely large, others are incredibly short. The design and
size of the table will depend on your preference. Just tell the manufacturer
how many people you’d like to seat at the table and they will design it
