I didn’t leave England until my early twenties and have loved Earl Grey tea for as long as I can remember. I even went to University in Newcastle Upon Tyne where Charles Grey, the second Earl of Grey was born and raised and my favourite way of drinking that great mans tea is in a china mug with a big old blob of honey mixed in to it. So my inspiration for this table is the humble honey bee.
The table top is comprised of maple and walnut hexagons mimicking a honeycomb with a hive like angled edge treatment while the legs are stylized bees’ wings. The top itself is also a slight hexagon (tough to see from these pics though)
Hope you like it :)
