Needlework as Furniture

I saw this sitting in a fancy-schmancy furniture shop yesterday on the Utrechtsestraat.  It is, I guess, a little table to set little things on.  It is crocheted, which is why it caught my eye.  It’s a lovely example of needlework that is pretty, functional, and designer cool.  I find it inspiring!

    How cool! I wonder how they made it stiff enough to use as a table? Did they treat it with some kind of stiffening agent, or is it made of a stiff type of material? I love it!

    There are lots of posts on ravelry speculating on how this was made. Dipped in resin seems to be the way. It’s cool in any case.

    Oh wow that’s awesome. I wonder how they got it all stiff and stuff to make it square.
