Old Factory Carts Turned into Coffee Tables

Old furniture can add a wealth of charm to a room especially if it has personal sentimental value. A historical piece with a story attached to it only heightens the mystique. This is the case with the wooden factory cart that has been transformed into a living room coffee table.

Made of North American solid white oak, dating back to the early 1900s, it was once used to transport furniture, fabric and supplies across the factory floor. Although the restoration project by specialist craftsmen has involved the careful cleaning and oiling of the cart-table, it still bears the marks of its history. Who would want it any other way?

The restoration hardware company have a number of these furniture factory carts and each one is an original and different from the rest. They also have their original cast iron wheels, bolts and plates.

These old furniture items are perfect for both the country cottage look and also certain types of city based interiors. With wooden floorboards or better yet, Berber-style carpets, this can add a wonderfully old-wordly charm to a room.
