Ear and Tongue Pulls

These pulls won't appeal to everyone, as they're rather odd and not at all what you'd find at a local kitchen and bath store.

This little-yet-heavy table pairs a walnut veneer with a concrete overlay to hit a utilitarian note that's sure to work alongside other furniture periods, especially if you like a mix-and-match look to a room. It's hefty (~65 lbs.), so it'll stay put, just make sure you don't place it ...Read more
