This magnificent live-edge walnut and steel coffee table has four ammonite fossils embedded into the wood to create a stunning and literally timeless piece – the largest embedded fossil is an 11.5cm cleoniceras ammonite from Madagascar which is an awe-inspiring 120 million years old. The fossils and the 5cm thick slab of wood have been carefully matched together, and teamed with some seriously industrial steel legs for a strong modern rustic feel.
This table was featured in the ‘Vogue’s Show Home’ section of April 2016’s British Vogue magazine:
“HANDMADE IN BRIGHTON is a new artist-designer-maker partnership creating innovative furniture designs using the highest quality materials, such as this magnificent ammonite fossil and slab walnut coffee table. Their style is retro industrial and modern rustic, contrasting natural materials (live-edge wood, fossils, slate and cowhide) with industrial manmade ones (steel, concrete, copper and glass) to create show-stopping statement pieces. Also see them in April ’16 World of Interiors magazine ‘Design Report’.”
We can also create console tables and large double-width coffee tables using ammonites and walnut, with a choice of leg styles – please enquire if you are interested in these options to create a totally unique centrepiece for your entrance hall or living room.
Equally, if the table pictured is no longer available, a similar one can be made-to-order for you. However because each piece of wood is spectacularly different they are, of course, all unique – we will send you a photograph of the table we are crafting for you as your order progresses. A maintenance kit to keep your table in tip-top condition is available to order.

The inspiration: There’s a certain magic that lingers around fossils, and it feels like a privilege somehow to work with them. We team the individual fossils with a specific piece of walnut and spend a long time positioning them so that the curves of the fossils work with the movement of the grain in the wood.
