We’re all about versatility in design here at The Coolector and that’s why we’re always on the site of Sean Woolsey and his awesome line up of designer furniture. The latest piece to have caught our eye is the brilliant looking Pong Springs Table which, as the name may suggest, doubles as both a table tennis table and a dining table which serves the purpose of doubling its usefulness.
Released as a celebration of Sean Woolsey Studio’s 10 year anniversary, this magnificently crafted Pong Springs Table doesn’t come cheap, with a lofty price tag of some $11,500. Though, as with all things in life, you get what you pay for and the quality of this impeccable piece of designer furniture really is second to none both in terms of the materials used and the high calibre of the craftsmanship.
Celebrating Sean Woolsey Studio’s 10th anniversary in business, they decided to create an all-new ping pong table that is refined and in keeping with their extremely high standards of timeless and meticulously crafted design. The design inspiration for the Pong Springs Table came from the relaxed vibes of Palm Springs mixed with its mid-century design aesthetic – a winning combination in our opinion here at Coolector HQ.
The Sean Woolsey Studio Pong Springs Table ($11,500) will look as stunning ten years from now as it does today as a result of just how well made it is and how timeless the design is. It goes without saying that good designs last throughout the years and get better with age and this table is no exception. The main playing surface is crafted out of hand-selected solid American Black Walnut which is a mighty luxurious material that makes it stand out from the crowd.
The exterior is of the Pong Springs Table is banded with a solid rock maple edge which means no laminates and no veneers. It’s entirely AAA grade solid hardwoods which has been grown in the U.S.A. The table sits on a solid steel frame that is powder-coated to deliver a fine finish that will last for many years to come. The net for the ping pong table is made out of cane and aged brown leather, and allows for easy tightening adjustment as well as comes off in seconds to turn the table into a dining table/conference table. As a dining/conference table, it has more than enough space to seat up to 10 people.
Devil in the Detail
This fantastic piece from Sean Woolsey Studio includes two custom-made walnut paddles with the brand’s Special 10-year anniversary logo, 3 star balls, and a wall-mounted rack to display the paddles and balls because they look so cool that you’re definitely going to want to have them up on display.
Given the $11,500 price tag, you’d expect the Pong Springs Table to be chock full of fine features and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Other stand out elements of the design include the fact it is finished with a natural, food-safe, hand-rubbed oil and wax finish that is low VOC (and food safe when dry) and environmentally friendly while offering protection.
