Tressel Table Co.
Guess who got herself a brand new table? Yes, That's right! After years of trying to find the perfect table, while painting away on my third-hand teeny tiny Ikea table given to me free 4 1/2 years ago, I finally bought myself a table. It's 100% handmade in Melbourne, by a very clever dude called Patrick. Patrick's 25. And I'm 25 too. So already, I feel a connection there. I always love supporting young makers. I firmly believe in the idea of what goes around, comes around. So I jumped when I saw Patrick's tables featured on The Design Files. It was exactly what I was looking for. The size, the height, the colour. So of course, I ordered myself one! Let me say, how amazing Patrick is. Not only did he whip up my table so quickly, he also hand delivered and, listen to this... carried it up single-handedly, my 8 flights of atrocious stairs! I did not even need to lift my finger really! How wonderful. Thank you so much Patrick for your wonderful table. I'm sitting at it as we speak. Ah. The smell of freshly polished and sawed wood. My table is really well done and it even has two layers of coating! Patrick mentioned how he does an espresso test on his tables. One can easily wipe off Espresso and there won't be any staining. Pretty amazing for a handmade table I reckon. I'm already anticipating all the painting adventures this table and I will go through together. Thanks once again Patrick!
