Brunelle Side Table
Courtesy Double Noir Brunelle Side Table

Quebec-based Double Noir manufactures clear acrylic tables containing actual tree trunk sections and cuts. Catherine Bolduc founded the company less than a year ago and makes the tables in a factory owned by her family, which has been in the acrylic manufacturing business for 61 years. The wood is locally sourced from mill overruns or trees felled by storms. The Brunelle side table, one of three designs at the show, features seven birch tree trunks in an 18”-tall by 10”-square acrylic block. It weighs 75 pounds.
