Carbon fiber furniture was always chic, but the only setback is its frail texture. However, wood on the other hand is sturdy and consistent. The guys at Choate Carbon amalgamated the goodness of both materials and introduced a custom carbon fiber TV and table base/support system for the kitchen. How, you ask? Choate is now developing a patent-pending ADDON technique that involves using one layer of carbon fiber sheet over wood to give the pedestal a clean carbon fiber look.
This new technique is applicable only to flat wood surfaces and not elsewhere. It’s also very easy to paint on, so it doesn’t cut deep into your pockets and makes a good substitute for the relatively expensive full carbon fiber furniture. Choate charges about $500 for the carbon fiber piece (excluding the glass table, TV, or chairs).
