We don’t know how well industrial décor will fit in with the rest of your home. If your digs can play nice with a piece that looks like it just got transferred from the floor of a factory warehouse, though, this Hure Crank Table can certainly make its home in your dining room.
Made by Vintage Industrial, it’s a dining table that can be raised to countertop height (from 30 inches to 42 inches) by simply turning either of the cranks at both ends, allowing you to quickly convert the dining room into a bar during gatherings and parties. Plus, this should make for a nice standing desk, in case you don’t have a home office and do all your work at home on the same table where you sit down for dinner.
While it’s certainly not the only crank table out there (they’ve had a bit of a resurgence of late), the Hure Crank Table sets itself apart with its beautiful industrial-style base, which combines elegant design with functional mechanisms. They offer 10 different base designs, all drawing inspiration from the work of P. Hure, after whom the table was named, who made lathes and milling machines in Paris from the late 1800s up to the 1940s. The base can be outfitted in a variety of finishes and metal accents, while the top can be ordered in different sizes and materials (steel, wood, concrete, glass, and stone are all available). In standard table sizes, they use four 3-ton crank mechanisms to perform the height adjustment.
Since it looks like a factory machine, might as well price it like one, right? Bank account damage for the Hure Crank Table starts at $13,395.
