wrecked ferrari reclaimed for coffee table

“Reclaimed” is one of those buzzwords that’s come along in the last year or two to described mundane things like dead wood that’s been turned into a high priced consumer good. Think of a tabletop made from “reclaimed wood” and sold at a premium in a bougie furniture store and you get the idea.

French artist Charly Molinelli has taken the “reclaimed” idea to a new level with this (admittedly awesome) Ferrari coffee table made from a vehicle so mangled that we have no idea what kind of Ferrari it started life as. The piece was (obviously) comissioned by a wealthy patron of Molinelli’s and is said to have cost well into the 5-figures. Special wood was also procured to “stay with the concept of recycling.” That strikes us as a bit rich when dealing with a piece like this, but we’re not going to lie and say we don’t want one of these for our living room.
