The Mercury Drop Dining Table is a copyrighted design made by Sara Hayat for Sara Hayat Design. It is aesthetically unique. The table legs are inverted U with wooden spheres suspended in the middle. The table top is made from solid mahogany wood with tapered edges. The tapered edges are also accentuated with warm brass lining. The sleek and minimalistic table top highlights and puts all the focus on the unique and elegant table legs.

The inspiration for the spheres came for this came from finding piece of ball bearings while putting my 8 year old sons scooter together. It also came from looking at old thermometers and seeing the mercury suspended in the glass tube. I thought long and hard about how I can incorporate these details in furniture. I was designing a dining table at the time and it became apparent that they would make the perfect table legs. That became the focus and the table top just added to the overall design.

The size of the table is as follows;

L72" x D14" x H32"
