Coffee Tables

The Floyd Leg

This is so smart I can hardly stand it. The Floyd Leg combines a table leg with a clamp- add four legs to any flat surface and you’ve got a table. Simple concept, yes, but a fine execution. There’s only 9 days to go before the campaign closes- take a look if you’re interested: The Floyd Leg on Kickstarter.

Apis vs. Gus Modern Wireframe

Here’s a little wireframe rivalry for you: which do you like better, the top or bottom coffee table? One costs $349 and the other just over $800. You can probably use your head to figure out which one’s which, but here’s the info just in case you lack the brain power:

Index Table

If your coffee table isn’t doing you any favors, maybe this Index Table with its integrated magazine holder will help keep periodicals tidy. A stainless steel frame keeps things slick while the fine leather pouch and wood top warm things up. This is the year you’ll have all that clutter under control, right?

Simple Machines Round Table

Just as they announced in a previous edition of their magazine, Dwell now has an online store. Now I shall go find my wallet, because I need to hide it and then hit myself over the head in hopes of memory loss. This Simple Machines Round Table stood out on first perusal, as the legs appear to screw into the top and has a clean, simple appearance. The companion Square Table, Stool, and Bench are equally compelling.

Turn Tables

Lucky you, these tables (and all other Blu Dot furniture) are 20% off their regular price until November 10th. Maybe you just need one table beside your favorite chair to set your drink upon, or maybe you need a few to scatter around for laptops, lamps and books. As each table is made from solid Acacia wood, they’re hefty and will react to changes in temperature.

Wintercheck 06/08

What happens to orphaned furniture? Often they end up in a very sad place called the landfill, sitting unused and unloved. Wintercheck Factory has saved a few pieces from this slow death, and, with some upgrades and additions, they’re now available online for your purchase (at not bad prices, I might add). Pictured above is the Felt Top Table, $375, who in a previous life sported a linoleum top and was drawerless.

Tablo Tables

These tables have that soft minimal look that’s often hard to find. The rounded wooden legs contrast nicely to the sharp edged plastic top, and you’ll also be happy to hear the legs are easy to assemble for transport or storage. Available in large or small, black or white.

Scamp Tables

Sale alert! The Scamp Coffee and Scamp Side tables from Blu Dot are marked down significantly over at MoMA Store, so if you’re in need of occasional tables, you’re in luck. Inspired by the form of tennis ball hoppers, these tables have powder-coated steel bases and can live indoors or outside.

Echo Coffee and Side Table

You might be a little tired of hearing me talk about the new collection from Debra Folz, but you’re just going to have to deal with it, because these tables are pretty spectacular. The glass portion is made from four different layers, each having one color/layer of the pattern. As the layers overlap, deeper hues appear with a three dimensional effect. Now, the price is a little higher than you might like, but keep in mind those four layers of glass and the wonderful pattern they’ll project onto your floor.

Rouge Coffee Table

It’s just what you need, isn’t it, a pink*, perforated metal table? With all the recent talk of the Met’s PUNK: Chaos to Couture, there’s nothing wrong with straying a little from your regular furnishings and updating a coffee table, especially if that table packs a punch. And what packs a punch like a (let’s say it together) pink, perforated metal table?

Atlas Coffee Table vs. Free Range

And here we have another face-off, and this time it’s in the realm of wood and marble coffee tables. Yes, they’re not exactly the same, but there are the similarities in materials and dimensions, so why not see if you can guess which one has the $1800 price tag and which one has the $600 tag?

Pebble Coffee Table

Well, seeing as this concrete table weighs almost 100 pounds, you’ll not want to move it around much, but it’s a relief to see that it has an affordable price tag of $254. The rounded shape will soften up all those sharp edges of your other furniture, inside or out. And, chances are that this table will require less upkeep than other pieces- though don’t go tempting fate by pouring red wine or other colorful drinks over it. (Also available: Pebble Side Table, $126.)

RAD Tables, Benches, Stools

I still have a deep affection for the Howard Stool, and surprise, surprise, it blinded me to the other perforated steel tables and benches that RAD has to offer. Coffee tables, benches, entry tables, smaller stools and side tables- they have a pretty good array of sizes to suit your needs. A few versions are shown below, and keep in mind there are several different colors to choose from.

Herringbone Coffee Table

Wood (coffee table) + chevron parquet + simple iron base = no brainer. Parquetry seems to have been making a comeback with a few interiors featuring the old school look to its best advantage (a few bookmarked images on tumblr). All good news, of course, but if you can’t actually install those lovely patterned floors in your own space, you can certainly apply the technique to a coffee table top. This particular table is made of sustainable shesham wood and is left unfinished, so do be careful with your colorful beverages.

Tessello Table Legs

Noah Lambert has added a great leg option to the marketplace: the Tessello. Sold as a set of 3 for $90 (or a set of 4 for $120) it’s a pretty affordable option, especially if you already have a table that just needs a makeover in the leg department. Media center, coffee table, nightstand, you name it, the legs are a no-brainer for an easy update, as you’d only need a drill/screwdriver and screws or bolts to attach them to your choice of table top. Each leg is cut from a sheet of .1875″ thick steel and bent with a custom jig to insure uniformity.
