Kirei Mod Coffee Table

Look at this- an environmentally friendly coffee table that looks like it shouldn’t be (and, by that, I just mean that it’s suprising that it is)…I really like the stark contrast between the matte white and natural fibers. Well done!

“A graphic coffee table featuring Kirei board, an environmentally friendly material made from the reclaimed stalks of the sorghum plant. Normally an agricultural waste product, the discarded stalks are bonded into a sheet glued with formaldehyde-free adhesives. The result is a beautiful textured material that looks like plant cells. We’ve clad the Kirei in matte white acrylic with areas cut away to form a strong graphic motif.”

Material: Kirei & Acrylic.

33w x 33d x 10h (inches)

tray-top coffee table

The tray lifts off and the base is made of polished Nickel. I’m trying to think of why one would need a lift off tray table. Since the top is 36″ x 36″, I think that’s too big to serve any purpose other than cleaning out the tray. Well, it’s a nice table, anyway.

Sande Collection

Okay, what you see here (from left to right) is the Sande Wave Table, the Sande Side Table, and the Sande Mag Bench. Designed and manufactured by David Brunicardi, each piece is made of repeat laminated, eco-friendly plywood from Ecuador. They’re all quite nice- also keep in mind they are hand made, so that’s why there are some zeros on the price tag.

Sande Wave Table $2,200.00
46 L x20 W x15 H

Sande Mag Bench $1750.00
39 L x18 W x13.50 H

Sande Side Table $700.00

Romance Collection by Contraforma

I saw these on design*sponge a while back and hesitated posting them because the shop’s overseas and I thought that wouldn’t be too convenient…BUT I kept thinking about them and suddenly realized that I might just have to post them anyways, regardless of the shipping costs/time.

It’s laser-cut, powder-coated steel with an oh-so-ever romantic preforated floral design…I especially love the contrasting color inside. And, it’s suitable for both indoor or outdoor use. Available in white with pink interior, graphite black with pink interior, or graphite black with white interior (on some of the pieces, but not all). Delivery outside Lithuania usually takes up to 4 weeks; Ona (that’s the store) ships everywhere. I guess I should mention there are other dimensions/designs-I encourage you to investigate further if you’re interested.

Lui coctail table

The Lui table is constructed with traditional Chinese woodworking techniques without nails or screws. For those of you who don’t know, this means that the table will withstand imperceptible fluctuations in temperature and humidity because all the joints will expand and contract together. (As opposed to joinery using nails and screws, in which the wood expands and contracts and the metal remains constant, causing the joints to become compromised.)

Slim Table

There’s more than meets the eyes regarding this table. The top slides apart in the middle to reveal a storage space almost two feet across for all those cluttery type items like remotes, magazines and coasters. Engineered wood tabletop with ivory oil paint finish and powder-coated steel legs.

Jacobs Table

This coffee table is made of Perspex. (The trade name for a clear, lightweight, tough plastic first produced in 1930. It is widely used for watch glasses, advertising signs, domestic baths, motorboat windscreens, aircraft canopies, and protective shields. Its chemical name is polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). Duh.)

It would light up your livingroom quite nicely…

Peekabo Coffee Table

Do you need a coffee table? For under $300? Impossible, some might say. But not I. For this thick-cut (5″) acrylic molded table is not only a decent design, but it runs clean under that $300 mark.
