Matt Gagnon : Paper Table

Yep, it’s a bit more than maybe most of you would like to spend on a coffee table, BUT it’s made out of recycled paper and it’s freaking cool. Save your pennies and it’ll be worth it, trust me.

Snow Table

Nendo: Snow Table
Swedese, Sweden.

“Designed by Nendo in Japan. Have you ever awaked in the morning to a soft blanket of snow covering your yard and smiled? Perhaps it is because there is something about the winter that appeals to the minimalist in all of us. Everything covered in a nice clean white veil, the hard edges of ice on the windows. With the Snow Table, designedy Nendo for Swedese you can bring some of that winter beauty into your home. This modular and expandable table is made by connecting a series of snowflake shaped white plywood sections together, and placing an appropriately sized pane of glass on top. We love the modular aspect of it that makes it possible to expand as necessary, or as desired.”

Material: White lacquered “snow flakes” in MDF. Clear Glass Top. Simple assembly required.

Context Furniture William & Mary Tables

So if you need some surface space on a small budget, I’d recommend taking a look at these tables. I think they’ve got a lot of punch for the price (quite fond of the stylized shaping of the legs with the laminated top).

“Context Furniture’s William & Mary tables add a different kind of contrast, with their ultrasmooth laminate surfaces and aluminum legs. The silhouettes (again, especially in the legs, but also in the shaping of the tabletop edges) still draw on historical designs, but the overall result is distinctly modern.”

Some color options: black knight, invasion red, monarch white, royal blue

Materials: Anodized aluminum legs with 3/4 inch laminated, multi-ply top.

Small Round Table 16.5″H x17″Diam

Round Table 12.50″H x29″Diam (center hole diameter is 8″).

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.

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.

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.

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.
