Coffee Tables

Dot Coffee and Side Table

These round Dot Tables are quite the buy at $150 and $400 respectively. It’s a lot of that clean-lined look for a rather reasonable price tag (in my opinion).

Durable wood construction, Oak veneer with barley finish.

Dot Side Table (14″diam x 18″h): $149.00
Dot Coffee Table (36″diam x 14″h): $399.00

Offi Big Rib Coffee Table

A coffee table inspired by pork ribs sounds frankly more than a little unappetizing, however once you get past the food connotation, the modular form makes sense. Easy to assemble, the ribs allow the table to grow to whatever size you need, enabling a custom fit at a fraction of a custom price. With the purchase of an add-on kit (soon to be available) the table can grown three ribs at a time.

Designed by Eric Pfeiffer.
37″ L x 30″ W x 16″ H

Cornered Coffee Table by Dylan Gold

What do you think of this? Sort of like the Twisted Console posted before, this piece by Dylan Gold has a little bit of wonkiness to make for an interesting piece of furniture.

Take your average coffee table, construct one leg as a cross-section of a rotated cube and you get a table that values a clean surface area without losing a place to hold your favorite books and magazines. The Cornered coffee table embodies the inherent function of all coffee tables.

Recycled MDF
Available in Maple, Walnut, Oak and Cherry
Dimensions: 42″w x 36″d x 14″h

Cubo Coffee Table

Hidden storage space in a coffee table is absolutely perfect for those eyesores (otherwise known as remotes) lying around the living room.

Elegant and asymmetrical, the Cubo Coffee Table offers not only a large surface space, but also neatly concealed storage. The Table’s rich, warm American butternut veneer is expertly applied and has a visible grain pattern. The storage space is accessed by rotating the larger “leg” outward, revealing a spacious spot to stash magazines, books or remotes. Storage space is lined in red Spinneybeck® Recycled leather, offering a compelling material contrast to the neutral tones of the wood. Made in U.S.A.

Pirwi Arbol Tables

So, straight off, take note that the prices are separate for the base and glass tops, because you can most likely source a glass or wood top for less than the retailer’s quote (which they actually recommend considering shipment costs). That said, these are exceptionally affordable for the design quality and would most likely be an extremely smart purchase for your home.

The coffee tables are assembled from eight identical pieces and feature a system of central joining that imitates the trunks and branches of trees, where the strength of the whole comes from distributing the work amongst all the limbs. These pieces can be used with either a circular glass top, or a birch plywood surface. The Árbol collection won second place at the National Design Biennial 2007, Mexico City.

Designer: Emiliano Godoy, 2007

The Splice Coffee Table by Umbra U+ Collection

It could be argued that splayed legs of this ‘broken’ coffee table might cause some bruised or broken toes, but perhaps the novelty and magazine storage overshadow that particular concern.

The splice coffee table’s “broken” appearance has a functional aspect – its V-shaped base is perfect for storing magazines. Featuring a 12mm tempered glass top tinted smoke gray. Base created from solid Canadian maple with a satin charcoal finish, by traditional woodworkers in St. Jacob’s, Ontario.

Designer: Luciano Lorenzatti and Alan Wisniewski

Re-vive Table Legs

Hmm. Four steel clamps (‘revived’ production equipment) are improvised legs for whatever surface you might find. They can be attached and removed easily and have an adjustable height of 15.75″ to 19″. While this allows for a fair amount of creativity, the material requires a certain appreciation of industrial elements. Not everyone wants steel clamps as table legs, but for the select few of you that do, I’m sure you’ll have fun deciding what your table top will be.

materials: 100% steel, powder coating, toughened plastic
dimensions: legs adjustable to a height of 15.75″ – 19″ (I’d say this is more of a coffee/cocktail table height, fyi.)

Stash Coffee Table

Hmm, this looks like a very decent coffee table in both price and look.

Novel lounge table’s got raw edge in handmade steel with hand-rubbed variegated zinc finish. Raised rim makes sure Clue pieces, pens, remote stay there. Legs unscrew and fold to stash away. Handmade nature means each table will have slight size variations.

Pine Folding Table

That’s right, $64 for a pine coffee table that has collapsible legs. My love for MUJI is bottomless.

The name “MUJI” is derived from the Japanese phrase “Mujirushi Ryohin,” meaning “No Brand Goods.” Over the last 20 years, they have developed a worldwide following with a guiding philosophy that emphasizes innovative and simple materials, processes, and packaging. The resulting products are streamlined, environmentally friendly, and beautiful in their simplicity. Made of pine with collapsible legs, this low coffee table is suitable for any décor.

Midway Coffee Table

I finally saw this in person whilst making the rounds in NYC this weekend for ICFF (picture montage to follow shortly), and I do have to say I was impressed with how sleek and simple this table was up close. I give it two thumbs up.

Giulie Collection

So, apparently harvesting Sugi trees in Japan is good for the environment (because they are becoming too plentiful) but not many designers will work with the wood because it’s overly soft and gnarly. So, Mr. Enzo Mari stepped up to the plate and designed the very nice (and expensive) Giulie collection to help with the problem. To read more, here’s an article from MetropolisMag.com entitled ‘No Love For Sugi’.

Hida Sangyo was founded in 1920 and is one of the leading wooden furniture makers of Japan, based in the Takayama region. This part of Japan is known for its excellent wood craftsmanship, originating back to the 7th Century Nara period. This collection is made predominately of the beautiful Japanese sugi wood, realized with state-of-the-art industrial technology of wood compression.

Designed by Enzo Mari.
