Coffee Tables

Periodic Table

I saw this while we were at
ICFF a couple of weeks ago, and while it was (and is) spectacular, I had no idea it was coated with natural silver, which makes it extremely unattainable to the average consumer. I really do think it’s amazing, but, come on, if you’re spending that kind of money on a coffee table you might need to visit some third world countries to get some perspective.

“Superficial or authentic? This striking piece puts equal emphasis on surface and substance. Using a proprietary process, a massive block of wood is coated with a brilliant layer of natural silver, and a bloom of tarnish around the knots and cracks, resulting in a piece whose stunning surface does nothing to hide the individuality and character of the wood beneath.”

Angelini Coffee Table

At first glance, the top of this table looks to be steel, but instead it’s made from a nice dark gray oak veneer. Also, I like the legs jut out ever so slightly, and how the corners are rounded instead of squared off in sharp angles; both lend a little more personality than it would have had otherwise.

“The contemporary look of the Angelini coffee table infuses a cool and edgy ambiance in any modern setting. This stylish table is made with a brushed stainless steel frame, and a dark gray oak veneer.”

Bench With Moveable Tray

This looks like a good choice if you need bench with storage options for miscellany.

“This exceptionally comfortable bench is perfect in an entryway, living room, or bedroom. But what makes it really special is that this bench is also a coffee table, a storage unit, and a shelf! Solid pine frame houses three drawers to conveniently store anything from gloves and scarves to DVDs, plus a roomy and decorative shelf to store smaller items within easy reach. Moveable bent tray slides horizontally or can be removed completely.”

Bello Albero Coffee Table

Sizing in at 5′ long, this coffee table would do a great job of filling up a room (if you’re lucky enough to need that sort of thing).

Set of 10 Low Trunk Tables

Yes, the price does seem more on the high side of what seems reasonable for a few side tables, but considering there are 10 of them, each one sporting different shades of neutral enamel tops, it doesn’t seem as bad..maybe because each one (if sold separately) would be $175.

“Driftwood spread across the shore is the impetus behind this unique design. The ultimate in modern nature, these low tables are fully functional, as they are fastened with metal and enamel tops. An inspired way to redefine and re-use earth’s creations. Natural.”

From 7 3/4″ to 15 3/4″.

Surfboard Cocktail Table

While I’m not quite sure what this table is made of, it does have the interesting (rough?) three-legged base that contrasts nicely with the rounded/oblong glass top.

MIMOSA Coffee Table

This small-scaled coffee table has a friendly price tag; it has the interesting angled leg feature which would look good with or without books/magazines.

“A dark wood coffee table can sometimes seem heavy and overbearing, but this honey-toned acacia wood table retains a sense of airiness due to the open and angular design that rests lightly on the floor with just two contact points. The interior of the coffee table provides ample storage for oversize magazines and art books.”

Corrales Cocktail Table

This plank wood coffee/cocktail table catches the eye not only for the type of wood used, but also that it only has three legs. It seems to have the same sort of shape of the Girard Table, but in a less refined and rugged sort of way.

” Absolutely natural cocktail table in solid Margosa. Each table is made from an individual plank of wood and is completely unique.

The wood is dried for several months and allowed to develop natural cracks and separations. After being shaped, it is finished with a natural wax for protection.”

This has got to be one of the most bizarre pieces of furniture I’ve seen.

Traby Coffee Table

I was at my friend’s great loft last weekend, and right in front of his >$18,000 sofa is this little blocky table. Certain that it too came with a large price tag, I was quite surprised to find out it was a $100 solid* wood table from Ikea. The photo doesn’t really do it justice. This little guy can hold his own in sophisticated settings. Trust me on this one.

The lower tray is completely removable.

edit: it’s actually not solid wood. But it certainly feels like it.

CW Bench

Why are big chunks of wood so appealing? I love the integrated black legs on this particular bench- they seem to frame the grain nicely and give an elegant yet natural appearance.

“Not every table has four legs. Aesthetically smart, this simple and
minimal design enables for its various applications throughout the home
or work environment. Cleanly constructed of a solid piece of Cherry,
its geometric and graceful design accentuates the natural beauty of the
grains and knots of the pine. The handsome wood top of the piece allows
for use as a reversible table or bench. Fusing sophistication with
functionality, the African wenge wood legs provide an exceptionally
strong support and stability. This item is made to order with a lead
time of 6-8 weeks.”
