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.”

Cherry OR Butternut and African wenge wood.

Pool Table Collection by Niels Bendtsen

Thick glass with silk-screened color give these tables a polished sheen that’s bound to take any room up a notch or two.

“Niels Bendtsen’s Pool Table Collection (2004) is a juxtaposition of undisturbed flat water (like a table) and man-made squares and rectangles (like a pool)… Pool’s tempered glass top and sides are permanently fused at mitered corners using a UV gluing process that offers rigid strength and a clean connection…A variety of sizes offer several nesting possibilities, easily arranged to fit individual needs.”

City Slicker Table

I like these little tables because they’re almost like the stark white displays in museums or art galleries. Here, it’s less about the table and more about what you’re putting on it.

Stands 14 inches high.

Baghdad Table

Man, I wouldn’t call these affordable by any means, but they sure are worth taking a look at…

“The capital Baghdad, the new Babylon, a symbol of multiple, ethnic, cultural and religious identities, a sort of concentration of all humanity. The top of the New Baghdad table is made up of tens of different industrial aluminium profiles each one with a specific purpose, which together make up a map of the capital of Iraq, ploughed by river Tigris. The designer Ezri Tarazi’s idea behind the table is that each shape’s various identities are merged into a cohesive plan.”

Available in Small and Large (dining or coffee table height).

Girard Table

I love the spare and simple lines of this coffee table- it’s definitely mid century, though not in any overt way. The subtle design gives it the elegance to qualify as a classic.

“The art of this coffee table is its book-matched walnut veneer tabletop, organic shape and smooth 45-degree beveled edge…the table can be positioned with either the straight or asymmetrical side toward the seating area, providing a large surface area in a relatively narrow footprint.”

Baltic birch core; plain-slice book-matched walnut veneer; cold-rolled steel tube legs; black powder coat.

I don’t know why I’m surprised that this coffee table is kind of affordable- I guess it just looks like it should cost more. Seems like a deal.

Osorom Bench/Table

This would require a bit more money out of the bank than most other coffee tables, but it’s amazing, so it makes sense that it has a higher price point.

“This incredible design from Grcic features a lozenge-shaped object in white Hirek technopolymer; the cut outs create a magnificent spatial dimension and lightness with the piece. Perfect as a bench or a large surface like a coffee table – and, it can be used outdoors!”
