M’ovo Folding Table by Lapalma

While this does have a certain ironing-board feel to it, the promise of being able to easily shift from table to table-being-vertically-stored has a certain allure. For the price, I’d expect it to move from one position to the other extremely smoothly.

m’ovo table can be transformed by an easy movement: a second leg unfolds while the top is lowered to horizontal position. the solid oval base has concealed wheels so that the table can be shifted easily before use. when the flip-top is down, the wheels are lifted up and the base is stopped.

Isometric Table and Chairs

Austere lines and precise craftsmanship make this dining set a serious consideration if you’re in the market for updating your dining area. Take special note of the Isometric Chair; it’s incredibly lovely.

Designed to accompany the Isometric Chair, the Isometric Table is a study in reduction and opposition. The design explores the intersection of two-dimensional planes flowing together to create a three-dimensional form.

Parquet Dining Table

This is one snazzy table. I love the angular legs and parquet detailing, and, to sweeten the deal, there’s a removable leaf for versatility.

Our Parquet Dining Table is a solid, classic design that demonstrates our commitment to craft. Crisp, angular legs and an impeccably crafted oak tabletop are delightful for entertaining. The center leaf is surprisingly easy to remove for an intimate gathering.

Gus Modern Corner Block Dining Table

I have absolutely no idea why this particular retailer has a price of $870.00 on this table when other places have it at $1,495.00. Is it a mistake? Am I missing something like a defect listed or a floor model sale?

Featuring distinctive L-shaped legs and a warm European oak grain, the Corner Block Dining Table defines sleek design and solid construction. With its generous size and clean lines, it looks great in any contemporary dining space.

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.

Sinus trestle

So if you live inside the EU, these trestles are pretty reasonably priced (not to mention very cool)…but don’t get your heart set on them if you’re in the US, because then shipping makes it twice as expensive.

“The trestle Sinus consists of not more than one piece of steel tube.
Sinus is thereby stackable and with its merely three legs sees to a lot of legroom under the table.”

Sinus is available in the colours: Black, White, Blood Orange and Chrome.
H 72 cm x W 74 cm x D 36 cm
185 € per pair VAT included.
(shipping inside the EU is 29,50€, inside Germany is 9,90€)

Urban Hardwoods

Urban Hardwoods has such a wide variety of beautiful pieces, all handmade from salvaged wood in Seattle. I found them while drooling over a coffee table (lower right), and I’d recommend taking a look through their collection if you’re fond of modern wood pieces.
And, for you lucky San Francisco residents, they’re opening up a new showroom in March.

“Our goal is fairly straightforward — to be the most progressive, responsible and sustainable wood furniture manufacturer/retailer in America…With every piece we craft, we respect the natural character and imperfections of the tree we use. We let the natural shapes, holes, curves and “live edges” of the tree remain. Our craftsmen work to preserve the tree that once was — and the work-of-art that will be.” -Urban Hardwoods

Grand Ecart Table

This pretty crazy price-wise, but the design is worth noting. Now if someone can just figure out how to make it less expensive…

Launched at the 2008 Milan Furniture Fair, this table is designed by award-winning French architect Jean Nouvel. Grand écart means ‘the splits’ in French, and the table’s top comprises two slender sleeves of lacquered aluminum that are undetectable when the table is closed but slide apart to extend the table from 71″ to 118″w to seat up to 14 people. Requires simple assembly. Available in other sizes and in fixed length versions by special order.

Cross Round Table Glass

Today’s the last day of DWR’s Anniversary Sale. If you’ve had your eye on anything, it’s a good time to buy with the free shipping and discounts.

A sculpturally unique and compact dining solution, the Cross Round Table (2007) features an asymmetrical solid oak base that’s constructed of two interlocking pieces. Designed by Matthew Hilton, the Round Table possesses the same modernist balance of form and function as his other pieces like the Profile Chair and Cross Credenza.

The Cross Round Table seats four comfortably.
