Two Tops Secretary by Marcel Wanders for Moooi

You’ve probably seen this before but this is the first time I’ve seen it available online. This is perfect for a dual purpose work space/dining space as it converts easily from a standard dining table to a workspace with a flip top which reveals a laptop surface and a hidden inbox below.

Lance Dining Extension Table

A while ago, we had a reader who was on a desperate search for a table that expanded widthwise instead of lengthwise. It is somewhat of a design anomaly, and in all my searches I didn’t find anything close. But today, I found one. It’s too late for that dear reader, he has succumb to an inferior lenthwise expanding table. But for those of you still looking, don’t despair, your table has arrived.

Wenge-stained oak veneer; satin-finished steel base.

Silverado Rectangular Table

Quite a deal on a table, if you ask me. Since the two bases aren’t attached, there’s versatility in the type of top you choose as well as the amount of leg room you need. You can push them together and have a round glass top for a smaller fit. This also could be a nice desk…

Terrazzo Square Table and Stools

I know it’s not exactly outdoor weather for most people, but who says you can’t get ready early? This set would look equally good inside as well…

“This black terrazzo table is a classic addition to any patio or deck. Measuring 32″ť square, you can easily match it to Napa’s square terrazzo stools (sold separately) or with your choice of teak or metal outdoor chair. Constructed from concrete with terrazzo accents, these innovative items may be left outside in Virginia winters (unlike terracotta, which is guaranteed to crack). Whether you prefer the look outdoors or in, this table is an undeniable classic.”

Table (32w x 32d x 30h), $559.00

Stool (12.5w x 12.5d x 18h), $125.00

Boris Dining Table

Round dining tables are ideal for so many reasons. They keep everyone on the same social playing field by eliminating the head and foot, and conversation is much easier. I particularly loved this table when I saw it, a nicely beveled edge helps define the top from the interesting base.

“The Boris Dining Table is both nostalgic and state-of-the-art. Its sentimental design pays homage to the definitive production standards and style of Charles and Ray Eames. But Boris’s unconventionally shaped legs give it a form that lies in a dimension somewhere between minimalistic and space-age, making it a great addition to any modern dining area, but a true centerpiece in any retro-inspired environment.”

Biwing Table by Reform

It’s easy to become desensitized to prices these days- especially since it seems like everything you want is way more than you can spend. So, that’s when you have to grow up and start saving for the things you really want, which means you’ll appreciate them that much more when the item of desire actually arrives, right? All this jabber is just so I can make a point that sometimes it’s worth the big price tag.

“The Biwing Table is an instant classic with its sleek curves and functional shelves tucked below the surface at both ends. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, the A1 is made from a single sheet of 1/4″ aluminum and created without any hardware or adhesives. The minimalist modern form is materia efficient and 100% recyclable.”

Look at the lines of this piece-quite a nice shape and size for the price. I’d say you’d be getting your money’s worth.

TOPO Table

We featured this table during ICFF a few months ago but I’m reposting because now it’s available online. This may have been one of my favorite new designs at ICFF.

“If you’re tired of perfectly flat tables take a look at the TOPO series. Plastic inserts formed over rocks drop into the table to form functional little landscapes.”

Topo Table

So, all this week you’ll be seeing bits and pieces of things we saw at the ICFF that we thought were worth mentioning, and I think it fitting that this table is among the first of the posts. I do believe it might be my favorite thing, or at least among the top five. Small plastic inserts drop into the table to form little landscapes that are interchangable. Plants are shown, but think of all the other possibilities…

(note: each piece is custom made)

Cross Extension Table

This table seems to fit function and beauty equally within its design.

“With spare clean lines and no decorative excess, Matthew Hilton’s Cross Extension Table pairs the elegance and warmth of classic English furniture with the simple beauty of 21st-century modernism…The table top expands with a simple pull, allowing up to two leaves to be inserted, extending the table’s length from a minimum of 78.75″ to 116″. After the guests depart, the leaves store neatly in a compartment on the table’s underside. And because of the leg’s darting design, as many as 10 can sit comfortably at the Cross Table without discomfort or squeezing.”

Solid oak base; veneered oak top with solid oak supports.

H 29.5″ W 78.75-97.5-116″ D 35.5″

Rolling Bar Cart

This would be perfect for shuttling food and drink between the kitchen and dining room/livingroom and would function as a great little side table when not in use.

“Contemporary service for wining and dining pairs roomy wood-construction trays with a polished-nickel cart. Top tray lifts off. Chocolate (shown) or white trays.”
35″ x 18″ x 32.5″h.
