Tables

Hathaway Desk

So, this looks pretty simple from the front, but what makes it stand out is the handy storage space in the back for power strips or cable management. Power strips aren’t the nicest things to look at, and a desk that has a specific space to hide that and computer cords deserve a mention. I suppose you could float it in a room as well (as shown by the happy guy in sneakers below), though take note of the perforated panel detail.

Metal Truss Work Table

This work table caught my eye the last time I visited West Elm (had to check out the Glass Greenhouse in person), and despite its rather small footprint, it’s a great price. While the size is a tad small for my own personal workspace, it would do well in a tight spot or as an entryway console.

Solid mango wood top with weathered finish; iron legs.
54″w x 28.5″d x 29.5″h.

Stash Stacking Drawers

These stacking drawers are somewhere in between the dresser category and a side table with storage. While the mix-and-match look might not fit everyone’s taste, I can see how the versatility of this would be handy to have if you prefer to change things around often.

Beam Table/Stool

If you need some character in a room- as in a big chunky side table or stool- here it is. HollerDesign brings us the Beam table and/or stool; it pretty much nails the rustic modern look with its interesting joint (see pic below) and hand charred finish.

Grove Office Center

This piece would be perfect for tucking away a home office. The size is big enough to hold a computer, accessories and files, yet it’s not too large… as in, it’s not a wooden behemoth crouched in the corner of your living room. There’s the mid century feel that most of us are fond of, and it’s handcrafted (domestically) of solid cherry wood, which means it’ll last long enough to pass down to your children/relatives.

Caliper Coffee Table

Here’s a coffee table that puts an end to clutter: two hidden drawers reveal storage at each end, making a secret spot to stash away tv remotes, games, and reading materials. Not a bad price either. (There’s some assembly required, but I’m guessing it’s just attaching the legs.)

Mesh Series Tables and Lamps by Horgan Becket

I just came across this fantastic looking series tables and lamps at Design Milk. The Mesh Series by Horgan Becket is a collection of tables and lamps inspired by steel wire forms commonly seen in fencing and other industrial applications. While the industrial look is certainly in these days, it takes a special touch and consideration not just go with, “add steel here, big welds over there, finish with worn reclaimed wood”, and actually design something unique without straying too far from the original aesthetic. I feel this series of furniture pieces, particularly the tables, do just that. The Mesh series is handcrafted and made to order by Horgan Becket in Brooklyn, NY. Contact them for further details and pricing.

Animate Writing Desk

Hold onto your pants, dear, because this beauty is not stateside. I know, it’s so frustrating when not all beautiful things are available to us right away and without shipping fees, but, such is the nature of our world. So, if you live in a European country or if you have loads of cash, consider this writing desk by Young & Norgate. The sleek silhouette has its drawer mechanics exposed, making a feature out of the function. Sized for your correspondence needs (laptop or pen and paper), there’s adequate surface and storage space, with an optional cable well hidden into the back. Having a desk like this would make answering emails less of a chore and more of a pleasure, I’d think.

Slope Desk by Jenk Design Office

I’m really digging this new Slope Desk by British via Norway designer Thomas Jenkins.

It gestures at traditional sloped drafting tables with a downward angled surface and adds two hinged doors revealing felt-lined compartments for storage and organization. Two included wedges create a level surface for holding pens and your favorite drink. Solid maple legs support a desk surface constructed from a mix of birch veneer MDF and plywood.

Stanley Console Table

Over the past few years, I’ve read (and responded) to quite a few emails asking about the Hola Y Adios Entry Table and where it might be found. Sadly, it seems to remain unavailable despite its apparent popularity. However, there is hope: look at this little new console table from Gus*. It measures 36″w x 32″h x 10″d, which is the exact same depth as the Hola Y Adios, and is a tad less wide (-4″) and tall (-3″). Plus, it’s got a rectangular recess to keep important things in place (like keys, phones, mail, etc.).

Primary Desk by Nathan Yong

This desk is an odd sort of fellow with its angles and points and slim drawers. Inspired by mid-century furniture in the designer’s childhood, the desk looks both classic and futuristic, which by no means is an easy task. Solid walnut makes for a sturdy frame with just enough worktop space for a small computer and writing space, and five drawers are available to squirrel away odds and ends. There’s also another thoughtful detail worth mentioning: the angle of the top drawers allow for the pitch of an open laptop.

Easy Edges Low Table Set

For this Thursday’s design classic we have Frank Gehry’s Easy Edges Low Table Set. You’ll probably recognize these, as Gehry is well known for using cardboard to make several pieces (Wiggle Chair, Wiggle Stool) of the Easy Edges Collection. Of course, most the world recognizes Gehry for his architecture rather than his use of a rather humble material in surprisingly sturdy furniture.
