Tables

Blox Mango Table

This table has the nice detail of asymmetric legs to set it apart from other clean lined dining options. Plantation grown solid mango wood makes for a warm wood grain, and the price of $499 means there’s some room in your budget for chairs too.

Seats six.
63″Wx36″Dx29.5″H

Leaning Man Console

I’d like to say this console would be easy to build, but I think that’s being more than a little optimistic. The leaning design cuts down on visual clutter, seeing as there are two legs instead of the usual four, which would help a small space appear to be just a little larger. There’s also a Leaning Man Side Table (£175.00) if you need a smaller sized occasional table. Designed by Frank Flavell for &then design.

Loop Stand Frames

Sure, the Loop Stand Table ($1,265.00) is an excellent choice for a dining or work table. However, if you’re on a tight budget, you might think about purchasing the Loop Stand Frames (2 pcs, $289.00) instead and then figure out an alternative top for yourself. (Personally, I’ve stained and sealed a plywood top for my own dining table for around $100 and been quite pleased with the results.)

Saarinen Tables

“I wanted to clear up the slum of legs.” So said Eero Saarinen, designer of the well known pedestal (aka Tulip) collection, which includes a dining, coffee and side table.
Winner of the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award, Saarinen’s collection is one of many iconic designs from the mid century.

Frame Coffee Table

More Iacoli & McAllister, except this time it’s not lighting. The Frame Coffee Table is available in a black or white powder coated base with a natural, white wash, or black wash top, and there’s also the Frame Side Table if you’re looking for a smaller occasional size.

Trestle Desk

The budget-conscious among you might just appreciate the $399 price tag attached to this trestle desk. It looks pretty decent (considering), with hardwood legs and ash veneer over a MDF core (you can’t ask for fancier stuff than that without paying more).

Balls Table from Moooi

Balls. This is nothing new (2005), but I just noticed the other day that it folds flat for storage. So, in theory, it’s a luxury version of those horrible looking folding tables that have pinched all of our hands at one time or another and driven us nuts with their distinctive ugly appearance. (This looks so much better, of course, and costs quite a bit more, hence the term ‘luxury’ thrown in the previous sentence.)

Cant Desk by Blu Dot

I don’t know how we missed posting this when it first came out. It’s the perfect desk for a small workspace (42w x 34h x 25d) so you can fit it into a tight corner space with no worries. The walnut veneer is a nice contrast to the grey or red steel as well.

Compass Trestle Legs

The best part about investing in a pair of trestle legs is that you can change out the top at any time, lending a new look to your home or office instantly. Go from glass to natural wood to a bright colored panel… lots of possibilities. These particular trestle legs are quite a bit pricier than the simple steel ones you can get from a hardware store (see Crawford or Fulton Sawhorse), but they are, of course, made of solid beechwood and have a little more elegance/refinement.

Adjustable height.

Treasury Table

If you’re after functionality and storage, this may just be your table, because literally every inch of this table is a sliding drawer. Smaller drawers hold stationary and office supplies, while the larger ones are designed around standard paper sizes from A5 up to A2. My favorite detail is the frosted glass top, which is translucent enough to see the contents inside, yet is opaque enough to quickly hide things from view and adds an overall “soft” effect to the table. Each table is made to order and available in any RAL or NCS color.

Walker vs. Strut

Update: Ah-ha! Blu Dot made this table for Crate&Barrel, hence the striking resemblance. See John’s comment below.

We’re all familiar with the occasional copy cat, and it’s hard to complain when the copier comes up with something so similar at a lesser price point. Sure, there’s the intellectual property argument, but as long as the item is different enough, there’s no real harm done, right? (Right?)

3styletable

Maybe this table won’t win first place in a beauty contest, but it sure will beat the pants off others in a triathlon. It can convert from dining table to coffee table to desk, without tools or finicky extra hardware. And it packs flat for easy storage and transport. See what I mean? It’s multifunctional, and in any tiny apartment space that wins hands down.
