Tables

Offi Trundle Desk

Extra space is always at a premium, and if you work like I do, spreading out papers and such is a necessary evil to get a job done. This desk seems to tackle that problem with ease, with an extra drawer-like surface to give you the space you need. Plus, the idea of not necessarily having to straighten up (instead just push in the drawer) is a nice thought.

Hidden cord management storage.

Surface Table

This is one super-incredibly-thin table. It costs fifty thousand freaking dollars. Just thought I’d hit you over the head with that right up front. Lose one of those little zeroes to the left of the decimal point, and suddenly it’s much more reasonable. I don’t mean to be such a critic (I know some people spend that much or more on a car) but I still have trouble absorbing that extra zero. That said, I appreciate the technology behind such an endeavor. It’s definitely a looker.

By using state-of-the-art autosport and aerospace technology, and exploiting the inherent rigidity of layered carbon fiber, Woodgate and Barnard have created an astonishing table that spans nearly 8 feet and has a thickness of less than 1/10 of an inch. Also available in a limited run of 99 with a length of nearly 10 feet.

Designer: Terence Woodgate and John Barnard
Materials: Unidirectional carbon fiber, lacquer or wood veneer, steel legs
Dimensions: L 94.5″ x D 39.4″ x H 29.5″

Danish Dining Table

Usually dining tables are expensive–there’s a reason for this. Usually they’re made of solid wood to deal with wet objects such as spills and drink condensation. This little table isn’t too expensive, but the table top is a veneer which may not hold up over time. However, if you don’t exactly have the cash to drop on a more expensive model, this one may just do the trick and you could always have it re-veneered if necessary or even replace the whole table top with a solid wood top.

67.5 x 31.5 x 29.5 (W x D x H”)

Note: We’ve posted this table before (see Fresno Table, $1299.00) but this one is less expensive.

Pointer Side Table

Partly why this table is inexpensive is that it’s painted wood veneer, and if you’ve ever had anything of the same, you know there’s a good chance of the paint finish chipping or dinging the minute you pick it up. But, that said, if you’re not needing something super durable (i.e. kid proof) you might consider snapping up one or two for side tables. Plus, who knows, maybe this table will exceed expectations.

Made of matte painted wood veneer
Available in black, orange or white.

Strut 70″ Work Table

Here’s a sort-of-affordable glass table with an interesting wood base. ‘Sort-of-affordable’ in this case means there’s no comma in the price tag.

Glass top floats on dramatically angled shesham wood legs with a matte walnut stain. Crossbar support connects the base with striking stainless steel hardware that’s an integral part of the design.

Seats four if using as a dining table.

Matryoshka End Table by Rich Brilliant and Willing

Rich Brilliant and Willing is one of my new favorite design houses and the trio are definitely ones to watch. Their new Matryoshka table featureswood slats with each seam being overlapped by the one next to it.

The table gets its name because each of the three sizes (End, Cocktail & Coffee) – can nest inside one another, like Matryoshka Dolls.

Available in white, black, red or green.

Momantai Etched Stainless Steel Top Tables

Second hand tables get a new lease of life with etched stainless steel tops. It’s a stellar idea, and I sort of love the traditional lace-work design paired with steel. As each piece is unique, prices depend on size and condition; emailing Momantai Design directly will give you a better estimate. If you’re not all that into second hand furniture, maybe you’ll prefer the Praios table (shown bottom) with its brand spanking new thin metal frame.

Classic lace-work translated by means of modern production technology; by etching the pattern in stainless steel, the authentic lace of Plauener Spitze gets a new graphic interpretation. A collaboration of Roel van Hove of Etsprit and Ulrike Jurklies of Momantai Design

Recycled Tables Rondra, Firun, Rahja, Phex (top): between 100 and 600
Table Praios, 190 x 80 cm (bottom): 3521 for the the brushed finish, and 4110 for the polished surface.

Delivery should take roughly 8 weeks depending on the destination.

Also, keep in mind shipping costs (from The Netherlands) might bump the price up quite a bit, so bear that in mind.

Cornered Coffee Table by Dylan Gold

What do you think of this? Sort of like the Twisted Console posted before, this piece by Dylan Gold has a little bit of wonkiness to make for an interesting piece of furniture.

Take your average coffee table, construct one leg as a cross-section of a rotated cube and you get a table that values a clean surface area without losing a place to hold your favorite books and magazines. The Cornered coffee table embodies the inherent function of all coffee tables.
