These tables by Alma Allen made of salvaged wood are amazing. She’s done work for the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, including pieces in the lobby and in the rooms. Her work is available for purchase in custom sizes and colors. See Allen Pearce for more information.

If your kitchen table doubles as a workspace (breadcrumbs in your laptop and wine stains on your papers) take note of this flexible table. All your work junk can be stored inside, ready to be squirreled away simply by closing the tops and drawers, and voilà, you have a clean tabletop ready for dinner.
Note: No Problem is a Danish Collective, so I’m assuming that shipping might be an issue for folks in the US. You might want to shoot them a shipping inquiry before getting your hopes set.
Update: Monica from Bolia.com emailed in to say they are selling the table, and they can deliver it to any shipping company in Denmark. Thanks Monica.
Purchase Information:Price: $650.00

While I organize my thoughts from 100% Design and Tent London, I’ll leave you to admire Tom Cecil’s Rotating Squares table. It’s more than impressive in person and I took a short video (on my phone, so don’t have high expectations) to show it in action. Orders are taken on commission and start at £2000.00.

You’ve seen the original “blow up” series in stainless steel (2003), but take a look at the newer bamboo version. The natural bamboo sticks are hand tied using raffia soaked in glue, which results in a strong yet lightweight framework. It’s nice to see a warmer alternative to the original steel.

Okay, so we usually try to avoid featuring things from IKEA, because you most likely already know what they have and it’s a no-brainer if you’re on a very tight budget. But this little desk seems like the perfect sort of thing for a cramped workspace, and with the inside lined in felt with pockets and paper holders, plus a cable management compartment, it’s suddenly sprung from so-so to a wow-that’s-a-big-bang-for-your-buck sort of item. Keep in mind you’d still have to buy the legs, but that’s not a lot to add on price wise.

This engineered wood top desk has a pretty good sized work surface at 5′ wide. For those of you that like to spread out all your papers and such, that’s no small matter, and the $280 price tag means you can splurge on storage options. The steel sheet legs “fold” at a right angle.
White powdercoated steel legs.

Not a bad price for a coffee table, seeing as it’s comfortably under the $500 mark. The angled legs makes for an interesting detail, yet it’s robust and sturdy looking, as it should be since the legs are cut from solid American walnut (or oak). A veneered hardwood top finishes it off with a nice ‘organic geometry’.
American Walnut ($379) or American Oak ($349).
Also available in a round-topped version for $499.
35.5 x 35.5 x 17 (W x D x H”)

Nice legs, right? Not only are they shapely, but they also fold down to make for easy storage. A very thin (15mm) honeycomb aluminum top makes for an extra light weight surface.
