Engineer Dining Table

Whaa? $399, for real? That price more than qualifies this indoor/outdoor sawhorse table as an exceptionally affordable option for your dining needs.

Industrial takes a stand under sleek glass to dine six, indoors and out. Sawhorse supports rivet a third leg each, with almost humorous small feet in stride. Mild steel is hot-dip galvanized to a raw crystalline gunmetal grey that’s rustproof and scratch-resistant. Each piece is unique and will take on a darker look over time. Protective floor pads included.

Nesting Tables/Step Stools by Paul Loebach

Uh, how much do you love these tables by Mr. Loebach? If you didn’t say ‘very much’ or were stricken speechless then I don’t know what to do with you. First off, they are tables and step stools, which makes them functional for small spaces, yada yada yada. Second, they are available in some of the best color choices (charcoal, green, and the most delightful shade of blue (in my opinion)). Third, and perhaps most importantly, each table/stool opens at the top (with safety hinged lids) for extra storage. Fourth, they are a little awkward in just how humble they look, and doesn’t that just make you love them more? All that said, I think it’s the colors that make them stand out as wonderful little nesting tables/step stools. Take note they won’t ship until mid-October.

Material: Wood and MDF with safety hinges

Dimensions: 17.25 x 14 x 18 inches

Mayfair Steamer Secretary Trunk

I post this with considerable trepidation. On one hand, having a huge trunk to stuff all sorts of work papers and items plus a computer would be exceptionally nice in that you could close it all off and see a nice looking old trunk instead of a messy workspace. On the other hand it is absolutely huge and might look like an elephant in the corner, plus some people might assume you have a Real Doll in there, and that would not do your reputation any good whatsoever. So, it’s up to you to decide whether the risk is worth the advantage, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. (Also, if you’re into the antique steamer trunk thing, there’s a sizable collection of them (media stands, dressers, etc.) to check out at Restoration Hardware).

* Crafted by antiques dealer and furniture maker Timothy Oulton of London
* Reproduction antique steamer trunk
* Features a pull-down desktop and multiple drawers, cubbies, wire management and bookshelves
* Stands on wheels for mobility and closes for storage and privacy

Ikea PS Karljohan Side table

Yet another product from the new Ikea PS collection. This little table is one of the highlights in my opinion. For the price, the shape and size are hard to beat, and maybe this won’t make a lot of sense, but somehow it doesn’t seem overly Ikea to me…that might change with time, but I hope not.

Co-op Dining Table

Made from sustainable, plantation grown solid shesham wood, this steel legged table looks like it has the size and price to fit the bill of many a dining room. The wood top adds warmth while the steel legs add a modern-rustic vibe.

The Splice Coffee Table by Umbra U+ Collection

It could be argued that splayed legs of this ‘broken’ coffee table might cause some bruised or broken toes, but perhaps the novelty and magazine storage overshadow that particular concern.

The splice coffee table’s “broken” appearance has a functional aspect – its V-shaped base is perfect for storing magazines. Featuring a 12mm tempered glass top tinted smoke gray. Base created from solid Canadian maple with a satin charcoal finish, by traditional woodworkers in St. Jacob’s, Ontario.

M’ovo Folding Table by Lapalma

While this does have a certain ironing-board feel to it, the promise of being able to easily shift from table to table-being-vertically-stored has a certain allure. For the price, I’d expect it to move from one position to the other extremely smoothly.

m’ovo table can be transformed by an easy movement: a second leg unfolds while the top is lowered to horizontal position. the solid oval base has concealed wheels so that the table can be shifted easily before use. when the flip-top is down, the wheels are lifted up and the base is stopped.

FIberglass Side Table

This is a perfect little side table at a nice little price point.

“Mod-inspired fiberglass side table, constructed in a lightweight hourglass design and polished with clean, smooth edges. Top it with a lamp or plant, keep it plain and simple, or use it as decorative seating! The sturdy flat-top surface is ideal for just about anything! ”

Re-vive Table Legs

Hmm. Four steel clamps (‘revived’ production equipment) are improvised legs for whatever surface you might find. They can be attached and removed easily and have an adjustable height of 15.75″ to 19″. While this allows for a fair amount of creativity, the material requires a certain appreciation of industrial elements. Not everyone wants steel clamps as table legs, but for the select few of you that do, I’m sure you’ll have fun deciding what your table top will be.

materials: 100% steel, powder coating, toughened plastic
dimensions: legs adjustable to a height of 15.75″ – 19″ (I’d say this is more of a coffee/cocktail table height, fyi.)

Rikyu Jubako Table by Conde House

One of my favorite things at ICFF this year was interesting paint treatments to simple wood furniture. It sort of evokes a feeling of Shaker simplicity with modern shapes. As far as I know this particular piece didn’t show at ICFF, but the variegated color scheme reminds me of some of the great pieces I saw earlier this year.

Hans Tables by Jonathan Adler

Whoa, these sure cost a lot more than I was expecting. The perspective is a bit off since I spliced the three together in one image, but you can see how they have a lot of presence, mostly due to the shape and patina, but also because they are solid brass. That means they probably would break your toe if you ran into them rather than toppling over.

Monumental Modernism.
Three striking silhouettes in a blackened finish inspired by the work of Jonathan’s favorite potter, Hans Coper. Made from solid brass with a black patina and hand-rubbed edges.

Stash Coffee Table

Hmm, this looks like a very decent coffee table in both price and look.

Novel lounge table’s got raw edge in handmade steel with hand-rubbed variegated zinc finish. Raised rim makes sure Clue pieces, pens, remote stay there. Legs unscrew and fold to stash away. Handmade nature means each table will have slight size variations.

Isometric Table and Chairs

Austere lines and precise craftsmanship make this dining set a serious consideration if you’re in the market for updating your dining area. Take special note of the Isometric Chair; it’s incredibly lovely.

parallel nesting tables

Nesting tables are the perfect thing when you’re short on space; you can tuck away the smaller table when not in use and then whenever an extra surface is needed it’s right on hand.

Fulton Desk, Bookcase, Media Console

This is bare bones minimal with a tiny bit of rustic wood to warm it up. I’d say the prices are reasonable, or at least they don’t hurt the eyes.

Fulton’s minimal lines and mixed materials make a streamlined, rustic-modern statement. The warmth of the richly-figured, reclaimed teak veneer top contrasts beautifully with the industrial black metal frame, finished in three steps for an oxidized effect.
