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.

Designer: Luciano Lorenzatti and Alan Wisniewski
Dimensions: 46 3/4″ x 14″ x 24″

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.

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.

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.
