Tables

Risom Desk

Just a reminder that some of the spring sales are ending tomorrow. And, if you have some money to spend, you can save some money by spending a little time perusing the items on sale… such as the petite Risom Desk, originally designed in 1968 by Jens Risom for his home in New Canaan, Connecticut. Meant more for use as a writing surface than a computer station, it suits a simpler lifestyle with just one drawer with a removable walnut tray for desk supplies. Perhaps the pared down storage will encourage you to tailor your office supplies down to only the most necessary?

Plus Side Table

If you still find yourself (or your guests) placing their drinks on the floor, guess what? You need a couple more side tables. A seating area with no place to rest a cold glass or hot cup of tea is slightly awkward, and, before you comment, no, a koozie is not an acceptable solution. This Plus Side Table from CB2 is hand-carved from a solid stump of sustainable acacia wood, so it’s substantial and eco-friendly. Get a couple of side tables and THROW AWAY anything resembling a drink sleeve. That’s an order.

The Ledge

Sure, this looks like a wall shelf at first glance, but it hides a small work surface inside. Urbancase’s The Ledge has a pullout shelf/work surface that’s pretty perfect for a laptop, plus a cord management system and drawer, all within a relatively small footprint. Plus, the ‘no legs’ bit will keep a space from feeling too cramped.

Sphere Table

Hmm… the idea behind this Sphere Table is to be commended, but I believe we’ll all have differing opinions as to the choice of materials. Now, considering this table was created by Hella Jongerius as a special furniture piece for North Delegates Lounge at the United Nations headquarters in New York, it’s understandable that it has a commercial feel that some may not like for their own home’s interior. The opalescent acrylic glass that forms the ‘bubble’ would definitely be more at home in a futuristic setting than in a more worn-in, vintage room, yet we all know that having a private and sheltered space when working is valuable, and certain things that allow us such space are worth getting used to.

Crosscut Trestle Legs

Don’t get too excited; that price you see to the right is for the trestle legs only, not the whole dining table. But, hey, maybe you’re excited about that price for just the trestle legs, as that means you can add whatever top you wish and have a great, portable option for a worktop or for feeding your face. Two pieces of laser-cut steel and six oak legs make up the Crosscut Trestle Legs set, and, as you can see from the product photo, the cylindrical legs fit neatly into the steel.

Swish Console Desk

Console or desk, does it matter? What matters is that this Swish Console Desk from Blu Dot has a clever sliding top that conceals a drawer or work top, depending on your preference. There’s a cord management slot, so you can fit your laptop/tablet in there with no problem, and cover it all up if it gets too messy. Excellent idea, isn’t it?

Together Table, Extending

Remember the promise to feature a few more dining tables? Here’s one that doesn’t hide its extension feature. When the drop leaves are locked underneath, the table is rectangular, however, unlock the rounded ends and the table extends to fit more visitors for a larger meal. Plus, it’s from StudioIlse (Ilse Crawford, patron saint of perfect interiors), so you’re safe no matter which size you choose.

This is so smart I can hardly stand it. The Floyd Leg combines a table leg with a clamp- add four legs to any flat surface and you’ve got a table. Simple concept, yes, but a fine execution. There’s only 9 days to go before the campaign closes- take a look if you’re interested: The Floyd Leg on Kickstarter.

Lineage Dining Table

A recent search for a new dining table for my own home revealed a lack of current options here on BLTD, so, in order to fix that, you’ll be seeing a few more tables featured here in the very near future.

Designed by Italian design team IVdesign.it (and available from CB2), the Lineage Table is composed of sustainable acacia wood cut in a dramatic oval with angled antiqued iron legs for a sculptural metal base.

Tor Side Table

A handle on a side table just makes sense. After all, you have favorite spots around the house where you could use an extra surface to set a hot cup, or one of your various gadgets, and you don’t necessarily want dozens of tables cluttering up your minimal vibe, right? The Tor Side Table has a raised edge to prevent items sliding off easily and is made of powder coated aluminum with six different colors available.

If your favorite working spot is anywhere other than a desk, you might just appreciate this mobile desk called Slate.
