Tables

Archimede Laptop Caddy

I could really use one of these. The best thing about a laptop is the portability but just using it in your lap (I’ve found) is not exactly the best thing for your posture. So why not couple your laptop with a portable desk as well? This desk has a gas piston that adjusts the caddy’s height and a mouse tray that positions left or right.

Terrazzo Square Table and Stools

I know it’s not exactly outdoor weather for most people, but who says you can’t get ready early? This set would look equally good inside as well…

“This black terrazzo table is a classic addition to any patio or deck. Measuring 32″ť square, you can easily match it to Napa’s square terrazzo stools (sold separately) or with your choice of teak or metal outdoor chair. Constructed from concrete with terrazzo accents, these innovative items may be left outside in Virginia winters (unlike terracotta, which is guaranteed to crack). Whether you prefer the look outdoors or in, this table is an undeniable classic.”

Table (32w x 32d x 30h), $559.00

Stool (12.5w x 12.5d x 18h), $125.00

Toto Cube Lamp

Not sure how long this will be on sale, so if you’re thinking it might work, you might want to snap it up while you can save some cash.

Whether placed bedside to provide a soft glow, used to dine on or used in a retail setting to display small objects, the Toto Cube Lamp (1996) functions dually as a lamp and a safe, washable table surface. The large-scale, unadorned geometry of the durable polypropylene diffuser lends function and visual impact to any setting, while being sturdy enough to act as an occasional stool as well. Made in France. Bulb not included: 60W incandescent.

Boris Dining Table

Round dining tables are ideal for so many reasons. They keep everyone on the same social playing field by eliminating the head and foot, and conversation is much easier. I particularly loved this table when I saw it, a nicely beveled edge helps define the top from the interesting base.

“The Boris Dining Table is both nostalgic and state-of-the-art. Its sentimental design pays homage to the definitive production standards and style of Charles and Ray Eames. But Boris’s unconventionally shaped legs give it a form that lies in a dimension somewhere between minimalistic and space-age, making it a great addition to any modern dining area, but a true centerpiece in any retro-inspired environment.”

Luisa Side Table

This is a delightful little side table who’s inspiration came from a visit to grandma’s house. The table is constructed of two layers of hard acrylic with a thin layer of laser cut felt between.

“The inspiration for this design emerged during lunch at the home of Enrico Fratesi’s grandmother, Luisa. For Fratesi, the fact his grandmother’s furniture was covered in plastic was no surprise, since this method of keeping furniture clean was a practice he’d seen all his life. But for his partner, Stine Gam-Pedersen, a native of Denmark, the plastic covers were odd, unexpected and exactly the inspiration needed for their next design.”

Luisa can be used in multiples to create a coffee table, in either three of the same color or a mix.

Parsons Desk, Now on Sale

I’ve had my eyes on this desk for a while and now it’s on sale. I’m not sure how I feel about the limed blonde wood, but I think a nice coat of white paint (almost lacquer-like) would make it stand out nicely.

Spacecube

What a steal- one, two, three or four of these would function quite well as a table/ottoman, and with removable slipcovers, it’d be a cinch to clean up (or change) your living area.

“The latest multifunctional idea from Danish designer Stine Engelbrechtsen is the Space Cube, where simplicity and ingenuity meet in a soft fabric-covered block that can function as a stool, table or ottoman. At 8 lbs, the Space Cube is also light enough to move easily and often, and can be used in multiples, whether in public waiting rooms or in children’s areas where soft surfaces are called for. The cube is resilient yet solid, and is upholstered in a blend of linen and cotton that offers visual texture, a soft hand and enduring strength. The slipcover is easily removable for dry cleaning.”

Cell foam and polyester fiber; upholstery, 74% cotton, 20% viscose, 6% linen.

Available in Anthracite, Brown, Lime or Red Orange.

Biwing Table by Reform

It’s easy to become desensitized to prices these days- especially since it seems like everything you want is way more than you can spend. So, that’s when you have to grow up and start saving for the things you really want, which means you’ll appreciate them that much more when the item of desire actually arrives, right? All this jabber is just so I can make a point that sometimes it’s worth the big price tag.

“The Biwing Table is an instant classic with its sleek curves and functional shelves tucked below the surface at both ends. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, the A1 is made from a single sheet of 1/4″ aluminum and created without any hardware or adhesives. The minimalist modern form is materia efficient and 100% recyclable.”

Low Cut Stool

I suppose this could be considered the I B Pop chair’s side table and/or coordinating stool, and for the price, it’s worth posting.

“This solid stool or side table (it doesn’t matter what you use it for: It works brilliantly as either.) has a secret. low cut can fold flat in a fraction of a second. Ideal as extra seating you can bring out just when you need it or as outdoor furniture that can be stored away neatly until the weather finally lets you sit outside. When low cut is unfolded it takes up almost no space at all.”

These two pieces are customizable in color and size; please contact Ms. Bradley for pricing.

“Both Drip shelf and Puddle table are created from powder-coated steel in a range of colours – ‘Blood’, ‘Oil’ and ‘Milk’ (gloss red, gloss black, and gloss white respectively).”
