Tables

Plunk Desk

Standing is better than sitting, blah, blah, blah… you’ve heard all about it, but you’re not about to change out your favorite desk for some kind of wonky contraption that screws up your whole nicely-designed-house/office vibe. Plus, you work from lots of different places, so it might not even make much of a difference anyways. Am I right?

Well, that’s just where the Plunk Desk fits in. It’s a portable, adjustable standing desk handcrafted from wood and aluminum, and, it fits into a custom bag for easy transport. Currently a Kickstarter project, you can pledge $395 to get the Plunk Desk at $100 off the retail price.

Simple Machines Round Table

Just as they announced in a previous edition of their magazine, Dwell now has an online store. Now I shall go find my wallet, because I need to hide it and then hit myself over the head in hopes of memory loss. This Simple Machines Round Table stood out on first perusal, as the legs appear to screw into the top and has a clean, simple appearance. The companion Square Table, Stool, and Bench are equally compelling.

Rewrite Desk

This writing desk makes an appropriate spot for bills, correspondence (if you still use snail mail) and, more likely, your laptop. Reclaimed oak and FSC certified white oak (or locally sourced maple) legs and base combine to give a nice warmth and a traditional nod to a modern silhouette. There’s one dovetail drawer for desk accessories.

Turn Tables

Lucky you, these tables (and all other Blu Dot furniture) are 20% off their regular price until November 10th. Maybe you just need one table beside your favorite chair to set your drink upon, or maybe you need a few to scatter around for laptops, lamps and books. As each table is made from solid Acacia wood, they’re hefty and will react to changes in temperature.

Colors & NOSIGNER’s Cartesia Desk

Talk about crazy storage, check out the way these drawers move in order to open. One goes sideways, two go forward, there’s even a sneaky one in the back for electric cables- or other things that need hiding- that you wouldn’t know is there at first glance. Created by Japanese house Colors, this desk isn’t an impulse buy, that’s for sure, but considering the master craftsmanship and materials, it’ll last longer than you will, given the proper care.

GMT-13

Yes, this is simple, box-like side table. So why does it cost 585 smackeroos? Partly because it’s made from aluminum plate powder-coated in ultra-fine texture, and partly because “its scale is fixed by self-imposed geometrical constraints using the golden ratio”… so there. Does that explain the price tag? It at least explains the name, GMT = The Golden Mean Table. GMT-13 is available in black, red, blue, and white.

QBS

A box is just a box, unless it’s a perfectly square, 17″ box with Rift white oak or walnut veneers and lacquered sides. That kind of box, in this case called the QBS, you can use as an end table, bedside table, or group several together as a coffee/cocktail table. Are you picking up what I’m putting down here? Also available with white lacquer, from MDRN.

Waiter/Waitress Tables

Now, we can all agree that these two tables aren’t cheap (even on sale), but let’s pay attention to the fact that each one can be positioned in different ways for different functions. If used in the C shape position, the tables can nest under and over a seating surface, giving you a very handy tabletop for a drink or device (or both) without taking up too much floor space. Or, perhaps you like breakfast in bed? Either table could be the perfect resting spot for your morning coffee/tea and breakfast plate. As these tables are relatively slim, I’m guessing that they’d be easy to move around your home as needed.

Wintercheck 06/08

What happens to orphaned furniture? Often they end up in a very sad place called the landfill, sitting unused and unloved. Wintercheck Factory has saved a few pieces from this slow death, and, with some upgrades and additions, they’re now available online for your purchase (at not bad prices, I might add). Pictured above is the Felt Top Table, $375, who in a previous life sported a linoleum top and was drawerless.

Spacebox Wall Mounted Storage Table

If you have a small space, you need a few tricks up your sleeves to maximize every square foot. Count this Spacebox Wall Mounted Storage Table as a smart option for a small worktop. Use it for your laptop (or breakfast), and then when you’re done, fold the top down to free up extra floor space. The open-front compartments are ideal for displaying your favorite items and books, and will give a little personality to the otherwise blank white frame. Think of it for the kitchen, hallway, or kid’s room.

Double Cross Dining/Console Table

This dining table has a trick up its sleeve: it folds in half to use as a console, a bar, or a desk, thus giving you the versatility for multiple uses. Push it against a wall for console/bar/desk use, and when guests are over, simply pull it out, unfold it, and you have a proper dinner table.

Noi Dining Table

There are quite a few minimal dining tables out there in the marketplace, some of them quite affordable, but not very many of them can claim remarkable craftsmanship in the way the top meets the base. If you look closely, you’ll see that the Noi Dining Table’s surface rests within its steel frame, giving an ultra-slim look and a very durable edge. And, not to worry if you want a specific size or color; Ohio Design offers a good selection of options.
