Unit Console Table

Thought these two pieces were worth mentioning for those of you looking for some lower-priced furniture items (everything’s relative, right?)…I like how the console seems to just lean against the wall and how it has a good amount of surface space considering the size. The mirror is a good buy as well…

Available in Cherry stain.

BeeBoard Desk

I don’t know about you, but this makes my fingers itch to make furniture out of cardboard. If you’re less inclined but still want the furniture, you now can get the look without the (presumable) hassle.

“An ecologically low-impact solution for the home office, the Desk is made from BeeBoard, a layered cardboard with a honeycomb structure. By keeping the BeeBoard exposed, he lets the material provide a densely textured surface that contrasts with the structures’ surprising lightness. The Desk has two pillar legs that lock into the tabletop’s span and are secured by industrial adhesive. The table is completed with a slender acrylic overlay to provide a smooth, firm writing surface.”

Light Block Table

Lookit! It’s an end table and a light all in one. The small inner square contains the bulb and the cord/socket is at the bottom of the inner square. It’s a nice size too.

Context Furniture William & Mary Tables

So if you need some surface space on a small budget, I’d recommend taking a look at these tables. I think they’ve got a lot of punch for the price (quite fond of the stylized shaping of the legs with the laminated top).

“Context Furniture’s William & Mary tables add a different kind of contrast, with their ultrasmooth laminate surfaces and aluminum legs. The silhouettes (again, especially in the legs, but also in the shaping of the tabletop edges) still draw on historical designs, but the overall result is distinctly modern.”

Some color options: black knight, invasion red, monarch white, royal blue

Materials: Anodized aluminum legs with 3/4 inch laminated, multi-ply top.

Thorsten Van Elten Magazine Reader

Have we posted this before? I don’t think so, but it sure seems like we would have. There’s not much to say, other than this table is stupendous. It’s made of powder coated 3mm mild steel and is available in white, dark blue, and grey. I think I love this one more than my shoes too.

Eames Rectangular Table

The attention to detail here on the legs sets this table apart from the mass of wobbly tables out there…
“Genuine innovation is rare. And perhaps no one has achieved it as often as Charles and Ray Eames. Their inventive design for this dining table makes functionality beautiful with an uncluttered profile well suited to both traditional and contemporary interiors. To give the table maximum strength and stability, Charles and Ray created a design that securely affixes the base to the 1-inch-thick tabletop; adjustable glides keep things on a even keel.”

noguchi prismatic tables

As you may have noticed, I’ve been posting some interesting shapes lately. I used to be very rectilinear, but now I think I’m rebeling in the form of hexagonals and other equilaterals. I have not yet hit rock-bottom (amorphous or abstracts), but I’m teetering. Do they have programs for people like me?

Barbarella Side Table

This little table is pretty neat. It’s a ready-to-assemble type of thing. It arrives flat and you bend it into its shape. There’s a coffee and console table too. And! If you like robin’s egg blue, you’ve got that option for the base as well.

Mealbox

So, okay, there’s not a price posted for this yet, so it technically is not available for immediate purchase, yet I’m way too impressed with it to put off posting until there is a dollar-sign-amount assigned. This table-in-a-box is really so incredibly clever and really is the perfect solution to those small spaces that we all invariably run into at some points in our lives. The pictures pretty much explain the process…

Birch Plywood reinforced with carbonfibre. Neoprene rubber seat-padding. Table doubles as coffee-table.

Dimensions when assembled:
h: 40cm w: 68cm l: 77 – 233cm

Dimensions when boxed:
h: 43cm w: 68cm l: 77cm
