Anemone Table

There are very few things that I use the word “gorgeous” to describe. I think this table qualifies. Made of sandblasted glass with attached fragments of handmade lace, the table creates a really wonderful shadow and has a certain harmony between traditional design and new…and, for those of you that might need it, there’s rumor of a coffee table size.

Designers: Anna-Katriina Tilli & Mari Relander
Materials: sand blasted glass, hand-made lace, powder coated metal parts.

71″L x 31.5″W x 28.5″H
(8-12 weeks availability)

Acrylic I-beam Table

Acrylic is not “out”. It’s still “in”. I don’t know if anybody said it was really out yet, but I’m preemptively stating such so that everyone still feels secure in purchasing furniture made out of this great stuff we call acrylic.

Magino Acrylic Stool/Magazine Rack

Worth noting is this little acrylic stool/magazine rack by none other than Karim Rashid. It can hold up to 200 pounds! That’s something. It’ll hold your magazines or other riffraff while still kind of blending into it’s environment. Better still, it’s under $300.00.

Scrapile Cube

Surely you’ve heard of Scrapile furniture before? If so, you earn points. If not, well, you better read up, ’cause they’ve got a really great line of furniture made from wood scraps.
They earn a bajillion points for recycling tons of wood that would go into landfills and creating really great pieces that I certainly would be proud to use and display in my home. These cubes are within a somewhat modest budget, and they offer such versitility with stacking options or as a side table, etc. Each piece is made using non-toxic water-soluble glue and hand finished with Danish Oil which creates a water-resistant finish. Since they’re handcrafted, each one will be unique.

Figure Stool

Made out of solid mango wood, this little stool could be considered a steal for the price. Yesterday I saw something really very quite similar for about four times as much. It had a little bit more character to it, and a slightly different shape, but I’m guessing if you’re pinching pennies certain sacrifices are necessary.

Made in Thailand.

Hola Y Adios Entry Table

Perfect for an entryway or any small space, don’t you think? The two-legged design allows for space to be utilized to its full potential- since it mounts to the wall you avoid baseboards getting in the way (that little inch can actually be a lot when space is tight). The table includes all mounting hardware for both dry wall or stud mounting and of course a little assembly is required.

Made in Spain.

Solid maple wood with natural or wenge stain; extruded aluminum mounting bracket.

H 35″ W 40″ D 10″

Vintage Modern Collection (from Target)

So has anybody bought any of this yet? I’m really quite curious to know how it looks. Is it of decent quality? For those of you that haven’t seen or heard about Target’s new take on furniture (or rather, it’s forray into the affordable modernish crowd of furniture), this is a sample of some of the “Vintage Modern” collection. It looks pretty promising, but who knows.

Shorty Thad Table

Nice for bedside or sofaside or something. The curve of the top panel is especially nice; it’s available in White Enamel or Anodized Aluminum (with or without shelf). I just wish it was a little bit less ‘spensive.

Wood finish available in Walnut, Maple, or Cherry.

*Shown in Cherry, White Enamel top panel w/ shelf.

Wave Desk

Nice little bentwood desk at a reasonable price.

“The perfect desk for intimate spaces. A simple gesture inspired by nature is the essence of the Wave Desk. A single plane of molded plywood folds over to form a new kind of working surface: kinetic, multi-faceted, yet simple and intimate. Designed with the laptop user in mind, with an elevated surface for your mobile phone and other desktop items. The Wave Desk was designed to surf the daily tide.”

Bedside Table by Morten Brorsen

I first saw this side table on another site for a bit more (enough that I thought some of you might consider it not such a great table after all), but when looking through retromodern’s cache of tables, I happily saw it’s available for a little less.

This table is actually a sheet of solid aluminum with a real wood veneer, so it has that nice touch of metal peeking through on the edges. Wallmounted (such a nice option) or resting on the floor, it’s got some nice sleek curves that anybody would admire. Delivery will be a slight wait (10 weeks, sorry) but I think it’d be worth it. Available in oak or American walnut.

12h x 16w x 13.75″d.

Note: no longer available from original retailer.
