Matt Gagnon : Paper Table

Yep, it’s a bit more than maybe most of you would like to spend on a coffee table, BUT it’s made out of recycled paper and it’s freaking cool. Save your pennies and it’ll be worth it, trust me.

“Recycled newsprint boards cut and fused to create a coffee table to hold your current reading materials. With the addition of new magazines the form of the table is complete. “

Keith’s Console

Occasionally I’ll run across a better picture of a product that we’ve posted from long ago (in this case, March of ’06), and it’s only right to update the post so that you as a reader have a better idea of what’s available in today’s market. Most often the price will be a far cry from the original, but happily, this console is still available from one retailer for the same price of $300, while another has it priced at $620. I guess it pays to shop around, huh?

Three-legged console table, inspired by the rock and roll antics of the legendary Mr. Keith Moon. For all wall types. Solid oak finished with a clear matte lacquer.

Dimensions: 28 x 28 x 11.5 inches

Snow Table

Nendo: Snow Table
Swedese, Sweden.

“Designed by Nendo in Japan. Have you ever awaked in the morning to a soft blanket of snow covering your yard and smiled? Perhaps it is because there is something about the winter that appeals to the minimalist in all of us. Everything covered in a nice clean white veil, the hard edges of ice on the windows. With the Snow Table, designedy Nendo for Swedese you can bring some of that winter beauty into your home. This modular and expandable table is made by connecting a series of snowflake shaped white plywood sections together, and placing an appropriately sized pane of glass on top. We love the modular aspect of it that makes it possible to expand as necessary, or as desired.”

Material: White lacquered “snow flakes” in MDF. Clear Glass Top. Simple assembly required.

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.”

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.”

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.

How cool would it be to have a little leaning desk with a wall-mounted monitor? Or it would be great for a laptop too.

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.

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?
