Illusions Acrylic Side Table

I think I like this table. It’s a good price and kind of fun (and who am I kidding, it’s acrylic).

“This simple acrylic table resembles a transparent tablecloth. Light, visually stimulating, and an incredible value! Perfect as an occasional table or several clustered to create a coffee table in front of a sofa.”

designer: John Brauer, 2006

birch wood tray side table

I really like this little table. And even though I’m not usually a big fan of birch wood, I think this table could use a coat of oil or wax and it would fit in nicely with some of your more sophisticated pieces. Another great thing about it is that the top lifts off for use as a tray.

Cross Extension Table

This table seems to fit function and beauty equally within its design.

“With spare clean lines and no decorative excess, Matthew Hilton’s Cross Extension Table pairs the elegance and warmth of classic English furniture with the simple beauty of 21st-century modernism…The table top expands with a simple pull, allowing up to two leaves to be inserted, extending the table’s length from a minimum of 78.75″ to 116″. After the guests depart, the leaves store neatly in a compartment on the table’s underside. And because of the leg’s darting design, as many as 10 can sit comfortably at the Cross Table without discomfort or squeezing.”

Solid oak base; veneered oak top with solid oak supports.

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
