Minimal Float Wall Desk

A floating wall desk for under a grand might sound as likely as a hipster who’s never considered ironic facial hair, but stranger things have happened. The floating wall desk by Dario Antonioni is just under the $700 mark and has a full slide out tray to double your work area. There’s also a small wire management slot to keep your cords tidy. Need it be emphasized that you’ll have to follow the installation instructions correctly or you’ll have a small disaster at hand? If you’re not particularly handy, enlist help before tackling it on your own.

Mantis Desk

Perhaps you should take this desk’s name in reference to Mantises being highly visual organisms that are skilled in mimicry rather than their tendency for occasional sexual cannibalism, for the Mantis Desk does successfully blend in as a simple, modern workspace by hiding all manner of cables (via a discreet cable management system) and providing just enough space for notes and office supplies (see noteboard and drawer- there’s a double bookend as well). In multiples or alone, this desk would do well in keeping your officemates- or just you- organized and on task.

Legs Crossed Desk

Legs crossed or leapfrog, either way these legs are something different in desk design. Close inspection shows well constructed joints that ensure balance and stability despite the initial precarious impression. Side by side drawers will hold essentials while a two-toned oak and black walnut mix further add to the desk’s animated appearance.

Core System Table

Look closely and you’ll see powder coated steel incorporated underneath this tabletop, though it’s the beauty of solid White Oak (locally sourced) that really steals the show. A hand rubbed oil finish gives off a nice gleam and the black oxide fasteners provide a dash of contrast and detail. Each table is made and assembled to order in Strand Design’s workshop.

Cobalt Blue Lacquer Desk

My goodness, take a look at the savings on this cobalt desk by John Reeves. With a regular price of $1895, the sale price of $1099 looks like one steal of a deal, especially considering that the bright blue color is thanks to lacquered panels (lacquer = work). Smooth, self closing runners and well considered proportions give this desk a refined feel, while the drawers and door give you access to appropriate storage space for a home office or dressing area.

Intimo Secretary Desk

Well, doesn’t this look promising? Compact desks are rather hard to find nowadays, so it’s refreshing to see one with a minimal design aesthetic that’s affordable. Plus, how lovely would it be just to close it all up once you’re done with your email/work? No tidying necessary, just close the hinge and you’ll not need to stare at your laptop and other miscellany. There’s a small storage shelf along the top and a hidden shelf along the bottom that will fit things like your laptop and phone.

JAC Side Tables

Pieces are stacked together in certain sequences to highlight the patterns created by the growth rings, which, as you can see, lends an extra level of refinement to the design. The tables are then are machined on a lathe to create geometric profiles.

Tessello Table Legs

Noah Lambert has added a great leg option to the marketplace: the Tessello. Sold as a set of 3 for $90 (or a set of 4 for $120) it’s a pretty affordable option, especially if you already have a table that just needs a makeover in the leg department. Media center, coffee table, nightstand, you name it, the legs are a no-brainer for an easy update, as you’d only need a drill/screwdriver and screws or bolts to attach them to your choice of table top. Each leg is cut from a sheet of .1875″ thick steel and bent with a custom jig to insure uniformity.

Elko Coffee Table

Do you like a little retro feel in your furnishings? This Elko Coffee Table from Eastvold has a just a hint of 50’s mod in its angled leg base.

Also, Eastvold offers custom sizes for an additional fee, so if you need a specific size, you’re in luck.

HM Select Eames Wire Base Low Table

Just when you thought you were well over any (more) Eames furniture, Herman Miller goes and tempts you with a limited edition of the Wire Base Low Table in red, blue, and yellow. These tables are in honor of the late Ray Eames (she would have been 100 this year) and are only available for a limited time, so, if you’re a fan, and the primary colors get your ‘must-have-this-immediately’ juices flowing, get a move on and add one to your cart.

Hearty Table

However you feel about the Novogratz duo, they do know how to pick pieces with character. This table for CB2 is based on their own French antique lab table, and, as you can see, has two drawers on each side that will hold cutlery, table linens, and all manner of family miscellany, as the case may be. The top is solid acacia wood with a bottom iron stretcher base.

Sfelt Table

Here’s a relatively simple idea executed well: a removable felt wrap protects the table’s surface from feet, drinks, laptops, etc. The handier among us might replicate this idea on our own coffee tables, but don’t discount the table under the smart felt idea just yet. It’s solid walnut with nicely curved TIG-welded steel legs, so it’ll stand the test of time while easily living up to its name.

Ping-Pong Conference Table

Brilliant! Now your conference table can also be a ping-pong table, thus saving space and encouraging ‘fun’ breaks for you and your team. The central panel either functions as the ping-pong net support or as a hide-away cable management, while drawers at either end house all the ping-pong (or meeting) supplies. How is this not a good idea?

Walnut Wire Side Table

This price is right for this side table, especially considering the style and materials. The warm walnut top balances out the cool copper wire base, and the size is just about perfect for a table lamp and a few odds and ends. The top is removable should you want to store something in the base, though who knows what that might look like. Might be better to leave it as is.
