Tables

Gus* Stump Coffee Table

How do you feel about faux-bois woodgrain? Terrific or tacky? I vote for terrific in this case, as the pattern is grooved into the sides and top of a white coffee table. It adds an organic feel- “updated organic modern” would be the label if you’re in need of classification. Perhaps even more exciting than the table is the handy storage box (Stump Storage Box, pictured below) which provides a great place for all sorts of things- toys, blankets, pillows, etc.- and could double as a side table (or stool?) if need be.

Frame Coffee Table

I’ve been thinking about changing out my coffee table for a more appropriate size, and this caught my eye as a possible option. A walnut top and a brushed steel base makes it fully appropriate for a modern living space, and it’s simple enough it wouldn’t take center stage (important when you have a lot of other stuff fighting for attention). Plus, there’s three different sizes to choose from, which gives a custom feel without a custom price.

Willoughby Ave Collection

Looking for something slightly different in an accent table? These two tables by 31 & Change, a Brooklyn-based furniture company, have one side that’s angled in to add a little drama to an otherwise seamless surface. Both pieces are made from inch thick Walnut. Also, be sure to check out their other offerings… the Whipple St Mirror and the wood top tables are worth a look.

Muuto Around Tables

The aim of Thomas Bentzen’s Around table for Muuto is functional simplicity. The tables are meant to be stable, durable, and the edge around the table keeps coffee cups and drinks right where they belong. As Bentzen says, “around thus forms a practical and welcoming place to gather.” Two different sizes are available: a larger coffee table and a smaller side.

MUJI Table

Where do you go for minimal furniture that doesn’t cost an entire arm and a leg? MUJI, of course. And what do you know, MoMA Store has this MUJI Table for $420, which is a pretty good price for a dining/work table. Made of ash wood veneer and MDF; easy to assemble.

28.5h x 59w x 11″d

Dylan Dining Table

Designed by Jonas Wahlstrom, this sustainable shesham plank table has just the right balance of wood and iron to give the industrial vibe without getting too heavy metal, if you know what I mean. The architectural iron ‘W’ base changes shape depending on your sight line; it adds an interesting visual touch. A water-based clear lacquer sealant protects the wood, though coasters are recommended to protect the finish from temperature extremes and spills. Best of all, the price is under the $1G mark.

Hathaway Desk

So, this looks pretty simple from the front, but what makes it stand out is the handy storage space in the back for power strips or cable management. Power strips aren’t the nicest things to look at, and a desk that has a specific space to hide that and computer cords deserve a mention. I suppose you could float it in a room as well (as shown by the happy guy in sneakers below), though take note of the perforated panel detail.

Metal Truss Work Table

This work table caught my eye the last time I visited West Elm (had to check out the Glass Greenhouse in person), and despite its rather small footprint, it’s a great price. While the size is a tad small for my own personal workspace, it would do well in a tight spot or as an entryway console.

Solid mango wood top with weathered finish; iron legs.
54″w x 28.5″d x 29.5″h.

Stash Stacking Drawers

These stacking drawers are somewhere in between the dresser category and a side table with storage. While the mix-and-match look might not fit everyone’s taste, I can see how the versatility of this would be handy to have if you prefer to change things around often.

Beam Table/Stool

If you need some character in a room- as in a big chunky side table or stool- here it is. HollerDesign brings us the Beam table and/or stool; it pretty much nails the rustic modern look with its interesting joint (see pic below) and hand charred finish.

Grove Office Center

This piece would be perfect for tucking away a home office. The size is big enough to hold a computer, accessories and files, yet it’s not too large… as in, it’s not a wooden behemoth crouched in the corner of your living room. There’s the mid century feel that most of us are fond of, and it’s handcrafted (domestically) of solid cherry wood, which means it’ll last long enough to pass down to your children/relatives.

Caliper Coffee Table

Here’s a coffee table that puts an end to clutter: two hidden drawers reveal storage at each end, making a secret spot to stash away tv remotes, games, and reading materials. Not a bad price either. (There’s some assembly required, but I’m guessing it’s just attaching the legs.)
