DeStijl table

This is a nice DeStijl example was designed in 1922 and reportedly was one of Eileen Grays favorite pieces and stood in her living room until her death.

“She exhibited it in 1922 at an exhibition of French art in Amsterdam. It was no surprise that this small table aroused the attention of the DeStijl architects. The sculptural Quality, the use of color and the logical design are all features of ‘DeStijl’.”

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.

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.

H 15″ x W 18″ x D 10″

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.

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.

They’re all quite nice- also keep in mind they are hand made, so that’s why there are some zeros on the price tag.

Romance Collection by Contraforma

I saw these on design*sponge a while back and hesitated posting them because the shop’s overseas and I thought that wouldn’t be too convenient…BUT I kept thinking about them and suddenly realized that I might just have to post them anyways, regardless of the shipping costs/time.

It’s laser-cut, powder-coated steel with an oh-so-ever romantic preforated floral design…I especially love the contrasting color inside. And, it’s suitable for both indoor or outdoor use. Available in white with pink interior, graphite black with pink interior, or graphite black with white interior (on some of the pieces, but not all). Delivery outside Lithuania usually takes up to 4 weeks; Ona (that’s the store) ships everywhere. I guess I should mention there are other dimensions/designs-I encourage you to investigate further if you’re interested.
