The very title ‘mobile media table’ is enough to induce an eye roll, as it conjures all sorts of questionable design. However, as the weather gets nicer, and as we begin to enjoy the outdoors with our laptops/tablets/phones, a need for a smaller, portable table does arise. The Bink is a powdercoated indoor/outdoor table that’s sized appropriately for your device and/or your favorite drink, making it a good choice for an outdoor patio or garden area.

Each of these side tables by British designer Gavin Coyle is made from one plank of Douglas fir. 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.

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.

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.

Table bases like tennis hoppers? Sounds iffy but it sure looks good, especially with the copper and marble combinations. You have your choice of small, medium, and large, with three base finishes and two tops, so there’s enough options to make sure it works with your room.
Purchase Information:Price: $179.00 - 499.00

Well, how nice is it to see some marble topped tables not costing an absolute fortune? There’s solid walnut legs too, with brass details and a black steel frame. Both coffee and side are a pretty good alternative to some of the pricier marble tables you see in some showrooms, and the design has a very slight mid century vibe (a definite plus). From Blu Dot, if you hadn’t guessed already.

This is pretty fantastic. The Tick is a leg system which clips/clamps on to a variety of materials to make a table. No screws or tools necessary (see how it functions here). You pick the board- new, old (reuse points!), plywood, plastic, whatever- and then clip on the legs for a super easy new coffee table. Other sizes are in the works, but right now just the two widths (35cm or 50cm) are available. See below for more pictures and info.

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.

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.

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.
Purchase Information:Price: $139.00 each drawer

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.

For this Thursday’s design classic we have Frank Gehry’s Easy Edges Low Table Set. You’ll probably recognize these, as Gehry is well known for using cardboard to make several pieces (Wiggle Chair, Wiggle Stool) of the Easy Edges Collection. Of course, most the world recognizes Gehry for his architecture rather than his use of a rather humble material in surprisingly sturdy furniture.
