blow up bamboo collection

You’ve seen the original “blow up” series in stainless steel (2003), but take a look at the newer bamboo version. The natural bamboo sticks are hand tied using raffia soaked in glue, which results in a strong yet lightweight framework. It’s nice to see a warmer alternative to the original steel.

Clarity Color Glass Tables

This looks like something straight out of Verner Panton’s portfolio, doesn’t it? Pink, orange, and yellow glass is combined to form these colorful ‘color-wheel’ tables. Now, if only they made this in a lucite-ish version at, let’s say, a fifth of the cost, then maybe it’d fit nicer into all of our budgets.

Natural Tree-Stump Side Table

Pointer Side Table

Partly why this table is inexpensive is that it’s painted wood veneer, and if you’ve ever had anything of the same, you know there’s a good chance of the paint finish chipping or dinging the minute you pick it up. But, that said, if you’re not needing something super durable (i.e. kid proof) you might consider snapping up one or two for side tables. Plus, who knows, maybe this table will exceed expectations.

Made of matte painted wood veneer
Available in black, orange or white.

Matryoshka End Table by Rich Brilliant and Willing

Rich Brilliant and Willing is one of my new favorite design houses and the trio are definitely ones to watch. Their new Matryoshka table featureswood slats with each seam being overlapped by the one next to it.

The table gets its name because each of the three sizes (End, Cocktail & Coffee) – can nest inside one another, like Matryoshka Dolls.

Available in white, black, red or green.

Momantai Etched Stainless Steel Top Tables

Second hand tables get a new lease of life with etched stainless steel tops. It’s a stellar idea, and I sort of love the traditional lace-work design paired with steel. As each piece is unique, prices depend on size and condition; emailing Momantai Design directly will give you a better estimate. If you’re not all that into second hand furniture, maybe you’ll prefer the Praios table (shown bottom) with its brand spanking new thin metal frame.

Classic lace-work translated by means of modern production technology; by etching the pattern in stainless steel, the authentic lace of Plauener Spitze gets a new graphic interpretation. A collaboration of Roel van Hove of Etsprit and Ulrike Jurklies of Momantai Design

Recycled Tables Rondra, Firun, Rahja, Phex (top): between 100 and 600
Table Praios, 190 x 80 cm (bottom): 3521 for the the brushed finish, and 4110 for the polished surface.

Delivery should take roughly 8 weeks depending on the destination.

Also, keep in mind shipping costs (from The Netherlands) might bump the price up quite a bit, so bear that in mind.
