FURNISHINGS

Osorom Bench/Table

This would require a bit more money out of the bank than most other coffee tables, but it’s amazing, so it makes sense that it has a higher price point.

“This incredible design from Grcic features a lozenge-shaped object in white Hirek technopolymer; the cut outs create a magnificent spatial dimension and lightness with the piece. Perfect as a bench or a large surface like a coffee table – and, it can be used outdoors!”

K-bench by Vange

I love the newspaper bench- it can be custom made from your favorite daily news…

“K-bench is an innovative combination of design and materials. Honeycomb structured it can be expanded and contracted into different shapes according to your need. Made from polypropylene it is only 16cm thick when contracted and can extend to 3 metres in length, available in white, grey and orange. Also available is a newspaper version handmade to order out of whatever newspaper you like.”

16-300L x 43H x 64.7D

Stack Stool by Ruby Metzner and Sather Duke

This is perhaps one of the more expensive stools we’ve ever seen, but it’s such a great combination of colors that it’s easy to forget the price tag.

“Inspired in part by the gears and brightly painted turbines seen in hydroelectric generators, and constructed of reclaimed wood, the Stack Stool by Hivemindesign is the latest in new sustainable design. Seven simple silhouette turnings are stacked in alternating woods and colors to create elements that are both different and alike in each possible configuration.”

Nicole Ottoman

Large ottomans for coffee tables are one of the better ideas for a living room. It’s much more comfortable to put your feet up on something soft than on wood or glass, of course, but it also softens up the whole feel of the room, eliminating those hard corners that our shins inevitably find one way or another. Large ottomans like this can also double as extra seating for large gatherings as well.

Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table Duo

Similar in style to the Railroad Tie Dining Table we posted a few days ago, this coffee table duo is superb with its combination of railroad tie wood and simple metal frame.

“Skilled woodworkers transform these reclaimed railroad ties-made from teak, pine, and ironwood-into a nesting coffee table with sturdy metal frames that have been given a waxed finish…Trim, versatile, and at home in any interior, the smaller one stores under the larger table when not in use. Or, use them individually to double your decor options.”

Biblioteca Bookrack by Umbra

So clever, and definitely a piece that people will ask about…it would be interesting to see if others are inspired to find their own coffee tables and turn them into book racks.

“matt carr found inspiration when he found two vintage coffee tables. creating a bookrack for his own home, he configured them ingeniously to give these tables a new life as bookshelves. this design is now re-created with a mahogany natural top and black lacquered legs.”
