  • Kahiko Table: Yes, This Is What A $100,000 Table Looks Like

    Kahiko Table: Yes, This Is What A $100,000 Table Looks Like

    Yes, a $100,000 price tag for a table is absolutely preposterous.  But the Kahiko Table is made from materials that are just as absolutely preposterous, so every cent of that asking price is probably well deserved. The base?  It’s made from a composite of engineered wood and carbon fiber, with a unique geometric shape that looks like it will be right at home as part of a sculpture as it will be in your mansion’s dining room.  The centerpiece, though, [...]

  • How Does Stacking Layers Of Glass And Wood End Up Turning Into This Gorgeous Abyss Table?

    How Does Stacking Layers Of Glass And Wood End Up Turning Into This Gorgeous Abyss Table?

    At first glance, the Abyss Table looks like a fancy aquarium coffee table.  Like someone took a large rock and turned it into a tank where fish can swim around.  But it isn’t.  In fact, there’s not even any water on the darn thing. And there aren’t any rocks either. Instead, it employs a carefully-layered series of wood and glass that creates an illusory effect of a body of water entrenched on a large boulder’s body.  It’s a mesmerizing sight, [...]

    These Tables From Greg Klassen’s River Collection Look Like Intricate Topographic Maps

    We don’t know whether to classify the tables from Greg Klassen’s River Collection as furniture or sculptures.  On the one hand, they’re functional tables you can use for a variety of functions around the house.  On the other, they’re so beautifully crafted that your heart will probably break if you spill spaghetti sauce all over it or accidentally scratch the glass portion while moving the home theater equipment you set up on the tabletop.  Ouch.

    Analog Clocktail Puts A Giant Clock Under Your Coffetable

    We keep a special place in our hearts for analog clocks.  Even though we have the time on every piece of household electronics these days (heck, even my electric fan shows the time), having a huge clock somewhere around the house still makes sense somehow.   If you like to keep a small clock on the coffee table, too, why not trade that in for this Analog Clocktail Table.

    Toldo Table Features Multiple Layers For Organized Storage

    Tables with built-in organization features, like the Vika Veine and this 1930s French Postal Desk, are always a good thing.  At the least, it saves you from having to spend extra time searching out organizers, add-on drawers and a bunch of storage options.  Instead of offering built-in cabinets and drawers, the Toldo Table goes another route, using multiple layers to compartmentalize various items on your desk. Designed by Mexico-based Christian Vivanco, the table is inspired by the top-view aesthetic of [...]

    Height adjustable chairs, especially ones for office use,  are plenty common.  What we seem to be missing, though, are height-adjustable tables that your kids can use as a play table in the morning and you can use to work on a laptop later in the night.  That’s the gap the Takka Stool Set appears to be looking to fill.

    Drink Wine While Sitting On This Giant Champagne Cork Stool

    A long time ago in a land far, far away, a giant came down from his home in the heavens bringing a giant crate filled with giant bottles of wine to share with the puny humans in the land down below.  They partied, got drunk and got a little rowdy through the course of the night, eventually breaking the bottles and leaving nothing but the corks behind.  Those corks have now made their way to the internet and are sold [...]

    Cassette tapes, along with ghetto blasters and Sony’s Walkman, beautifully represent how people consumed their music in the 80s.  So it’s not surprising a lot of today’s designers are incorporating those iconic objects into their creations.  This gorgeous Mixtape Table has to be one of the darling examples.

    Man Table Hides A Mini Fridge Behind The Drawers

    What would a side table designed by men for use by men look like?  I would have guessed something that integrates an actual table, four breasts and a six-pack of beer.  These Man Tables got me right on two out of three. Closed shut and tidied up, the furniture looks just like any finely-finished side table.  It’s elegant enough to fit with most any contemporary living room and functional enough to hold a bunch of tabletop pieces.
