Always at the centre of the conversation, sometimes it just takes the right coffee table to renew your space
Need to tie a room together? Despite their low stature, these short-legged gems are attention-getters, and likely the easiest way to whoily re-focus attention in any given space. (Designers like Patricia Urquiola, Giò Ponti and Yabu Pushelberg tend to have that effect on people.) If you don’t believe us, read on about these designer coffee tables, and we’re sure that you’ll see what we mean.
The work of Italy’s Giò Ponti, this Molteni & C coffee table brings timeless style to lavish salons. Rosewood legs with bronze accents coalesce to form a pinwheel-like support for a rounded glass triangular top. See where you can find it here.
To evoke a darkening SoCal sky, designer Patricia Urquiola chose a “pearly midnight blue” for the tubular frames of these low metal coffee tables by Glas Italia; the circular glass tops sport a complementary opaline finish. See where you can find it here.
With stained cherry wood construction, varnished Carrara marble and brass accents, designer Sacha Lakic’s Eden Rock coffee table collection for Roche Bobois isn’t short on luxury flair. And no wonder: Lakic sought inspiration from Louis XVI-era design, albeit tempered with a rhythm borrowed from postwar American furniture. Call for pricing, at Roche Bobois.
Award-winning Canadian studio Yabu Pushelberg presented Nacre — a molded glass table with a mirrored bottom and basin inspired by an oyster shell — at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy. See where you can find it here.
Based on the idea of movement and reconfiguration, each of the pieces from the Playtime collection – a collaboration between Moss & Lam’s Deborah Moss and American designer Holly Hunt – an be used as a side table and a seat. This collection was created to challenge existing notions about how we are expected to interact with our furniture. See it here.
Designer Hans Bølling first sketched out Triiio in 1958 at the tender age of 27. Now in production (finally!) and available in walnut, oak and beech, his long-in-the-making table features an intertwining geometry that, along with brass accents, are fully on display beneath its glass top. See it here.
