Ideal for adding a bit of colour to the living room, the top of this coffee table is made from strips of reclaimed wood, salvaged from old houses in India. The recycled nature of the product means you can`t be quite sure what you`re going to get. Edges and legs in riveted metal continue the industrial look of this simple table.
Godparents of mid-century design Charles and Ray Eames`s produced many incredible and incredibly weird products (like the famed Eames Elephants), and this coffee table is a little of both. The culmination of a perfected method of bending plywood and pressing it to a super-heated membrane to hold it in place, this coffee table is not kin to what you`ll find at Lowe`s. The bent wood spider legs and pressed tabletop resulting are simultaneously familiar, alien and brilliant.
A more subtle riff on the warpy, curvy Atomic style of the later mid-century movement, the Maggi is subtle yet appealing. It`s not the cheapest of Article`s mountain of a coffee table collection, but it`s easily one of the most interesting. It also happens to be made with pretty sturdy materials as well — a black vegan leather shelf, walnut wood top and powder-coated metal legs. It also ships with no assembly required.
