This table is so legendary and so ubiquitous it has essentially become a meme (see here for more on this). Designed in 1942 by sculptor Isamu Noguchi, it is widely regarded as one of the most iconic pieces of mid-century furniture ever. Noguchi was the son of a Japanese poet and an American writer, and lovers with one Frida Kahlo (these both count as artistic bonafides in my book). The original design was literally made for the President of The Museum of Modern Art, and its final production version has a place in the museum`s permanent collection. You`ll also be one step closer to a Westworld-approved living room.
La Redoute`s Lunja table has four drawers for stashing away remote controls, magazines, letters and other living room clutter. It`s made in solid pine with a teak stain and wax for a traditional feel. The finish is good for the price – drawers slide easily, the handles have a smart antique look, and the 5cm-high base gives the whole piece a solid feel.
Want storage that doesn`t look like storage? Want to have what amounts to a trapdoor of storage? Maybe you want neither, but that doesn`t make Rove Concepts Truman coffee table any less attractive. A walnut veneer-finished, white lacquered and frosted glass top contemporary monster of a coffee table. The thing is all of 53 inches wide, and gets wider when you slide open the sneaky storage compartments. This coffee table is new design coffee-table-meets-dinner-table, perfected.
