A good coffee table is a practical piece that can pull together a whole room. More sculptural designs make a style statement and provide a focus within a large space.
Muji is Japan`s most popular home retailer. The brand, which is just now pushing further into the North American market, is enormous and stocks hundreds of product categories, yet it manages to tie its quiet, steady design aesthetic through each and every one, including this no-frills oak coffee table.
The Aalto table from Cox & Cox is made from carbonised bamboo, a hardening technique more commonly used for flooring. This material makes the coffee table durable yet light, with the looks of natural wood but not the cost. The slatted shelf gives added storage, but a drawer would have been a welcome addition. A matching console table for the hall costs £250.
