This wooden coffee table has just a hint of country styling, with turned legs and base in birch with a light grey painted finish. The oak rectangular top has been left natural, handy for disguising any small scratches or marks it may acquire over time. It`s a solid, timeless piece that would work well in a traditional or contemporary living room.
If you`re into glasstop coffee tables, this one is the goddamn truth. It`s visually light, but sturdy as a glasstop can be (it`s frame is powder-coated brass). Designed in 2016 by Yield Design Co.`s founders, Rachel Gant and Andrew Deming, the unit comes in a variety of different materials, sizes and finishes (the black on black being another personal favorite of mine).
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.
