Operating out of Portland, Oregon, Schoolhouse`s specialty is making goods that endure, both in style and form. This cubist coffee table recalls art and architecture of the early 20th century, but does so in a way that`s not completely unfamiliar in the present. Laminate tabletop, welded powder-coated steel frame and legs and an exposed plywood accent come together in a fit of blue and black.
Designed by Stockholm-based studio Form Us With Love, the Cage storage series has bags of modern style. A stained-ash top sits on thin metal legs that loop together to form the base. At 30cm high, it can easily accommodate a basket underneath for magazines or blankets. It`s a little smaller and squarer than traditional coffee tables, and could be used as a side table too.
Light tables on legs work well placed on a rug, and make easy work of cleaning around them. Heavier styles are boxier in nature, but might prove more practical for storage.
