The Top Tables of 2008

Back to Articles

For those for whom just any table just won’t do, Interior Design magazine recently shined its spotlight on some of the most drool-worthy designs in its third annual Best of the Year Awards.   One standout is Altura Furniture’s Nexus Square Extension Table, a Zen-modern pedestal table that expands diagonally, resulting in a perfectly balanced yet asymmetrical base.   Another is the Morotai Table by Carlo, which combines three round tables perched on ultra-thin pedestals into an impossible-not-to-notice piece of art.

For modernist fans who want to take the retro look to the next level, the brand-new Chloe Drink table rebrands designer Holly Hunt as a 21st century Eileen Grey.  It is small and round, made of polished silver metal with a glass top – but also has a uniquely graceful form that will work in any setting.  The Hex Table is so modern it’s futuristic, linking together magnetically-charged, stainless steel hexagon segments into whatever configuration works for you.  Finally, Dune’s Dare Table takes minimalism to the bare minimum, balancing a cocktail sized wood table top on a barely-there slice of steel.  Of course, words can hardly to these tables justice.  To see them for yourself, check out the latest edition of Interior Design.
