We recently received a minimalist coffee table idea from Jason Phillips Design, entitled Right Angles. Here is the information we were sent in the press release: “In geometry, a right angle is an angle formed by two straight lines that intersect at exactly 90 degrees. As a rotation, a right angle corresponds to a quarter turn, as in a quarter of a full circle. I love exploring dimension, and what comes across as a simple table is actual a painstakingly balanced series of abrupt changes in direction. My intention was to go against one’s natural desire to create a standard path metal bars would move to create a table.The asymmetry works because the angles are so exact. As I worked and reworked the lines, I realized there was opportunity to play with functional glass shelves at different heights. Right Angles is a cocktail table and it measures 48x34x17″h. Constructed from cold-pressed steel and finished in matte black. Other finishes can be custom ordered.” Minimalist and practical, the table is a lovely addition to any modern interior, provided it is inhabited by someone who likes to dust often.
Sometimes thinking outside the box allows you to find the perfect coffee table that perhaps is not a table at all. Old steamer trunks, cedar chests and ottomans are fabulous alternatives to the typical coffee table. Each option offers its own eclectic appeal. Ottomans for instance can be made of leather or beautiful fabrics that will add some additional visual interest and texture to the room. They can also serve as a place to put your feet up without concern for the tabletop. They will work well in any high traffic family room that gets a lot of use. Often trunks were the only way immigrants brought their lives from the old world to the new. If you are lucky, you may have inherited an old streamer trunk to use nostalgically in your family room creating an interesting conversation piece.
You can extend REK in various ways, straight or sideways, whatever you like or fits best within your place. Built-in stops make sure that you will not extend the table too far or in the wrong direction. The bevelled edges function as a cut-out grip to start sliding the table parts from their basis position. A small example of creating something by taking something away, a recurring theme in Reinier de Jong’s work. The dimensions vary: from 60 by 80 cm to a maximum of 60 by 160 cm and 80 by 120 cm. REK coffee table is related to REK bookcase, the shelves that grow with your book collection.
s it a coffee table? Or is it a coffee table…within a coffee table…within a coffee table? Inspired by the brain-boggling cityscapes in the movie Inception, this gorgeous piece is constructed of bent wood, steel and 3D-printed miniatures painstakingly rendered to look like real buildings.
