When lightness is needed in a small or colorful room, the Peekaboo table ($279) is the perfect choice. Why spend money on a beautiful rug to then cover one-third of it with a table? CB2’s designers solved that design problem with the creation of this coffee table.
We recently received photos of a fantastic coffee table that can be modified to suit your needs. The REK Coffee Table, created by architect and designer Reinier de Jong, transforms from a wooden block into a multitude of designs with a few simple moves. After deigning furniture items like the REK bookcase, KEER chair and VOLT table, the talented Reinier de Jong created a versatile piece of furniture to accompany your everyday coffee. He explains the inspiration, use of materials and functions of this modern coffee table: “REK is a coffee table that grows with your coffee needs. When you have visitors, just get some chairs and extend the table any way you like. Enough space for all those coffee cups and store your book or knitting set in the spaces underneath the tops.
As with shape, you will need to determine the size you need. The height of a coffee table is important. It should be no lower than 1-2 inches from the seat of your couch. The standard height for a table is 16-18 inches and pairs well with a typical sized couch. A higher sofa requires a taller table, one that is 20-21 inches in height. The taller table will also be more convenient if you entertain a lot, as it will be easier for guests to set down a glass or a plate.
The Slim Cocktail Table ($379) comes in 14 colors straight out of a jelly bean jar; a smaller version ($219) is also available. Besides the fun, vibrant color options, the two sizes are designed to work in any space. We especially like the small one (36″ W x 12″ D x 16″ H) for rooms in which space is limited; it also works perfectly as a bench when extra seating is needed.
