One of our 2016 New Year’s design resolutions is to declutter. And what better way to do so than by finding a home for everything? The Lacquer Storage Coffee Table ($599) by West Elm has a pop-up top to hide magazines, gadgets and remotes. Got a lot to hide? A 50-inch-wide version also is available.
Another important factor is to know what the primary use will be. Will the table be more decorative, or provide storage? How much storage will be enough? Tables can come with shelves, or drawers to hold everything from kids’ toys to that stash of magazines you will someday read. Regardless if storage is needed, there is still a good chance you will want to be able to place a drink or a plate down without the risk of tipping over. Pick a piece that will hold drinks and snack plates with ease. If décor is more the purpose, you can focus on one with lines and texture in a material you love.
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.
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.
