Take Five: 9 of the Best Coffee Tables

Striking silhouettes and unusual surfaces result in high design

Not just a place for drinks and beautiful books, a coffee table can make a striking centrepiece, as the examples in our edit testify.

The latest looks go way beyond familiar table profiles, from Lara Bohinc’s Orbit, a gorgeously graphic, geometric metal structure to Cristina Celestino’s Caryllon for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, with its flower shape and beautiful wooden inlay.

There’s a hint of 1950’s modernism in Emile Jones’ Stack for Heal’s, while Natuzzi’s Orfeo mixes metal, marble, wood veneer and lacquer to an eye-catching effect.

New technology places its part, with Daniel Schofield’s Blur table cut by water jets to achieve its intricately fluted glass base. Also featuring glass is Calvin at Made, which cleverly combines the fragility of this material with the strength and sturdiness of concrete and steel.

The classic Noguchi coffee table has had a subtle update, with its new beautiful oak base. Another oak piece is Kristina Dam’s Table, a minimalist model that exemplifies Scandinavian simplicity.

Finally from Dare Studio is Riley, a versatile piece that elegantly combines two metal-framed, timber-top tables, which can be joined together as a single piece with an over-layer, or separated to use as a coffee table and side table.
