The Campfire Table

 


Designed by: 
Tomek Archer (Tomahawk Studios)

Why we love it: Like its namesake this table invites you to gather around, tell stories and enjoy the warmth of others. Warm and fuzzies all round. Beautifully resolved design.

Where you can get it: Anibou

Petalo

title  

Designed by: Charlotte Perriand for Cassina

Why we love it: These nesting tables remind us of boomerangs somehow. The Petalo was designed in 1951 but has only recently been produced in a range of colours.

Where you can get it: Corporate Culture

Airtable

title  

Designed by: Lorenzo Damiani

Why we love it: We’re not sure how practical this is for, say, the newspaper or anything that’s not tied down, but it’s one of those quirky designs we just can’t resist.

Where you can get it: Campeggi

Merci Donald

title  

Designed by: Elena Cutolo for Glas Itali

Why we love it: Cubism gets a revival in this simple geometric table with great nooks for storage – lined in colourful lacquered glass. A bold statement for your living room.

Where you can get it: Space Furniture

Hexad

 

Designed by: Tomoko Azumi

Why we love it: The simple form and solid oak of this table mean it will work in almost any situation. It’s also stackable and, due to its geometric shape, can be configured in a cluster with varying effects.

Where you can get it: t.n.a design studio

Crate Series 5

title  

Designed by: Jasper Morrison for Established & Sons

Why we love it: Alluded to with its name, there is something very simple, very tactile about this table. The dovetail joints and short round legs evoke childhood memories of toy boxes and wooden block.

Where you can get it: Living Edge

Stobie coffee table

title  

Designed by: Lex Stobie

Why we love it: This table by Aussie-based designer Lex Stobie offers a very Danish feel. Its thin base, glass top and refined detailing give the piece a light aesthetic.

Where you can get it: Great Dane Furniture

Sarai Coffee Table

title
 

Designed by: Norman & Quaine

Why we love it: The simple steel base and choice of stone, timber, polymer or glass tops makes this one a favourite for the options you have to make it your own.

Where you can get it: Norman and Quaine
