This side table is from Phuze a collaboration between glass artist Orfeo Quagliata and his father Narcissus. Made from strips of colored glass fused together to make a vibrant and strong quarter-inch surface. The top is attached to the base with magnets. This is just such a great piece – I can see it either as the focal point of entire room or as support for a color-driven interior. At about $990 this is a not an inexpensive table, but I think worth every penny.
Our first table! And you thought this was a chair blog.
This table design is available from Bark’s Acorn Collection. Bark is based in Cornwall (UK) and is a husband and wife collaboration. The table comes in 4 wood options maple, black walnut, oak and cherry and is made by hand to order. Several sizes are also offered. It is hard to find a mid-century influenced coffee table with such clean lines and a certain restrained confidence. No tricks or gimmicks here. Just a straight forward, well-made piece of furniture. There is a slight surf board shape, but nothing to imply kitsch. Great table, but I am not sure I am ready to replace the Lane Acclaim table I refurbished last summer.
Call for a price! That means more than you might want to spend. Another table from Bark was about 1000 pounds so this might be in the same league.
