Shuffle table

Mia Hamborg gives new life to the old Nordic craft tradition of turning wood by adding the colour and playful forms from old painted wooden toys (see image above). It’s up to you where you want to put this fine piece of furniture and being truly Nordic and democratic, you can even decide the form, colours and height of the table. Available from &Tradition

Tod Table

The curved Tod Side Table, designed by Todd Bracher for the Italian manufacturer Zanotta, is cool as well as functional. With its distinctive curve, it perfectly nestles against your sofa or lounge chair in the living room or keeps your things within reach of the bed as a night stand in the bedroom. Available from Zanotta

Bowler Table

Shane Schneck’s Bowler Table is a compact side table that is ideal for small spaces. The single tube that extends upwards creates a defined profile, which doubles as a functional handle too. The stem, handle and tray are made in powder coated steel, with a solid granite base that provides stability, yet it is still lightweight enough to move around. Available from Hay

The Time Piece Special Edition table has a bold, sculptural presence. Fun yet serious, it comes in three different forms, each one making a memorable intervention into any space. The design explores the textural contrast between lacquer and polished wood veneer. The lacquered base is available in a wide range of colours, and the top is available in a choice of wood veneers.

Morning Glory

Morning Glory by Mark Thorpe takes its name from the flowering vine. The vines grow and wrap around each other reinforcing the structure of the plant. The pedals of the vine spread out become a canopy of surfaces to retain water. This organic architecture lends itself to the table designed for Moroso.
