1. The Bookpet

Designed to be a ‘coffee table’, Bookpet is a visually appealing coffee table that also makes great storage for your books and magazines. It presents a sculptural shape that evolves from a double-bent cuboid.

Why is it remarkable?

The cube-shaped form of the furniture allows for a sturdy table top at one end, which acts as the coffee table piece. Instead, the rest of the piece has been integrated with small slits and corners that fit your favorite books and magazines perfectly. The Bookpet has a compact and space-friendly size, making it ideal for tiny homes and modern apartments with limited space.

What we like

  • Compact + space-saving design
  • He looks like a sausage dog!

What we don’t like

  • There is no option to resize partitions to accommodate larger book sizes

2. Vertuska

Named after the Russian rotary dials, Vertushka puts a similar mechanism at the service of your coffee. An arm extends out and over the table, creating a safe location to place a drink away from anything else on the table.

Why is it remarkable?

Plus, it frees up space for more of your stuff instead of forcing yourself to clear an unobstructed space around your cup. That said, that’s not the only thing this coffee table can do. This “handle” can be rotated around the edge, giving you more freedom where to place your drink.

What we like

  • The design also includes a multi-angle lamp to shed more light on what you’re working on without taking up valuable table space

What we don’t like

  • the design does not accommodate different drink holders

3. Coffee table Donatas Žukauskas

There are certain materials, both natural and man-made, that seem to be associated with certain feelings and concepts. Water, for example, can be soothing and cleansing, while plastic is soft and flexible. Wood is hot and warm, while stone, in its many forms, is cold and impersonal. These last two may seem to stand at opposite ends, but they come together in a harmonious and perfectly artistic way in this sculptural coffee table made of natural wood and a new concrete-like material.

Why is it remarkable?

The shape of the table itself seems to convey this character of the combination of contrasting elements. The wide, irregularly shaped wooden top is supported by three tapered legs that end in very thin legs that seem to tempt fate. Its form has elements of stability and irregularity as if challenging the mind to decide whether the table is stable or about to collapse at one end.

What we like

  • Recycled materials were used to create this table

What we don’t like

  • The aesthetic is a bit eccentric and may not appeal to everyone

4. Nuño’s Coffee Table Studio

Studio Nuño has designed a new type of woodwork that reduces assembly time to just a few minutes while maintaining the structural strength to withstand the weight of everyday use.

Why is it remarkable?

Simply insert the legs into the slots under the table top, slide in a support piece and screw that piece in with an Allen key. The legs come in three or four different pieces for the side table and coffee table, respectively, so there are no confusing angles or combinations to worry about.

What we like

  • Made with 100% recycled and biodegradable materials

What we don’t like

  • The aesthetics are pretty simple

5. Wormhole Coffee Table

Wormholes can hypothetically connect two disparate points in spacetime through a tunnel. And they are quite often found in science fiction! And this fascinating coffee table by Olivier Gomis attempts to turn the hypothetical wormhole into a physical manifestation.

Why is it remarkable?

The shape of a table is impressive enough in itself. It is almost like a plank of wood that has been bent so that the two ends are on top of each other and then joined together with a double cone. They are then glued together with sheets of maple veneer in between, which give the appearance of those faint light lines which form the grid.

What we like

  • A lamp was placed in the center of the hole, giving the table an eerie appearance in the dark

What we don’t like

  • The downward curve means there is a chance of objects rolling in

6. Oceanids

Designed by Alexia Mintsoulis for the UK studio Alexa Mint, Oceanides is a collection of tables made of sea plants and marble. The innovative collection includes a square coffee table and two round coffee tables. One of the side tables has four legs, while the other has a solid base.

Why is it remarkable?

Peloponnesian Tortora marble was used to create the base and legs of the table, while the brown table tops were made using a marine plant that gives the table a natural pattern variation.’ The table top is from the sea plant Posidonia Oceanica, one of the oldest living organisms on Earth,” said Alex Mint. Until recently, the sea plant was discarded as waste, but now it has a new purpose.

What we like

  • Sustainable + eco-friendly design

What we don’t like

  • The tables seem more suitable for outdoors than indoors

7. The Dune Table

This beautiful center table is designed to make people feel at ease – with the help of loose sand. You don’t have to visit a beach or travel to a desert to enjoy the feeling of this, you can now do it in the comfort of your own home with the Dune table!

Why is it remarkable?

The Dune table’s name makes its inspiration clear, something that might not be immediately apparent just from its form. Unlike a gently sloping dune, the base of the table rises and falls almost randomly. This creates shapes, edges and angles that would not normally be possible with natural sand dunes. Together with its blue hue, however, it gives the table an almost mystical and otherworldly character that only adds to its relaxing outlook.

What we like

  • The tabletop also follows this amorphous pattern, forming an irregular shape rather than a typical circle or ellipse. It offers a perfect view of the artificial sand dune below, serving both functional and aesthetic tasks

What we don’t like

  • Without knowing the materials used, it’s hard to get a real feel for the item

8. The Circus Coffee Table

Like its name, the Circus coffee table is an interesting concept designed to bring people together in an active, interactive and chaotic way. Unlike conventional coffee tables, the circus coffee table is quite tall and can be used as a regular desk if needed.

Why is it remarkable?

The jumble of shapes and materials of the table is almost chaotic, like a circus. You have a mostly wooden table with metal fittings that add functionality to the table. The large circular hole in the middle turns the tray into a donut and reveals two triangular shapes that form the legs of the table. Instead of a solid cylindrical base, the table has metal bars and doors on opposite sides, creating further design contrasts.

What we like

  • Designed to be the center of attraction
  • It can also function as a regular office

What we don’t like

  • Some may not like the unconventionality of the design

9. The Cloth Coffee Table

The fabric coffee table features a curved bookcase that acts as the centerpiece of the table. The rather curvaceous personality of the table shows in all its massive boldness. The coffee table perfectly strikes a balance between boldness and elegance, beautifully incorporating soft and strong elements.

Why is it remarkable?

Doing minimalism before it’s cool, the Japanese and Scandinavians share many design principles in common, including a focus on warmth, earthiness and a subdued color scheme for an overall calming effect. Aiming to merge these principles to design Cloth, Teixeira hoped to find a “balance between boldness and elegance, depending on the angle”.

What we like

  • An artful blend of Japanese and Scandinavian design philosophy
  • The curved bookcase is a distinctive feature

What we don’t like

10. The REVERSE Coffee Table

The REVERSE coffee table is not just a coffee table, it also functions as a side table. You can reuse the same base and table top to switch between the two types of tables.

Why is it remarkable?

The only thing that changes is the middle support structure that determines how high the table can be. Simply reverse its orientation and you can either raise or lower the table, switching between its two functions. The one caveat is that the table height appears to be fixed in both cases, with no room for the table top to be raised or lowered slightly.

What we like

  • Doubles as a coffee table and side table

What we don’t like

  • Switching between the two modes can be complex and time-consuming
