Cocktail Tables

Bamboo and Wenge Cocktail Table Set


I made this pair of tables this past spring for a couple right here in Keene, New Hampshire. Cool people. He runs a non-profit arts organization, and she does media relations. The majority of my clients live at some distance from my studio, mostly in larger metropolitan areas, but it’s nice to know that there are folks who appreciate progressive design just about anywhere.

The design of these tables is fun, modern, and very practical. They were designed as a pair, but can be used separately also. And if guests show up unexpectedly, you can sweep all the magazines and remote-controls (and dirty dishes?) into the cubby holes in the sides of the tables and push the two together… Voilà, clean room. Better living through design!

I am always looking for new projects, so if you like what you see, please contact me. I’d love to talk to you about your ideas. And if you know of anyone else who might be interested in stuff like this, please send him or her over to take a look. Thanks.
