With midcentury design gaining plenty of popularity in the last few years, it is inevitable that homeowners want a coffee table with a curvy top and slim wooden legs. These trademark features of midcentury modern coffee tables make them a sought-after acquisition and often one that is pretty expensive. But crafting a gorgeous midcentury style coffee table is a lot less expensive affair and even the most polished creations should not set your back by any more than $80-$100.
We now take a look at nesting tables that combine to form the ideal coffee table solution. Like this Set of 3 SAIC Paradox Nesting Tables from CB2, created for CB2 collaborative Design Collab. This piece was designed by School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) student Arianna Petrich and features three tables that can be pulled apart to form what appears to be a 3D cube (as shown below).
Yes, décor in wood is big in 2018 and this trend of gravitating towards natural materials is set to continue in the years to come. But a fabulous wood coffee table or even a live-edge coffee table might not fit into the decorating scheme of your living space. Those looking to still bring in textural contrast can turn to acrylic coffee tables or those with a polished marble top and a wiry, metallic base. It is all about the space available, colors that surround the coffee table and the style of the room itself.
