Hexagonal bone tile covers the Hexagon Mosaic Coffee Table from Jonathan Adler. One is fabulous, but why not purchase two and place them side by side for a display of tessellated fabulousness? Anthropologie’s Edda Side Tables can be purchased in multiples and arranged in coffee table formation. Whether you snag two, three or four, their mango wood and iron construction is a thing of beauty!
