Tracy Bulla -- Furniture Today, October 10, 2011
Occasional pieces come up winners this season with an emphasis on multiple function, overall versatility and distinctive designs.
Made from bent plywood with a real timber veneer, the curvaceous Bentwood side table flips on its side to provide a completely different table from Control Brand ($585).
Custom tiled in glossy handbaked porcelain, Couef's Kingston ottoman functions as a seat, side table or a foot stool with velvet top, pull-out tray and fleur-de-lis motif.
Finished in Java Café varnish, Christopher Guy's delicate set of nesting tables showcases triangular tabletops and signature X-style legs ($2,827).
A circular base makes for a statement piece in Howard Elliott's mirrored console, finished with mirror tile detail for added shimmer ($819).
