How Side, End and Coffee Tables Bring a Room Into Balance

Just like in your personal life, the elements in a room need to be in balance and harmony with one another.  The benefit is the room has a reason for being, while you want to spend time there.

Some of the most important pieces for achieving this harmony are tables.  Let me show you some extraordinary hand-made side, end and coffee tables. While each is a piece of art, they also serve the purpose of bringing a room into balance.

This table is clearly elegant and I love its organic feel.  It is perfect for someone who wants to bring out the best in organic design.

This table has a very traditional carving profile, but through a change in the scale of the carving and a high gloss finish, it will balance well in a contemporary setting.

I like the clean lines of this table with the Greek key at the base of the legs. This would look great with contemporary geometric carpeting, which is so prevalent in design today.

This table would look spectacular in a contemporary black and white setting. The beveled, mirrored edge detail on the table would sparkle like jewelry.

This table would be terrific in a Library for stacking half read books, or as a nightstand because of the drawer on top. The classic “X” design allows this to be placed in a transitional or traditional setting.

Quadrus Studio

I love this table because it looks like sculpture, and is one of the most functional tables you would want in a room.

Shagreen is timeless, elegant, and is completely at home in a modern or traditional setting.

Silhouette Furniture

The Art Deco influence of this table would look perfect in a contemporary setting. I like the two tiers so that you can stack magazines or books on the lower shelf.

I like the combination of the crystal with the wood. The hand blown, turned glass pedestal creates a contemporary look.

Arca Horn

I like the clean lines and the combination of the lacquer finish with bone inset in the center, expressing great detail.

This table is a perfect example of Yin and Yang; so simple, yet so complex. I love the clean lines of this table with the unique mix of walnut, ebony accents and woven rope. This would look incredible in a renovated barn.

Do you think tables are important to achieving harmony in a room?  If you are still thinking, here are some rooms I have designed to be in balance.
