And here’s a perfect entry for the, “Why didn’t WE think of that?” files, the amazing Transforming Coffee Table by Duffy London. That translates to a guy named Christopher Duffy, a design graduate, who started creating stuff on his own out of his kitchen in England, back in 2002 and now enjoys international recognition for his smart designs that combine art and function with gravity principles and geometric design. You’ve just got to respect that, especially since most of you are still mystified by a mitre saw. A great looking coffee table, it transforms to a strong dining room table in two simple movements. That means it’s perfect for that dinky overpriced condo you were convinced to buy, or for any smaller space where you’d like the option of a dining table (or card table we say) without having it set up all the time. This is bespoke furniture, which is classy speak for “have it your way” so you can choose from walnut, ash, black, or light oak finishes, among others. Each is handmade by local artisans and crafts people using sustainable sourced wood and eco-friendly materials, so everybody is happy. It’s time to ditch the shaky Swedish Allen key furniture and invest in a cool piece that’s hand-built to impress.
