In the store: Aalto, Eames and Anybody's Guess

We've added some great tables to our inventory recently, some that have history and some that are a mystery. First are a pair of fan-legged bentwood tables by Alvar Aalto for Artek. Their beautiful detail is somewhat different from the simplicity most of us expect from the designer.

More great tables in the store are the two Eames LTR (Low Table Rod). They're as angular and spare as the Aalto tables are curvy, offering a different take on modern design.

Finally, we have an unmarked Danish table in rosewood, so who the designer is for this piece is anybody's guess right now. If you know, fill us in. Still, it has great legs and sleek styling, and I'm quite taken with it.  My coffee table has begun to take a bit of a beating from active grandsons, and this might be a suitable replacement, as it's very similar to the one I have.

  1. Love those Eames LTR tables! :) The rosewood coffee table is a beauty, too.

    1. I love the Eames tables too, but I can't quit looking at the rosewood coffee table.

  2. I'll take the Eames tables, please. :)

    1. Aren't they great? Those bases are so fantastic!
