This well designed coffee table from Camerich has all the clean lines and sleek finish so often desired from modern furniture, but there’s a secret inside.
The two ends of the coffee table slide open to reveal a hidden compartment, so you can hide away all your clutter and keep the surface of the table looking impeccably tidy. Brilliant for when people are coming round unexpectedly, and you need somewhere to hide your mess in a hurry!
The Fun table is made from black walnut and is available from Camerich. It’s usually priced at £1605, but is currently available for a reduced price of £1123.50.

Beer keg light up table
Who knew an old beer keg could become such a great table?
This stainless steel beer keg has been reclaimed and upcycled to produce a fresh new piece of furniture.
The keg has been fitted with 6mm of toughened glass on the top, to produce a sturdy table top. Inside the keg, 24v low voltage LED lights have been fitted, which light up the inside. So not only do you get a funky drinks table, but also one that lights up!
The silver beer keg table has been designed and created by ReUpCycled and is available from their store on Not On The High Street for £249.
A black beer keg table is also available, plus some other unique products.

Cityscape coffee table
This contemporary style cityscape coffee table is not only oozing with great design, but it has some clever storage solutions built into the stylish base.
The base of the table is made from solid walnut and features a design reminiscent of a city skyline, with small office block buildings and tall skyscrapers nestling together. The table is created by Xor Designs, with each one individually made to order.
The top of the table is made from thick perspex, which enables the base design to be easily seen.
Clear perspex coffee table
It’s within the base, and the skyscrapers, that the storage solutions can be found. There are well constructed spaces that work as a magazine rack, the perfect sized sections to hold your TV remote controls and other little hidden nooks and crannies.
Magazine and remote control storage
It’s a clever coffee table design and, being made of solid wood, should be a long-lasting and functional piece of furniture.
The cityscape coffee table can be ordered from the Xor Designs store on Bouf.

Giant cork table
Partial to a glass of champagne?
Here’s a different way of having more champagne in your life, in the form of a champagne cork side table!
The table is handmade from top quality natural Portuguese cork. It’s shaped like a cork you’d pop out of a bottle of a bubbly, only in a rather more giant size.
The top of the table is flat, so you can safely use it as a functional table for drinks, plates or even to stand a lamp on.
The champagne cork side table costs £110 (usually £120) from Impulse Purchase.
If you like the giant cork idea, then they also do a matching champagne cork stool or a Bordeaux wine cork stool.

Designer side table
We’ve been on the lookout for a stylish and practical side or occasional table recently, but some of the options available are frankly rather underwhelming. Then we found the glycine side table, which is most definitely not underwhelming and ideally suited to a contemporary home.
Designed and made in France by Drugeot Labo, the angular design of the glycine side table gives it a distinctive and contemporary look.
The table is made from oak and the space under the top provides a useful area where magazines or books can be stored (just slot them in). There’s also a small drawer included and room on top to display favourite home accessories, stand a lamp or keep free for occasional needs.
As well as being functional for use in a living room or hallway, the table would also make a great bedside table.
The glycine oak side table is new in at Heal’s and costs £495.

Decorative occasional table
The Kartell designs are always striking, but one of the pieces we’re particularly fond of is the T table.

The table is available in three heights, which work well used together, plus a variety of colour choices.
The Found Home Store have all three sizes available and the T-Table is priced from £149.

Walnut finish dining table
When you’ve got limited space in your kitchen or dining room, furniture that doesn’t take up too much room is crucial.
It’s often hard to find stylish dining furniture that’s compact, but this Orbit dining table and chair set ticks all the boxes.
The modern circular table is nicely designed so that each of the four chairs fits perfectly around it when not in use. The chairs are upholstered in brown faux leather and the table has a walnut finish. All the pieces are finished off with stainless steel chrome effect legs.
The Orbit dining table set is available from Dwell, where new stock is due in any day.
If the walnut brown doesn’t do it for you, it’s also available in a sleek and minimal white.

If playful and creative are essential requirements in table design for you, then this clouds coffee table set by designer Mark Hark ticks all the boxes.
The unique coffee table set comes with three cloud design layers which you can put together to form a multi-dimensional cloudscape design. It’s fully functional as a table, but also makes a stunning feature in a room.
For those times when you need several small tables instead of one big one, the large cloud formation can be separated, so that you’ve got three individual tables to use.
The clouds coffee table set is available in white lacquered oak veneer, as well as walnut veneer (brown or black). The white tables are currently reduced from £339 down to £189 (including VAT) from Fashion 4 Home.
