Gimme Five! Coffee tables

selection of 5 coffee tables

We had a new competition start this morning with a prize of a rather elegant, limited-edition coffee table. We thought we’d feature a few more versions of coffee tables available on the web.

There probably aren’t that many homes out there that don’t have at least one coffee table; it’s such a versatile piece of furniture. Use it to serve coffee, by all means – but it can also double (quadruple?) up as a bedside table, stool or footrest.

We were particularly tickled by the pizza box table/stool from Firebox. It would fit perfectly in a teenager’s or student’s bedroom!

  1. Mocha Modern Triangle coffee table – oiled oak: £169, Funique
  2. Incredible cardboard stool: £19.99, Firebox
  3. Fergus coffee table: £229, Swoon Editions
  4. Rattan table: £275, Cox & Cox
  5. Muuto Around small coffee table: £275, Occa Home

Limited edition Arcade table designed by Sam Baron for Just99 | H is for Home We have an absolutely gorgeous competition prize for you this month – it’s just too bad we can’t enter ourselves! 😉

Limited edition Arcade table designed by Sam Baron for Just99 | H is for Home Just99 has agreed to ‘furnish’ us with one of these beautiful, limited-edition Arcade tables to give away to one of our readers.

Limited edition Arcade table designed by Sam Baron for Just99 | H is for Home The Arcade was designed by Sam Baron exclusively for Just99 and retails at €189. The company, launched in the UK this February, hosts a selection of beautiful art work and interiors pieces for the home, created exclusively for them by international architects, designers, photographers and artists.

As their name suggests, only 99 units of an item are produced. Almost every week, a new product or edition is added to their website and, after all 99 are sold, that’s it – they’ll no longer be available, thus creating a ‘buzz’ and sense of desirability. If you’d like to the proud, new owner of one of these limited-edition Arcade tables, just tell us what room in your house the Arcade table would live.

Gimme Five! Bookshelves

selection of modern bookshelves

We’re in desperate need of some new bookshelves. We’re great hoarders of magazines – we keep them for inspiration and for cutting up and using on moodboards.

Our ever-growing collection of lovely interiors and cookery books is dotted all around the house. We have them in almost every room; stacked up high in piles on the floor, on tables and on each side of the bed.

The recessed floating shelves in our sitting room are mainly given over to displaying our collection of vintage pottery and enamelware. Even this is interspersed with little stacks of books here & there! We like free-standing shelves as we’re always rearranging the furniture to give new purchases a temporary or sometimes permanent home!

We like modern, sculptural, minimalist but striking bookshelves that look like works of art in their own right. The Ptolomeo bookcase is great because it makes use of often under-utilised vertical space. Our favourite though, is the bright yellow SD2.o; unusual, asymmetric and with a sense of fun!

  1. Vitra ESU shelf 4OH By Charles and Ray Eames: £2,108, Heal’s
  2. SD2.0 Shelves limited edition Factory Yellow by Andy Murray Design: £350, Bouf
  3. Loki 5-shelf bookcase: £195, Habitat
  4. Polygon shelving unit, walnut: £299, MADE
  5. Ptolomeo bookcase by Bruno Rainaldi: £1,095, The Conran Shop
