Coffee & Side Tables

New Collections

There is something deeply symbolic in the way we create our own sanctuary as an antidote to overstimulated modern-day living. Great pride and joy is derived from the attention we devote to creating a beautiful home styled to our individual taste. Although at its core, our homes are not a style but a story that transcribes our unique way of living and communicates without words, what we hold dear.

Frequently overlooked is the way we live with our humble coffee tables and side tables, not merely as a placeholder for a hot cup of tea but as a haven of activity. We gravitate towards furniture that is adaptable in various spaces as our needs change over time.  Franco, our founder and lead designer, explores the human relationship of living with coffee tables and side tables as he prepares to unveil his new small table collection called Piana and Tre. No matter the style or shape it seems intrinsic we use our coffee tables and side tables in a temporary transient way as makeshift places to eat, a resting place for treasured objects, or as an ad-hock homework desk.  While everyone’s way of living is individual to their unique needs, what we see time and again from human experience is the versatile nature of coffee tables and side tables.

Inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s ethos of less is more for all FrancoCrea collections, Franco has embarked on the creative journey of designing two new coffee table and side table collections within this philosophy.  Both collections are reflective of Franco’s minimalist yet detailed design language.

Tre Collection

With a deliberate design emphasis to be a natural complement to other collections in our range, Tre seamlessly integrates into a variety of spaces through its sculptural yet minimalist form. Subtle accentuations are expressed in Tre’s detailing making it the perfect accompaniment to hero pieces in a room without overpowering.

An ever-so-slight splay to the leg guides the eye toward the beautiful leg junction detailing. The humble chamfer carved around the coffee table and side table tops enhance the light, almost floating appearance of the solid wood table top. All these highly crafted details unify together to create something minimalist yet intrinsically beautiful to enjoy.

Piana Collection

The Piana outdoor coffee table and side table collection was born from the desire to create something truly unique and exclusive for outdoor living. Often overlooked, outdoor furniture should exude the same level of style as its indoor counterparts. Franco has designed Piana to have a stone-like appeal with zero silica nasties and a robust full outdoor materiality.

Piana’s design showcases Franco’s unique minimalist design language avoiding the ordinary and often frumpy outdoor options. Piana is crafted in a non-porous, UV-stable material, which means enjoying these pieces for your outdoor entertaining area is easy. Showing it’s versatility, Piana also makes for a wonderfully handy side table in bathrooms and wet areas.
