New York never ceases to amaze me, especially when it comes to the fabulous furniture I can find there. Center 44, for instance, is a brilliantly curated antique shop with some truly one-of-a-kind pieces. Their online selection isn’t half-bad, either – just take a look at these unique and stunning coffee tables! Examples like this are what turn a typically forgotten piece of furniture into something to be remembered and admired!
I adore the angular design of this piece; it has so much movement for something so solid. Turns out it’s a piece by Louis Sognot, a mid-century French designer. Should have known, only the French would design something this classy.
And this 1970s Paul Evans “Cityscape” coffee table is so reminiscent of the era it comes from, with its gold and chrome patchwork base. It kind of reminds me of a disco outfit Diana Ross might have worn, and I mean that in the best possible way. It’s sleek and timeless while still being a bit glam and flashy, just like Diana!
I know you might not believe me, but this 1960s scrolled beauty by Karl Springer is made of lacquered goatskin! What a sleek, mod design, and the creamy texture of the finish is gorgeous!
And on an entirely different note, this solid walnut piece was made in Italy in the 1950. Its shiny texture and smooth shape would work in almost any room – and the richness of the walnut is to die for.
And finally, this set of 1960s faux tortoise hexagonal tables is adorable and classy all at the same time. They are a bit art deco, but still feel contemporary. And that’s what I love about antiques; they have so much character and bring a unique bit of history into any room. Don’t be afraid to shop around for your own special treasure!
