Look of the Week: Slim End Tables

By Michelle Ecker on October 6th, 2015

From end tables to throw pillows to paint samples and more, tune in to the design blog every Tuesday afternoon to check out our choice for NYIAD’s featured look of the week.

This week’s favorite comes to us from Room & Board.

Look of the Week: Slim End Tables

If you’ve been staying current with shifts in home decor trends, you’ve likely noticed a recent upswing in crisp, minimalist design.

Inspired by post World War II western art, minimalist style embodies the principles of simplicity and ease, eliminating clutter and unnecessary elements in order to create a functional yet orderly home environment.

For many aspiring designers, mastering the art of minimalism can be an extremely practical endeavor, as this technique proves especially useful when accommodating, say, a midtown Manhattan client with a studio apartment (and limited space).

This week’s #LOTWDesign exemplifies the philosophies of this fresh functionality via Room & Board’s Slim End Tables.

A Room & Board classic, The Slim offers a distinctly unique balance of refinement and strength to any interior design. Manufactured in Minnesota, the powder-coated natural steel gives weight to a seemingly delicate, handcrafted piece while subtle weld marks add character to each table.

Available in a variety of colors, this easy addition could serve as great accent in an assortment of room designs- a boxy orange end table adding playful excitement to a child’s room, or a round, golden coffee table adding edgy glamour to an otherwise modest living room.
