RL Picks: Tables for the New Year

Whether you live in a modern studio unit or a classic family home, there's a table that's right for your space


You can make a statement with the furniture that you have. Interior designer Vera Villarosa shares, "“I think the best coffee table is one that does not fade into the background. It should say something, just like all the other pieces in your living room.”

Picks by Paula de Guzman, Dagny Madamba, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Kurt Alvarez/ACME Visual Productions, Vincent Cosolluela, and Paolo Feliciano.
