If we think about it, the coffee table is definitely one of the most versatile pieces we can have at home. Aside from using it to hold our books, accessories, and decor, there are tables with secret compartments meant to be used as storage, too. To help you choose a table you can invest in, here are 10 noteworthy picks by interior designers Cynthia and Ivy Almario you can consider:

1. Anemos by Cappellini

Designed by Antonio Facco, this monolithic table opens up to reveal four retractable seats with curved padded frames. We love the hybrid and the idea of multi-function furniture.

Studio Dimensione, One Parkade, Bonifacio Global City, 856-6756

 

2. Sullivan by Minotti

This nesting table designed by Rodolfo Dordoni is a perfect pairing of two geometric shapes. We love the triangle table with the round black and white graphic ottoman. So chic and versatile.

3. Area by B&B Italia

There is a play of function and texture when we put two area tables side by side. We get two ottomans and a lot of versatility in this new set up. So hip!

4. D.555.1 by Molteni &C

This geometric table from design great Gio Ponti doubles as a sculptural piece. We are tempted not to put anything on the top of the table so the colorful grid is the main attraction.

5. Tribeca by Poliform

We love this modern-minded classic table from one of our favorite designers, Jean-Marie Massaud.

219 Nicanor Garcia Street, Bel-Air 2, Makati; 804-2776

6. Jacob by Minotti

Both of us adore the shape: It is very organic and allows another table to nest. It comes in different finishes, and our top picks are the Calacatta marble and Sucupira veneer.

7. Panna Cotta by Molteni & C

This table is chic and streamlined yet practical. The bottom shelf is great for magazines and the proportions are just perfect.

8. Nix by B&B Italia

This round table with three C tables is so versatile. It can expand and be used independently. We love that it comes in black and white. A multi-tasking table at its best.

9. Mondrian by Poliform

Another table we love from Jean-Marie Massaud, this one is sleek, sculptured, and stunning. Perfect for any living space.

Poliform, 219 Nicanor Garcia Street, Bel-Air 2, Makati City; 804-2776

10. Montana by OMO Furniture

A thick slab of Dao wood with all its grain exposed is set on top of chrome legs, designed by Milo Naval. What a treat for all wood lovers!
