This beautiful striped low table has a modern design and a colorful design that's both charming and classy.
These little space-saving accent tables nest together when you don't need them all, and still manage to look really cool no matter how you arrange them.
A decidedly funky sculptural piece, this magazine/book rack is typically available in four colors - blue, smoke, orange and transparent. Use it on the floor or on a tabletop!
This elegant lucite pedestal table comes in three different sizes, and would work in the center of the room as well as it would tucked into a corner.
This beautiful little transparent table has an iridescent finish that looks different based on the light and the room and your point of view.
This crystal clear plastic tray table (or acrylic bar cart, if that's what you want it for) is super portable. This little piece is lightweight, can be folded down, and the tray part has helpful handles.
This clear acrylic curved chair features a sleek and seamless silhouette. It has a white woven seat cushion for comfort, and would fit in perfectly with an acrylic desk.
With two shelves (including the top surface), this little table will give you plenty of storage space while playing nicely with your other decor.
Here's a twist on a tiny side table -- one with tiny stair-step ridges along the base, curved in a helix shape. It's art, yes, but it's handy, too.
This simple bench seat turns the typical bench shape around, and has open ends instead, making it a solid, unobtrusive and modernistic resting spot.
This contemporary transparent coffee table isn't just a stylish accent piece, it's super functional and durable - strong enough, in fact, to serve as a bench, too. (With its curved sides, there's even one other bonus: no sharp corners to accidentally hit your leg.) Unlike many other similar tables, this sweet piece is made in Florida from 3/4" thick crystal clear American lucite.
