USM has been creating this line of modern furniture in Switzerland since 1963 – long enough to be considered classic modern now. The colorful powder coated steel furniture can be customized to the user's needs. From storage towers and cabinets to credenzas and tables, the pieces are perfect for homes and offices – and of course the growing segment of those who live in their offices.
Dating back more than three hundred years, the drop-leaf table is a wonderful example of how the practical can also be beautiful. With a fixed center and hinged leaf of either side that can be dropped easily, these tables are a perfect addition to any room and any style--especially in smaller spaces. Some were designed as sofa tables, which are extra long. Others are gate-legs, which means the leaf is supported by legs that swing out from the center (like gates).

Q: I received this coffee table as well as a matching side table for free. You can't beat free; I'm just not crazy about them. I have a 4 year old so you can imagine having a glass top table isn't the brightest idea but I hate to get rid of them because that means finding something to replace them and I'm a keep-it-'til-it-falls-apart kinda girl. Any suggestions for redoing these tables?
I'll admit that I was a little late jumping onto the Etsy bandwagon. For me, the term "handmade" brings to mind crocheted toilet paper roll cozies and hot glued seashell frames. And while you will still find a wealth of, um, amateurish items on Etsy — many of which are curated for the aptly named Regretsy — Etsy remains the world's largest marketplace of goods crafted by both fledgling hobbyists and skilled artisans. Here is my pick of the best handcrafted items currently available for your home.
I've been transfixed by the living room in Andy & Andrew's Vintage Modern house tour all week. I'm completely in love with the look of this home! And while the couple have decorated their home with thrift store and flea market finds, presumably over a stretch of time and with a great deal of patience, I've rounded up a list of brand new products for achieving a similar look in a fraction of the time.
When living in a small space, it can feel like adding a coffee or side table would make it feel to crowded. Enter the clear acrylic table. It has all the benefits of being a place to set down your beverage but its transparent quality means it practically disappears!
