Floating Side Table

Darin Montgomery and Trey Jones are frequent collaborators for urbancase LLC, a Seattle based design firm. Their design philosophy is based on a desire to create well crafted objects that contribute to a simpler, pared back lifestyle focusing on basic aesthetic elements and functionality.

We started with the idea of designing a floating side table that could be installed at any height to accommodate various bed and sofa designs. In addition, we wanted a table that could be used in an entry or as a small jewelry/cosmetics table. The design criteria included restricted space, installation flexibility, economical use of material, durability, and of course, function.

As a general rule…we design from the inside out starting with a list of functions and possibilities. It was important to us that no cords run over the top, there be a material that won’t scratch as you’re fumbling with the clock or phone in the middle of the night, and you have a place to set a glass of water. We wanted several options as well. An interior shelf for a few books or magazines and for those who prefer to hide their porn…a drawer.
