Eras Coffee Table with Sliding Door by BDI
designed by Noah Packard
At A Glance:
The Eras Coffee Table has an unmistakable retro design, especially apparent in the way the legs rise up to the body. The Eras Coffee Table is about both form and function, featuring sliding doors on either side that reveal two full-depth compartments. Keep your stuff in view or hide it - it's up to you.
What's To Like:
The Eras Coffee Table's design tickles our design sensibilities. We love the legs that hint at a Danish influence, and the sliding doors really top it off. How many times have you wanted to keep reading material out but hated the resulting cluttered look? Now, you can have your cake and eat it too.
What's Not to Like:
While the Eras Coffee Table looks great and has wonderful, practical functionality, it's a bit pricey. Though, considering its quality and the price of some of the other tables out there, it's really not too bad.
The Bottom Line:
The Eras Coffee Table is a sleek, retro modern table, well-suited for anyone who wants to keep stuff out without always having it in plain view.
