The company makes chairs, desks, tables, lighting fixtures, storage options, beds, and every other type of home and office furnishing you can think of. Even better, they make it all at a great price without sacrificing anything in the way of looks, durability, or craftsmanship. They're an emerging power in the modern and contemporary American Furniture market, and Smart Furniture is excited to offer their products to our customers through our online store. Buy your own amazing Blue Dot furniture today!<br /><br />Since their inception, Blu Dot has had a fun and fascinating aesthetic. When you see one of their products, you can often recognize it immediately as one of their designs. They believe in modern looks, crisp clean lines, solid colors, and beautiful construction. Everything they make comes from the contemporary, fresh perspectives of their designers, and the furniture they're making is really turning heads in the design community. <br /><br />Smart Furniture has partnered with Blu Dot for the last several years in yet another attempt to bring great ideas, great designs, and great furniture to our customers online. Blu Dot furniture is some of the best around; it's modern, it's comfortable, and it's very affordable. We're proud to partner with them for many reasons, but none bigger than those three. They believe in the same things we do, and they make amazing furniture for the contemporary home and office. They're relatively new, having been founded just 13 years ago, but in a little over a decade they've made a profound and lasting impression on the modern American furniture market. Whether you're looking for tables, desks, chairs, lighting, storage, or any other kind of home, office and public space furniture, you can find what you're looking for in the catalogue of Blu Dot furniture.<br /><br />Blu Dot was a business born of necessity, just like ours here at Smart Furniture. We first opened our doors because we wanted to give customers access to the products they were buying; we wanted them to have a say in the design of their own furniture, aka, design on demand. Blu Dot furniture has a similar philosophy, and they're focused on excellence and affordability. All of the furniture they make comes from the same original, inspiring idea, the idea that started the company; beautiful furniture, and beautiful design, should be attainable. It's that simple, and that revolutionary. <br /><br />The company was founded by three college friends who were freshly graduated and ready to move into new homes and apartments. In college they had all bonded over their mutual interests in design, architecture and artwork. When they were ready to start their own homes, naturally they wanted to outfit them in a way that reflected their ideas, their tastes and their advanced notions about design and personal space. But there was a problem; they couldn't afford the great furniture they loved, and they didn't like the low-quality or big-box furniture that they could afford. For many customers, this is a very familiar dilemma. But the three friends decided to do something about it. They decided if there was no supplier for their fairly common demands, then they would have to make the furniture themselves. And that's how they came to form Blu Dot. <br /><br />In the years since the company was founded, in 1997, the three friends, John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks, have gone on to create some of the most comfortable, innovative, and beautiful modern furniture on the contemporary American scene. Blu Dot furniture is just as lovely and well designed as any other modern furniture maker, and the business has stayed true to it's initial imperative; to keep the furniture amazing and the prices low. They created elegant desks, funky chairs and seating options, cool lighting systems and decor. And to top it all off, they made it affordable. That solved the problem they'd had right after college, when their taste level was much higher than their income level. Business born of necessity; just like Smart Furniture. <br /><br />Blu Dot has mastered the art of making affordable furniture that never looks cheap and that can boast levels of craftsmanship and aesthetic excellence measuring up the standards of any furniture maker in the business. Like Smart Furniture pieces, Blu Dot furniture is heavy on quality and low on cost. It's a business and a whole system of furniture that believes in democratic design, and in serving the customer first and foremost. Beautiful design shouldn't be the sole province of museums and high income Americans, it should be available to everyone at a reasonable price. Blu Dot furniture believes that, and so do we at Smart Furniture; that's why we make such great partners, and that's why we're so happy to bring you the whole roster of amazing Blu Dot furniture online.</span>

Minimalista Console Table
by Blu Dot

Minimalista Console Table At A Glance:
Minimalist furniture lovers: this is your Citizen Kane, your Grapes of Wrath, your Starry Night, your Walking Through the Woods on a Snowy Evening. The Minimalista is the essence of "table" - no more, no less. This pared down console table is offered in walnut, graphite-on-oak, or honed stone with stainless steel gently supporting your choice of top.

What's To Like:
What will you ever do with all that free space? You know, the space created by the Minimalista Console Table's tantalizingly thin silhouette and line-drawing base? It's a visual treat, and will allow complete focus to be placed on whatever it is you want to draw attention to in the room (or even under this space-breathing console table).

What's Not to Like:
We haven't tried it ourselves, but we'd hazard a guess that if your Uncle Joe (you know, the ex-football player) were to lean on one corner of the console, the frame probably wouldn't like that kind of heavy sideways pressure. Just guessing. The top is plenty sturdy for downward pressure, though, with a central steel support brace underneath.

The Bottom Line:
As minimalist furniture goes, the Minimalista Console Table lives up to its name. It's well-made and leaves plenty of room for your life to fill in the blanks around it.

Features:

  • Overall dimensions: 29" h x 52" w x 15.5"
  • Central brace underneath top for stability and strength
  • Choose from honed stone or wood veneer over MDF for the top
  • Stainless steel base

Materials & Measurements

    Comments about Blu Dot Minimalista Console Table:

    I purchased the white marble console. It is a quality, beautiful piece of furniture. Easy to assemble. My only issue is that although it has a piece in the back to keep it from wobbling, it still has some give front to back. Might not be ideal behind the sofa as I wanted to use it, but it would be perfect as an entry console, or against a wall. A+ for Smart Furniture customer service.

      Despite a flat/damaged tiny screw that I´ve replaced at home and a corner steel internal guide needing to be lowered & fix properly by my own, arrival to final destination (Caracas) was fine and a great experience since assembly was easy & fast and quality product was fine. Definetly it was a"best value for money" and we´re safisfied!
