Compact urban living of today means adaptable furniture has never been more valuable. Living Edge has the perfect solution in the Carafe table – a striking design by Sydney-based Charles Wilson that effortlessly transforms from a work desk to a dining table to meet the shifting needs of inner-city dwellers. Sydney-based designer Wilson teamed up with iconic furniture company Herman Miller to create the Carafe table. This streamlined, graphic table is a fitting addition to Living Edge’s carefully curated range of authentic designs.

The Carafe table, which takes its name from the communal vessel used for sharing beverages, provides an attractive and adaptable work/entertaining surface with subtle storage options. The Carafe table is designed to contain a multitude of household essentials in its hidden drawers. Cables or cutlery can be stored in the broad faceted drawers that slide out from either side. Cantilevered shelves each end allow for additional stowing of paperwork or linen, while discreet, carved slots in drawer bases allow easy cable connection.

Wilson’s award-winning designs are noted for their use of natural materials and are often rustic in nature. This inspiration may be attributed to the many years he spent growing up on a wheat and cattle farm in Central West NSW. Wilson’s inner-city life of today is a clear reference for the beautiful Carafe table. “A good dining table should be able to seamlessly segue from functional work top to elegant entertaining surface, and back again. It should look as good laden with documents or dinner as it does sparse or bare,” he says.

    How about including the prices for some of this stuff. Also, if this isn’t heresy, how about a alternative to the more expensive ‘name’ brand item. Would be a nice part of your publication to present alternatives. In my mind it would move your readers closer to what you are presenting.
