    Default recommendations for coffee tables?

    I've been trying to find a nice coffee table for our Orion apartment--something modern, but compact, and all glass would be great, does anyone have recommendations for furniture stores? (other than Bo Concepts..)
    Thanks!

    Check out "Room & Board" in SoHo

    They are fairly well priced and have a number of different "make you own" tables (various bases / tops) including glass. Also lots of other terrific furniture.

    I got a nice side table (metal base / wood top) there about 1 year ago and have been very happy with it.

    Very little furniture is kept on site, so there are delivery charges.

    I agree with Lofter. I checked out West Elm, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Bo Concepts and ended up at Room and Board. I got some very nice chairs there. Lots of nice items, all reasonably priced.

    If the item is in stock, delivery can be made within a week or so. Custom made stuff takes 6-8 weeks.

    Default furniture

    Lofter 1,

    You are once again, a source of most valuable information. We, the Orion residents owed you big time. I will definitely check out the " Room & Board " since I have also been to all the places that Xenos962 been.

    thanks again

    R&B is a great source for well-designed and fairly-priced furniture, but the Soho store displays very little of what it actually offers. Look at the catalogue and web site for the complete collection. If you're going to visit the store, a quick side-trip to Crate and Barrel (at B'way and Houston) may yield a few surprises -- it doesn't have R&B's depth, but some of its furniture is actually quite ok.

    While in SoHo check out Todd Oldman on Wooster near Broome -- quirky stuff.

    AERO on Broome just west of Crosby is fantastic -- although a bit pricey there are some good deals (very interesting lighting) and it gives you a good idea of what can work if you can find comparables elsewhere at a better price.

    Hmmmm ... maybe I've found an alternate career???

    Smile yes , you should

    Lofter 1,

    I think your source of info is invaluable. Isn't that what those " consultants " charged you bug bucks just to tell you where and what and how ??
    We are so lucky you are FREE but maybe we can treat you to our free hot breakfast.

    Default you are a blast

    Lofter 1,

    You are priceless. You made me laugh reading your post of the Starship Disco. I wish I had a chance to visit the disco, it sounds lots of clean fun. Now, trying to furnish the apartment at The Orion is fun but tiring too.

    Someday someone will accuse the Orion of destroying that historic landmark and we will be forced to boogie in public to atone for our sins of living on sacred disco land.
