I look at furniture all day long, so it's rare when one piece brings me to a standstill. The Seward Handmade Table ($899) from Black Elm Woodworking did just that. This unique design, with its increased slat length towards the center of the table, is a clever update of the classic George Nelson design, and, in my opinion, an improvement. At 18 inches tall and three feet long, it's the perfect size for a small coffee table or accent table. Handmade from walnut and cherry, it's a striking, solid table that is a great investment piece.
