The T Table ($263) designed by Italian designer Patricia Urquiola for Kartell has a tactile embroidery-esque filigree top and is made of transparent batch-dyed plastic (Kartell's token material), which gives it a feminine-meets-techno look. Available in three heights and six colors, it can be cheerfully arranged in a group or used on its own. At that price, though, I won't be arranging many T Table groupings in my home. Fortunately, there's an equally fab alternative at a fraction of the price. To learn where you can pick it up,
The CB2 Aries Side Table ($39.95, reduced from $79.95) has a similar embroidery-esque filigree top, although its fancy scrollwork is handmade from iron rod and powdercoated in your choice of black or pink, not made from batch-dyed plastic. I think it's equally charming, and its sale price makes it all the more appealing!
