Modern Brass And Acrylic Coffee Table2. Modern Brass And Acrylic Coffee Table Made by Kevin Foley of Gearhead Originals LLC, Murphy, TX

Acrylic is the perfect material for a cocktail table — its durable, timeless, and neutral. Paired with polished brass, this cocktail table will add a glamorous touch to any space, transitional or modern. Brass has definitely made a comeback and is here to stay.

Wave Credenza3. Wave Credenza Made by Benjamin Rosenberg of Modernist Woodworking and Furniture, Asheville, NC

The intricate “wave” pattern on the doors is what makes this credenza one of a kind. Strips of walnut and maple are applied to create a contemporary design that mimics a stereo equalizer. This credenza would be a great storage solution for any living room, dining room, or bedroom. It’s playful while still being sophisticated.

Walnut And Stainless Steel Table4. Walnut And Stainless Steel Table Made by Kevin Foley, Gearhead Originals LLC

The steel peeking through the walnut slab top makes this table — it’s unexpected and yet seamless. The two elements complement each other perfectly — warm and cool, natural and man-made — they live together in this table harmoniously.
