Hand-built in Providence, RI, Snappy Tables provide a simple solution to compact living spaces. Founder Dean Robinson crafts each petite table from bamboo, plastic or or maple Europly, adding a convenient handle to the lightweight frame for a portable, easy-to-pack piece of furniture. The handle also serves as the starting point for unfolding the clever table, which easily swings open and rests on its legs as its name suggests. The typically plain surface also offers up an array of ways to get creative with customized, bright and punchy graphics. Plus, there's something about the pared down silhouette that makes us think the style will endure as a new kind of classic.
We spotted the line at the New York Gift Fair, in advance of their upcoming release. The tables—which work well in a kid's playroom or as a side table in a small apartment—will sell for $200-300. See more information, including an animated step-by-step breakdown of how the easy piece works, and keep an eye on their widespread distribution by visiting the Snappy Tables website.
