Liven up your living spaces with the creative coffee tables signed by Francesc Rifé for KENDO

Small furniture, as coffee tables are, are not aimed at driving the design of lounge spaces, but more often than not  they can turn into the focal point of a nice evening with friends or at least be an attractive complement to surrounding furniture. Whatever the use, KENDO has some designer proposals to suit your needs and fill your living spaces with style. Check it out…

Create a focal point with the VAN coffee tables, a creation by Francesc Rifé for KENDO

As a specialist in contemporary and designer occasional furniture, over the years KENDO has been extending its ranges of coffee tables in order to catch up with trends and different needs.  The offer in materials, shapes and finishes is therefore so wide that there is a coffee table for any conceivable taste. From the light, small tables for informal, young ambiences to the elegant modular pieces with built-in storage, KENDO’s coffee tables have been designed to be the ideal functional team player in contemporary living or sitting rooms.

Take the latest stylish design of Francesc Rifé for the brand. NUC, which was unveiled in Milan this year, is a collection of practical coffee tables made of solid walnut or oak wood.

The structure is completed by a transparent glass top (15mm) and a base that can be chosen in veneered MDF or in transparent glass for a more visual light look.

Edges are joined in a very original way simulating the way knots are tied together.

Round-shaped with legs in solid walnut or beech wood, the VAN coffee tables offer a fine choice of marble and ceramic tops that are perfect to natural and easy living atmospheres.

They come in four sizes and three heights so that you can put together two or three of them in different finishes to create stylish corners in your interior projects.

If you are in need of great personalization for the central room area of your living space, then DAB is for you. Highly versatile and functional, DAB is a modular programme that allows different combinations of containers, materials and sizes.

You can go for containers with or without drawers, with marble or smoked grey glass tops, or with an attractive juxtaposition of different top finishes.

Add a cushion and you’ll soon have an extra seat!

All designs are perfectly suitable for home and contract use. The range of finishes is quite wide but clients can request other lacquer colours referenced according to RAL and NCS cards. Pieces can also be customized to meet the specifications of clients and interior designers.
