Whether you’re working, playing, creating, conversing or hosting dinner guests, you’ll find the Carafe Table designed by Charles Wilson is equally adept at enabling all these activities. A versatile table for urban living, Carafe provides an attractive and adaptable surface for working or entertaining, along with thoughtful storage features. It’s a new take on the traditional communal dining table.

When designing Carafe, Sydney, Australia-based designer Charles Wilson reflected on how he lives and works. “In my inner city apartment, the dining table is the most utilised piece of furniture. It’s the centre around which all activity revolves. During the week, it’s my workstation, a quiet place from which I look out to the harbour, reflect on my designs and perfect their production. At the weekend, it’s the gathering place for family and friends who drop in, kids in tow, everyone pitching in preparing food and mixing drinks.”

Inspired by traditional Vietnamese architecture, in particular the timber fishing huts that designer Charles Wilson saw while visiting South East Asia, the Carafe Table is tall and lean, as if perched on pylons. Its broad, faceted main drawer slides out from both sides of the table, making it perfect for storing work supplies or dining accoutrements. Cantilevered shelves at either end allow for additional storage. As Wilson notes, “A good dining table should be able to seamlessly segue from functional work top to elegant entertaining surface, and back again. It should look as good laden with documents or dinner as it does sparse or bare.”

Available in two versions, with perimeter shelf or with drawer.
