4 cutting-edge products made by designers and architects

Designers and architects by day, hands-on artisans by night—these creative principals are driven to make furniture and décor in their spare time. Fusing cutting-edge structure with simplicity, the following products reveal their love of creating. 

Doubling as a foyer centerpiece or a cozy dining spot for four, the TOPANGA ROUND DINING TABLE is the brainchild of interior design firm Barclay Butera. Constructed of hickory veneer, the table is a light and bright eye-catcher touting an hourglass silhouette, metal detailing and a waterfall-style base. 54”, $2,499.
