Collecting things is one of the basic human conditions, and flaunting them is one of the known joys. In a small space, however, doing so could be tricky. Display furniture often costs a lot in square footage and provides little function. Unless it can perform other roles. This collector’s table from the New York-based architect John Berg is a great example. A walnut frame supports two sheets of glass; the collector’s treasures float in between. The top sheet of glass slides from side to side to allow for object placement. The shape of the piece has a slight retro flair, which makes this clever table a display-worthy item by itself.
