The Knoll Showroom’s New Design

September 26, 2013

Popped into the Knoll showroom yesterday, and I have to say, it’s looking great. Lots of new additions and finishes to already existing brilliant pieces.

1. Florence Knoll low tables.

Beautiful low tables finished with a marble top. You have the option to pick either marble calacatta, nero marquinna, arabescato, verdi alpi, white or brown emperador. The range of different finishes allow these tables to match with any interior.

2. Tulip & Krusin tables

Most people assume that the classic table comes in the most seen finish, which is usually white base with a white laminate top or arabescato marble top. Most are unaware that the tulip table actually comes in a variety of different sizes, from small circular side tables to large oval dining tables. In addition, there are endless finishes available for these iconic tables. They also come in different types of woods, and all types of marbles from dark to light. The base can be white, platinum or black. Now, that means these tables can be used literally everywhere. They work well in the home and perfectly in commercial spaces (Westfield London has a few side tables in the entrance foyer). The image below shows a tulip side table with a black base and dark marble finish. Next to these round tulip tables are the Marc Krusin tables, beatifully designed with crossed bases, these are not your average coffee tables. They also come in a variety of different finishes and the top can also come in glass too, with a clear view of the beautifully shaped base below!

3. Laccio tables in a marble finish.

The laccio tables have been well known to come in their standard laminate finishes, with most opting to go for a white laminate bottom table and a black laminate smaller, table on top. Some people even go for the red laminate finish. We are pleased to say that now, the laccio tables also can be selected to come in marble finishes! It’s a fresh new look for the historically plain looking laccio table! The marble finish allows the tables to have a more elegant feel and they even look great with the combination marble + laminate together!

4. Florence Knoll Low Cabinets

The Florence Knoll low cabinets are the perfect addition to any office space. They come in a variety of different sizes from 6 box drawer versions to 4 drawer versions. They can be bought separately and put together, forming a combination of doors and drawer versions. The great thing about these low cabinets are the choices that come with them. Pick from natural oak, mahogany to pearwood for the wood or even white lacquer for the bottom and different types of marbles for the top. One can never have too much storage space!!

5. Platner side table

The platner collection is a very elegant collection consisting of a variety of lounge chairs, side chairs, side tables, coffee tables and dining tables with vertical steel wire rod bases welded to circular horizontal and edge-framing rods. They are extremely elegant yet funky at the same time. The tops come in marble or glass. Pictured below is the platner table with a bronze metallic base and a marble arabescato top.
