As the name suggests, the TT40 table by Ilmari Tapiovaara was designed almost 70 years ago, but still impresses today.

1940 was the year, with Tapiovaara combining a top of birch plywood with a frame of solid birch to produce a side table that's both functional and eye-catching – especially if you love curves.

Today it's been reissued in almost exact detail, with a choice of finishes including the natural one above and a glossy black one. Both sell online for the same price, 820 Euros, which is around  £728.
