Stylish and functional is the great combination offered by this Skipper coffee table from Benchmark.
It's a contemporary design, from the hands of Terence Conran no less, but would look good fitting in with a 1950s/60s style. That feel is enhanced by the combination of the oak table top and the powder coated steel storage rack underneath. Add to that the unusual shape and it looks like a pretty good furniture investment.
The table costs £745.
