What's new in tables? You want something good looking, serviceable, and easy on the budget? Have you considered a paper table? The new versions are a far cry from the earlier experimental ones.
They're made of very heavy paperboard and can be folded or taken apart with little effort. But when assembled these are sturdy enough to hold a lamp, books , or even tea for two!
You'll find round ones, square ones, octagonal and oblong shapes, and many are finished to look like various wood grains. You can cover the table with a floor length cloth, if you want complete camouflage, but chances are you'll like it just as it is.
