The piece: The Helix Table by Chris Hardy for DWR
The price: From $2,200
Why we want it: Up-and-coming industrial designer Chris Hardy's collection of modern tables for DWR hits the design sweet spot; simple, beautiful, useful, and totally original. If that weren't enough, The Helix checks off almost everything on our furniture checklist; it's made with American-sourced materials, it offers up choice by way of three (!) glass top shapes, and it doesn't require any tools for assembly — the idea being that anyone can put it together with their hands! "In my design work, I aim to develop pieces that can be connected with on an emotional level," says Hardy. Happy to tell you that you nailed it on an emotional level, a practical level, AND an aesthetic one, Chris Hardy. We're sold.
