The Foundation Side Tables may look rather simple and traditional, but that is the beauty of these two pieces. Although they do have a minimalist aesthetic, they are far from traditional. Instead, their subtle quirks give new life to side tables as we know them.

Created by American design studio Fort Standard, the Foundation Side Tables are made out of teak wood and marble slabs. Clean and concise, the marble base really gives these two tables a unique look that is at once sophisticated and artsy.

Apart from the look these materials give the Foundation Side Tables, they interact with each other in order to make functional pieces of furniture. To have one without the other would create an off-kilter design that is impractical and unusable.
