The Madra Side Table in Inanimate, Ever-Attentive and at Your Disposal

The Madra Side Table cannot run out to your front porch to collect the morning newspaper, but it can keep tabs on it for you and make it available next to your favorite armchair. The bold, red object can collect a number of reading materials and even keep a comforting beverage within your easy reach.

Trevor Vaugh's design comprises a clever wire frame with four legs and an elongated spine that together assume a spindly silhouette that resembles a dog. A tiny tail has been incorporated for this purely aesthetic purpose and a neck and head make the body complete and recognizable as a canine. The Madra Magazine Rack's noggin is a flat piece of steel that's broad enough to accommodate a single teacup or mug.
