The Matchbox Table is at once playful and sophisticated. Perfect for the family home that doesn't want to seem overrun by children and their toys, it is a sleek and low coffee table that boasts a small section of chalkboard on one end. Like an open matchstick box, hence its name, the Matchbox Table has an underlying grown-up appeal while entertaining kids at the same time.

Designed by Tim Forrester of Timothy Ben Furniture, a studio based in the United Kingdom, the Matchbox Table merges modern elegance with playfulness. Although the wood end could easily be marked for adult use and the chalkboard for children, they could easily be used by both. In fact, grownups might like to doodle as well.
