For a timelessly modern look, the janEven tea table is angular. Depending on the desired size, there are small, square side tables and larger coffee tables in a rectangular / square design. You will find the following series in the janEven range:
Large, Angular Coffee Table
The large, rectangular and square tea tables by janEven are available in different designs, that vary in the size of their tabletop as well as in their metal legs. Choose a living room table with classily brushed stainless steel runners (45 cm in height) or ultra-thin hairpin legs in matt black (43 cm tall). The following table series with Bauhaus charm are available in white, grey and anthracite:
Small Tea Table » Square Side Table
The small tea table / side table by janEven is called CoasLine. Available in the size 50 x 50 cm as well as 65 x 65 cm, the Nordic-inspired living room table is square shaped and equipped with graceful, black hairpin legs. All sofa side tables with hairpin legs by janEven have a height of 43 cm. This makes them ideal for use as a nightstand in the bedroom or as a decorative table in your hallway. For a perfect colour match with your couch or your other living room furniture, you can buy the small designer table in white, grey and anthracite:
Material of the Tea Tables
When choosing the materials for his tea table series, the German-Scandinavian designer had three priorities: Premium quality, a beautiful appearance and environmentally sensitive materials. To achieve the unique design of his tables, a special, high-quality material mix of different types of wood was chosen, which is carefully processed during the production of the tea tables.
Wafer-Thin Tabletop Made of Premium HPL Wood Material
For a Tea Table in White, Grey & Anthracite
As indicated above, when creating his tables, the German-Norwegian designer was looking for a material from which a wafer-thin, robust tabletop could be constructed. Furthermore, it was important to him to focus on renewable wood materials so that his tea table could be produced in the most environmentally friendly way possible. In the end, he drew inspiration from the construction of high-quality building façades. HPL (High Pressure Laminate) wood is increasingly used in this field because it is durable, weather-resistant and can be flexibly coloured. The designer wanted to use these advantages for his sofa side tables, which is why the top of each coffee / tea table consists of a thin layer of HPL wood. He chose white, grey and anthracite as colours to create a sofa tea table with a stylish, timelessly beautiful aesthetic. The black edges of the HPL tabletop are carefully chamfered and the corners are butted, lending the living room table a high-quality overall appearance. Underneath the upper HPL top lies a discreetly inwardly offset layer of white birch plywood. Cleverly concealed, it provides the table top with even greater stability and makes the HPL top appear to float above the table legs.
Table with Metal Frame Made of Stainless Steel or Hairpin Legs in Black
The designer tea table by janEven is available with elegant, brushed stainless steel runners as well as with black powder-coated hairpin legs made of steel. The sofa coffee table with stainless steel skids has a height of 45 cm. The straight-lined metal frame lends the sofa side table a certain Bauhaus flair, while the sophisticated surface finish reveals the high quality of the tables. The perfect table legs for any home with a modern interior.
janEven tea tables with hairpin legs are 43 cm high. The slightly sloping course of the graceful, thin steel legs is reminiscent of the Scandinavian furniture style. With a powder coating in matt black, the hairpin legs harmonise ideally with the dark edge of the tabletop and add a very light look to the elegant table.
Advantages Over Other Tea Table Materials
Comparison with Glass, High Gloss, Solid Wood & Marble Tables
HPL is easier to clean and more scratch-resistant than a high-gloss / glass tea table:
Due to the high molecular density of HPL wood, dirt does not stick to it as quickly as it does to a glass or high-gloss coffee table. In addition, a table made of HPL wood is easier to wipe clean with a damp cloth without leaving streaks compared to a glossy / tempered glass coffee table. An HPL top is also more durable and scratch-resistant than tables made of material with a glossy finish or with a glass top.
janEven models are more elegant than tea tables made of solid wood:
A sofa table made of solid wood usually has a top that is quite thick and heavy. This is the case, for example, with wooden coffee tables with a solid oak top. The combination of a wafer-thin HPL table top with a birch plywood substructure makes the designer table by janEven look weightless and elegant in your living room.
Lighter than a marble tea table:
An end table / coffee table made of marble or stone has a much higher weight than a designer living room table by janEven made of carefully processed wood. In addition, the table by janEven in a timeless colour looks more modern than a living room table / tea table made of marble.
Why is the janEven Tea Table Angular instead of Round?
Every sofa tea table - coffee table and side table - by janEven has a puristic and beautiful appearance. This results from the timeless colours but also from the straight lines of each product. To achieve exactly this effect, the designer chose an angular basic shape for his sofa coffee tables.
A round tea table, on the other hand, can be used well to create a contrast to other angular furniture in the living room. Parents of young children also often choose a round coffee table without corners for safety reasons. However, if you would like a modern and timelessly beautiful tea table that immediately catches the eye and creates a visual calm in your living or working area, you should opt for a square or rectangular table.
Which Table Suits a Grey, Brown or Black Couch?Which tea table is the best match for your couch depends not only on its size but also on its colour. You will find out how wide / high a coffee table should ideally be in later sections. Below, you will find the ideal sofa side table colour for your couch in grey, brown or black.
Ideal Tea Table Height: Why are Coffee Tables so Low?A classic coffee table / tea table should be the same height as the seat of your armchair or sofa. That's why you usually come across coffee tables in stores or online shops that are 40 - 50 cm high. Every designer table / tea table by janEven falls into this range with a height of either 43 cm or 45 cm - depending on the type of leg you choose. If you are looking for a table that serves as an end table between two sofas that are placed in a perpendicular L-shape, the height should instead be coordinated with the armrest of the couch.
Optimally Positioning Your Tea Table
An ideal tea table position is achieved when the table is within perfect reach of the couch, but at the same time there is enough space for unobstructed passage. This results in the following distances:
- Distance between table and sofa: 45 cm
- Distance to other furniture such as the TV: 80 cm
If your couch is a classic 2 or 3-seater, the length of the tea table should not exceed one third to one half of the width of the couch.
Choose a Modern and Elegant Designer Table or one with Additional Functions?
The side table / tea table by janEven is puristic and elegantly constructed and combines a refined design with a high level of functionality. If you would like to buy a living room table with additional functions instead of a designer table, you will probably have to accept compromises in terms of appearance.
Tea table with a shelf: Some tables have an additional shelf under their top for more storage space. However, clutter quickly accumulates here and the things stored on the additional tray can sometimes be difficult to find if the table does not have a transparent glass top.
Table on wheels: A tea table with castors can be practical if you would like to use it as a mobile table or easily move it to the side to clean the floor. However, this can make the coffee table trolley less stable.
Adjustable height: As mentioned above, a height of 40 - 50 cm is ideal for a living room table. However, if you would like to use your tea table as a dining table as well, you might want to look for a coffee table that is height-adjustable. Depending on the height adjustment technology (crank etc.), however, the table may break more quickly than an ordinary tea table.
Coffee table with chest / drawer for more storage space: A tea table with a drawer or chest offers more storage space than a table with only a single storage surface. However, these models usually look chunkier than a stylish designer table.
Foldable: A foldable tea table can be collapsed after use to save space. However, if you have a sufficiently large living room, you should rather opt for a conventional coffee table. After all, it can be a nuisance to have to bring the table into the desired position before each use. A permanently expanded folding table is also not a good solution, as it is not as stable or aesthetically pleasing as a functional designer table.
