sometimes my life feels like one big search for the greatest low console table. i'm a sucker for a nice low credenza, storage unit or console table that's extra long and will (style-wise) stand the test of time. i'm always ducking in antique and mid-century shops hoping for a great find, but if i had money to burn, i'd pick up this dwr sussex version in a heartbeat ($1,998). perfect for making ac's dream tv (a giant plasma 50-inch) look slightly more stylish. and hey, while you're hanging out at dwr, test your knowledge of maharam's classic textile designs with this modernist memory card game ($36). bonus points if you can name the actual fabric as you turn over the cards.
