Cantilevered Tables Floating In Modern Luxury Homes

A lot of modern and contemporary home interiors focus on minimalism, trying to simplify everything as much as possible. And so, pieces of furniture such as floating beds and cantilevered tables become increasingly popular. Apart from being simple and stylish, cantilevered tables also create a really interesting visual effect as they appear to be floating.

The cantilevered table extension is usually lower than the kitchen island to which it’s attached. This way the two surfaces are easy to tell apart and they also each maintain their individuality, despite being linked to one another.{found on leichtwestchester}.

Various types of combinations are possible. For example, the table can be a continuation of the island increasing the design in length, or the two can be designed perpendicularly in which case they intersect on their length and an L-shape is formed.{found on archipelagohawaii}.

Sometimes the two functions are blended so well that it’s impossible to tell them apart. We can’t really say whether this cantilevered portion is just an extension of the kitchen island for added counter space or a separate table.

It’s also possible for the cantilevered table to double as a bar and even as a minimalist island for the kitchen. It can be complemented by bar stools and it can have a thick, solid top placed in the continuation of the kitchen counter to form a U-shape such as in this case.{found on informinteriors}.

Cantilevered tables are not always attached to other structures. They can be freestanding pieces and they can double as kitchen islands or bars. In these cases they often feature sculptural designs and stand out with their form, not necessarily their color of finish.{found on talbotlepagedesign}.

In some cases, a cantilevered table can be attached to a wall on one side. This is a really stylish example of such a table. Placed in the corner, it becomes the main piece for the dining area. In addition, the strong black and white contrasts make it stand out even more.
