I am not sure what it is, maybe the solid simplicity, but I absolutely love the wood block end tables that stand bedside in some of the Ace’s unique rooms. These tables are solid, clean, simple, and make whatever sits atop them seem on display. If you are missing the necessary tools to produce one of your own, here are a few good sources and alternatives.
Design Within Reach offers a beautiful, and slightly more expensive, version of the Ace’s tables.
For half the cost, visit Vita Terra and see their many options ranging from end and side tables, to sets of coffee tables.
West Elm’s natural tree stump version gives a more natural look
For a premium price cork might also be an option. From Matter
The Crate Series, also from Matter, is an alternate look with a similar natural feel
The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs offers this take on the natural coffee table from Commune. A bit pricey, but a trip to a second hand store could land you a similar set of fruit crates or another vintage wooden solution for keeping your alarm clock off the floor.
