Whether you’re an avid fan of spy movies or simply a self-proclaimed minimalist, you’ve probably dreamed of having secret compartments around the house to keep clutter out of sight. Great news is, designs like these are real. There are plenty of houses and furniture items on the market that are as stylish as they are brilliant at keeping secrets. Let’s take a look at four cool tables that come straight out of your favorite spy movie.
Laura Desk by Phloem Studio
With such a sleek frame, it’s easy to wonder if there’s any space at all to store home office supplies without overcrowding the table. But take a look underneath the desk, and you’ll find two angled drawers that can be pulled out to store pens, paper clips, notes and even smartphones.
Hide by Tove Greitz
Just like its name suggests, Hide by Tove Greitz makes the perfect hiding place.
Serving both as a stool or a side table, Hide features a wooden patchwork exterior that can be moved around like a puzzle. Once you solve the puzzle, the lid unlocks itself to reveal a hollow compartment that fits plenty of items. Perfect for puzzle-lovers.
Cartesia by Nosigner
For anyone tired of having to reach into difficult spaces to retrieve files, Nosigner’s Cartesia desk offers the solution.
Nodding to the architecture of multi-storied pagodas in Japan, the Cartesia desk features a drawer system that opens in two directions, making it easier to reach for files, supplies and items hidden underneath. It saves the user from having to close each drawer to use the next, and the built-in power cable box keeps cords tangle-free.
Hidden Treasures Pub Table
A table that adds a little fun to regular game nights with friends and family.
There’s nothing like a good old game of chess, and I mean actual chess not virtual games against a bot. But there’s always the hassle of having to look for missing chess pieces when one goes astray. With the Hidden Treasures Pub Table, you get the ease of scooping the pieces into the center of the table as soon as the game’s done. And there’s space for tableware and glasses underneath the table too.
