A jewel of an occasional table, the Hexagonal Hatbox easily slips into any seating arrangement. A hidden door opens to provide storage for books, magazines or your collection of remote controls. Its beautiful walnut veneer has a subtle pattern on the top. From Barbara Barry Realized by Henredon at The Washington Design Center. Phone (202) 554-3340 or visit www.henredon.com.

TV enclosures are in, including this one from Stanley’s new Shelter Island collection. This Sheraton-style dark wood console conceals a plasma TV, which pops up at the push of a button. Visit www.stanleyfurniture.com.

The William Scott cerused oak cabinet harkens back to the 1930s with faint outlines of pears and circles in bas-relief on its doors. Variable internal shelves provide plenty of storage. Visit www.julianchichester.com.
