Best Tables

  • Barntiques

    Chelsea Antiques Showcase, 109 W. 25th St.; 570-383-6300

    Despite their country origins, these rustic tables are beloved by city slickers for their rough-hewn looks and seeming indestructibility. Builder Tony Garcia’s business is centered in rural Pennsylvania, where he repurposes century-old barn wood—but more than half his clients are New Yorkers (including Edie Falco and James Gandolfini). The best fit for a cramped, overpriced apartment? The 30-by-48-inch New Yorker, with tuck-away folding panels on each end ($550).
