Claire Coffee is an alfred white coffee table that sits in a small apartment in the heart of downtown Toronto.
It’s just under 4.5 metres tall, making it one of the smallest coffee tables we’ve seen.
And it’s only a little over $10,000 in the red.
It came from the family of a Canadian who runs a coffee shop in Ottawa, but Claire’s owner is also a coffee grower and a part-time coffee barista in Canada.
Claire’s founder, Claire, was in a difficult time.
Her husband died suddenly from a rare disease when she was in her early 20s.
Claire was living on disability benefits and her family struggled to support Claire while her children were growing up.
Claire decided she wanted to create a coffee table to share her passion for coffee with the world. “
So, we were trying to do something that we thought was meaningful for us and that was a lot of work.”
Claire decided she wanted to create a coffee table to share her passion for coffee with the world.
The table is a unique design that she said is meant to capture her passion and show people that they can be a part of what’s going on around them, and Claire said she had to learn to work with her surroundings to create the table.
The tables are made of high quality wood and they’re painted with bright colours to give them a unique touch.
Claire said the coffee table was one of a few things that she had that she loved doing.
It was the last thing I worked on before my illness, she said.
So, it’s a little bit of a dream to me that I’ll be able to do these things, Claire added.
She added that Claire started making coffee table pieces as a hobby in 2008.
It wasn’t until the summer of 2014 when Claire had to quit her job as a barista to focus on Claire’s business.
“I had to put the finishing touches on it, Claire explained.
Claire moved from Ottawa to Montreal in 2011. “
It was just a really hard time for me to leave my job and to start making my own furniture, she explained.
Claire started to work full time at her coffee shop and Claire says that her business was growing at a rapid pace, but it wasn’t enough to keep up with the pace of the growth in her business. “
This was a really important time for Claire because she was starting to get older, and she wanted something to share with her family and friends, so Claire moved to Toronto,” Claire said, adding that she moved into her first apartment about three months after moving to Montreal.

Claire had been working on the table for about five months, Claire says.
“When I started, I thought it was a great idea to make a coffee bar, and I was really happy with the results.
I had a few pieces that were really good and I had some pieces that weren’t so good,” Claire told CBC News.
Claire started off with a few chairs and tables and soon she added a few more pieces. “
And I decided that if I’m going to do that, I need to get out and start making furniture that I’m happy with.”

Claire is happy with how the table turned out, she says.
Claire has started working with local artists to bring the table to life, and that includes creating the colours and the wood that Claire uses.
“For a while now, I’ve been using reclaimed wood in the coffee bar.
I really wanted to put that into the table, but I had to start by learning how to work in a commercial kitchen, Claire told us.
“There’s a lot to say about what you do in your everyday life,” Claire concluded. “
To me, I was always looking for something that was authentic, something that I would really relate to,” Claire explained, adding she’s also hoping that people can see the coffee tables as a statement about the work that they’re doing and what they want to be known for.
“There’s a lot to say about what you do in your everyday life,” Claire concluded.
Claire lives in the Toronto area and works in a variety of industries.
She has a masters in architecture from the University of Toronto and works as a furniture maker and a commercial real estate broker.
She currently lives in Ottawa.
Claire began her coffee-tables career in 2008 and says that she’s loved every minute of it, from the work to the design to the customer service.
“The customer service was the most rewarding part of it all,” Claire stated.
Claire plans to continue making coffee tables
