Seems like the hot material for new furniture these days is powder-coated steel. Besides the new Thorsten Van Elten Mechano Chairs, I'm really loving these Parallelogram tables by Design Glut ($495). In addition to the obvious aesthetic awesomeness that make you scratch your head and say,"how is that staying up?"; it's a modular flat-packing table system, so each table ships (and stores) flat and can be easily erected into a 20" x 19" x 17" table.
