Nest of Tables

We were pleased to be asked to design a nest of tables to replace a set of veneered mahogany tables that our customers already owned. After some discussion, we gained the insight that these tables were regularly used and moved from their ‘home’ postion to be used around their living room space. After consideration of wood choices and understanding their style choices, we set to coming up with ideas. We were most inspired by the concept of motion; the transfer of each table from A to B, shifting the furniture, changing the living space to suit the situation. We wanted to focus on this interaction in our design process.

We knew that the tables were going to be moved regularly and we wanted to make every aspect of this a pleasure.  We designed the rails to curve on the outside and scoop on the inside to just sit in the cup of the hand in the most comfortable manner.

The tall and elegant legs have been tapered to reduce weight for more manoeuvrability. Taller than a standard nest of tables, the surfaces of the tables are at an optimum height for use with sofas and armchairs.

The clarity of the gloss table top provides a beautiful depth to the largest surfaces.  In this case the rails and legs have had one less coat of finish leaving it slightly softer to the touch.

We believe that beautiful, high quality possessions enrich one’s life.
