Coffee Tables – Spring 2020 Style Shot

In this Style Shot, we introduce our range of side and coffee tables, carefully curated to save you the hard work of selecting your next perfect piece!

Given the amount of coffee we drink as a nation, it’s no surprise that a quick Google for coffee tables results in a quite overwhelming number of styles, shapes and build quality. So how do you source your next exceptionally made, super-stylish, coffee, side or occasional table, without spending hours scrolling through screens of same-old same-old?

Firstly, a practical matter to consider: although often seen as a companion table, there’s no reason why your next side table can’t make a statement of its own. Decide whether you want your table to complement your existing look or shout out your new style, and then the rest is easy!

Statement side tables

Let’s start with the pieces that make the most noise! These are tables that, literally, stand on their own two feet. Use them to broadcast your existing room style loud and clear.

We’ve chosen the raw industrial concrete and iron Willy coffee table from Danish design powerhouse Muubs to start this list.

Muubs Willy Concrete and Iron Coffee Table from Accessories for the Home

Coffee tables don’t get any tougher than this! Concrete and iron are the cornerstone (!) materials of industrial style interior design. The simple form of this reference piece shows them off to their maximum.

With one of these on each side of your sofa, there’s no doubt whatsoever of your style intentions!

Moving on to something at the more elegant end of the range, with the Dutchbone Boss round marble side table.

Dutchbone Boss Round Marble Side Table from Accessories for the Home

This is most definitely one for in front of the sofa! A coffee table with style clout! The Boss marries the opulence of green marble and brass with a geometric open frame, to accentuate the elegance of the materials.

And now for something completely different. The Crane table from Dutchbone (available in either black or gold) is most definitely the Marmite of side tables! Suffice to say, we love it!

The crane is believed to be a symbol of happiness and eternal youth. Well, we’re not sure about eternal youth, but owning this table will certainly bring you happiness, and will never fail to start the conversation!

The last of our style statement tables is the stunning Sari, again from Dutchbone.

Dutchbone Sari Brass Top Side Table from Accessories for the Home

With a Middle-Eastern influence to its decorative metal top, this is a more compact side table that nevertheless makes its presence known.

Complementary coffee tables

Looking for something that blends in without fading out? Our Scandi-inspired side tables offer sleek, minimalist design in light tones, to perfectly complement a Nordic styled space.

Take, for example, the Hamar round side table (available in either grey or white top).

Epitomising the ethos of Scandinavian design, this three-legged, super simple side table is the perfect complement to a light, cool, contemporary living space.

For something on the more elegant side of industrial, we finish with a perfect pair from Nordal, with their black iron and glass side tables.

Console Tables – Spring 2020 Style Shot

In this Style Shot we take a look at console tables. Often over-looked but extremely versatile, the right console table can transform the look of a hallway, living space or bedroom.

The console table has come a long way from its French origins. Traditionally it described a half-moon shaped table fastened to the wall with an S-shaped bracket (called a console). This made the table appear to be free standing.

Having evolved through many designs, including the addition of legs, contemporary consoles come in many shapes, sizes and styles. Nowadays, any long, narrow table or shelf unit falls under the general heading of a console.

Today’s Console Table options

There are a wealth of options available to you when choosing a console table. We’ve taken a few of the key pieces from our range below, to help you decide.

Woood June Black Metal Console Table from Accessories for the Home

Proving that a modern console doesn’t have to be a table, the June from Woood is a slender black metal shelving unit that offers a great alternative to the traditional form.

With plenty of open storage, this is a versatile piece that puts the spotlight on your display, rather than taking the limelight itself. Perfect for a modern industrial hallway or living space, or even as storage in a large bathroom.

Woood Romy Black Wood Dressing Table from Accessories for the Home

Our second offering from Danish designers Woood brings a completely different look and material. The black wood Romy is, strictly speaking, a dressing table. But its small, narrow format makes it equally effective as a console for a smaller hallway.

With storage drawers and a fold-up mirror concealing an additional storage space, this is a practical, compact all-in-one piece that makes its own style statement. A great alternative to the traditional entrance hall table.

Statement, storage or both?

Nordal Bertie 8-Drawer Black Iron Console from Accessories for the Home

A modern family hallway is a busy place – and there is no end to the stuff that gets left there.

Introducing the Bertie from Nordal. A storage superstar in iron, it has eight roomy drawers and plenty of space on top. And thanks to its high legs, there’s also ample shoe storage possibilities below. All packaged in an unashamedly industrial style.

Nordal Black Wood and Gold Console Table from Accessories for the Home

To finish with, something a little more classically console. The gold detailing of Nordal’s more traditionally shaped black wood table will start conversations wherever it is placed.

An elegant addition to a sophisticated entrance hall, or a touch of decadence in a plush living space or bedroom. This is a statement piece that won’t fail to deliver!
