Console Table 01

Simply beautiful with a modern sofa

We love the minimalist elegance of the Lennon console table, inspired by the simplicity of Scandinavian style. Tapered solid oak legs support a strong tempered glass top, fixed with bolts of the type you’d see on chic industrial shelving. This is a stunning piece of modern furniture that would look beautiful paired with a modern sofa, at a very affordable price.

Adding the wow factor in the hall

The Cavendish console table with drawers could be the ideal hall table, a lovely simple piece of contemporary furniture in striking two tone oak with a split panel top and refined aged oak veneers. The stylish tapered legs are a nod to clean, Danish design while the wavy edge of the drawers add to the boutique hotel vibe. This lovely piece is also available without drawers, perfect for fans of the simple elegance of Scandinavian furniture.

Console Table 02

Useful in the kitchen… or any room

A casual and contemporary piece of furniture, the Dorset console table is beautifully crafted, with a rich pippy oak veneer. It’s incredibly versatile and could be placed in a hall as a telephone table or in the kitchen as a place to store napkins and cutlery.

With its fresh country style, the Annecy console table suits the kitchen, living room, hallway or dining room. While it’s elegant it’s also very functional with two soft-close drawers, a spacious top surface, and a large lower glazed shelf.

Perfect paired with industrial lighting

Rustic furniture is given a modern twist in the Jagger console table which has metal table legs and a stunning solid waxed oak top with a raw edge – every table is unique. This lovely console table is ideal as an occasional table in the living room, as a hallway table or kitchen side table, paired with modern accessories and industrial lighting.

Console Table 04

Sophisticated in the living room

The Troy console table is simplicity itself, a glamorous choice with its luxurious marble top in a choice of colours and angled metal legs with a bronze finish. While it would look good anywhere, it could easily star in the living room, paired with a classic sofa.
