Fresh Design Furniture: Hex glass side table

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Contemporary modern honeycomb hex side table

Side tables are often humble and functional – they’re the younger sibling that may seem overlooked when big brother is there. But not this side table. No sirreee, you can’t miss this little beauty!

The design and character of this side table is all in its legs. It’s gloriously constructed from a gold three legged hexagon honeycomb design that looks fantastic. It works particularly well with the glass top, that shows the design off from every angle.

This is one table that you’ll love to use with pride and won’t want to hide away at the side.

You’ll find the hex glass side table available from Graham and Green.

Fresh Design Style: Industrial trolley coffee table

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013


How to get the industrial style look

When you’re designing an industrial style living room, having the right style of furniture helps bring the look together.

There are lots of industrial coffee table designs available, but one popular style is the trolley or wheel barrow table. As the name aptly indicates, this style of table is all or part on wheels and has an air of rustic industrial charm, and its made from materials such as metal and wood.

One example is the Jodin Barro table. This table has been hand crafted from salvaged industrial steel, iron castors and has a wooden top made from reclaimed wooden planks. It works well as a coffee table, but can also double up as useful shelving or a display unit for your room.

The Barro table is available from Reason Season Time, where it’s currently in their sale.

Best geometric design table

As we’ve written previously, we’re loving the geometric home style trend at the moment and are pleased to have found another product that fits in perfectly with this look.

The Geo side table is a wonderfully geometric shaped table for a modern or contemporary home. Both the top and base are oozing with style and it’s a really funky piece.

The red table in particular, with its shiny lacquer finish, helps the design stand out and the open ‘stilts’ of the base fit well with a minimal interior scheme.

Normally the typical high street price of the Geo table would be about £129, but as it’s available from, this fab geometric table will only set you back £79.

It’s within the base, and the skyscrapers, that the storage solutions can be found. There are well constructed spaces that work as a magazine rack, the perfect sized sections to hold your TV remote controls and other little hidden nooks and crannies.

Champagne cork side table

Champagne cork handmade table

Giant cork table

Partial to a glass of champagne?

Here’s a different way of having more champagne in your life, in the form of a champagne cork side table!

The table is handmade from top quality natural Portuguese cork. It’s shaped like a cork you’d pop out of a bottle of a bubbly, only in a rather more giant size.

The top of the table is flat, so you can safely use it as a functional table for drinks, plates or even to stand a lamp on.

The champagne cork side table costs £110 (usually £120) from Impulse Purchase.

If you like the giant cork idea, then they also do a matching champagne cork stool or a Bordeaux wine cork stool.

Contemporary side table bedside table ideas

Designer side table

We’ve been on the lookout for a stylish and practical side or occasional table recently, but some of the options available are frankly rather underwhelming. Then we found the glycine side table, which is most definitely not underwhelming and ideally suited to a contemporary home.

Designed and made in France by Drugeot Labo, the angular design of the glycine side table gives it a distinctive and contemporary look.

The table is made from oak and the space under the top provides a useful area where magazines or books can be stored (just slot them in). There’s also a small drawer included and room on top to display favourite home accessories, stand a lamp or keep free for occasional needs.

As well as being functional for use in a living room or hallway, the table would also make a great bedside table.

The glycine oak side table is new in at Heal’s and costs £495.
