An Occasional Table

This little piece of furniture has me at the title! It sounds so casual and yet so desirable. Occasional tables conjuring up images of the nesting dark wooden four legged pieces that sat quietly in the corner of my Grandparent’s house.

Be rest assured, there are many variations available that don’t have to fit this mould. This type of table is all about flexibility. These days our homes are open plan, our kids run free and our gatherings are casual – an occasional table allows flexible living for the stylish home. Lets take a look…

An original 1950s circular table has hidden storage for ease. Simple and practical – pure Mid Century style.

Take the traditional nest and go ombre – the greyscale look updates a classic.

For elegance and convenience I love these marbled topped and black metal framed occasional tables, very on tend.

For something a little different, how about metal mesh nest tables?

Marble again but this time in the round. I love the unique patterns and colours – instant class.

Something about these ombre tables makes me think of toadstools!

Overlapping transparencies add interest with these irregular shaped tables.

What space saving genius – A mirror and table all in one, great for the space-challenged home.

This table has to be one of the best I have seen. The separate elements are sculpture-like in day glow yellow, white and black. Together a succinct cube is formed.

For a natural nod I love these two tables that become one fashioned in honest wood.

Elegant gold frames these glass tables, the semicircle shape is actually quite handy.

And finally – super space saving and visually satisfying – this wooden nest of tables slide perfectly inside one another and would fit comfortably in most homes.
