Typically small in size, but with plenty of practical benefits, occasional tables are a piece of furniture that every communal area needs. From the living room and your personal dressing room to the hallway, you’ll find both a stylish and functional use for an occasional table in all areas of the home.
Whether you want a table to sit at the end of the sofa to give you somewhere to put the TV controller without losing it, a glass coffee table for the middle of the room to place your hot drinks on when you have guests over, or a complementary table for your dressing room to place a glass of fizz while you’re getting ready, we’re confident we have the table for you.
The hallway is the entrance to your home that welcomes in you and your guests. It’s an area that you don’t want to overcrowd, but want to make feel familiar and inviting the minute you step through your front door. An occasional table serves the perfect purpose in a hallway environment. It provides a platform to house a statement vase, a small house plant or a candle to create a warm atmosphere. We’d highly recommend getting one that has drawers where you can pop your keys inside, as you come in and out of the house ensuring you’re left with a safe place to store them. Our Naples 2 Drawer Console table would be the ideal addition to your home’s hallway. Its smooth, linear shape and silver-effect knobs will sit nicely in the hallway - and its compact design prevents it from dominating the entire hallway area, coming with two useful drawers that provide handy storage space.
The dressing room is one of the most relaxing and luxurious rooms in your home, which transforms into the heart of your home when getting ready - especially when you have friends over. Don’t get confused with your dressing table and occasional table - your dressing table is for placing your perfume, makeup and hair products on, along with a mirror to assist you in getting ready. An occasional table might be placed next to a sofa or a cosy chair, holding a bottle of wine to share with your friends while getting ready for a special occasion or event. Our Selva Piccadilly occasional table would be an excellent choice for any dressing room due to its contemporary style.
A home office is the room dedicated to helping you become more organised and get everything in order, whether it’s for work or used as a personal rest point. No home office is complete without a desk, and picking one that’s the best match for you is very important if you’re looking to create a comfortable space that you’ll use regularly. Our Grand Union Console table is a great addition to any office, for both practical and stylish reasons. It boasts a large work surface and has a front drawer that can be used for storing your laptop. The table works wonderfully in rooms of all sizes, due to the flip-down drawer’s ability to be stowed away when not in use.
