The heart shaped Petal table adds charm and character wherever you put it. It curves gently around a chair or works in a small corner. Great for small living rooms, or as a bedside table! It is available in a range of different colours for the top, which is made with coloured laminate bonded onto birch plywood. The legs are turned using natural ash wood, and they fit into angled blocks in the top. They are easily assembed, no tools are needed. All our timber comes from sustainable sources, and our tables are made by a family team of wood experts based in Cornwall, England.
This curve top table is particularly good in a compact space where you need a good looking and practical feature. The colourful laminate top is hard wearing, heat resistant and colourfast. It’s easy to clean, and the angled legs keep it firm and stable.
Where best? Particularly good as a corner table, useful and practical between two chairs, and it’s great as a bedside table with room for a light, clock and cups. It’s versatile, it works in a living room, bedroom, conservatory, office; it’s also suitable for both young and nearly grown up. A must have for the playful and style conscious.
‘I drew the shapes out by hand onto a sheet of board, we cut them out and selected the ones I liked best.’
I had been looking at and researching table design for several years, and particularly wanted to use laminate with a birch ply base with a bevelled edge and I had also seen angled leg fixing blocks. I especially wanted the table tops to be laminated on one side only, leaving the underside bare, which for me allows the quality of the material to come through.
The curvy shapes happened because I wanted to design a distinctive low table with modern style and an irreverent, characterful quality. I did lots of drawings, and we cut templates until I was happy with a group of individual shapes that work together.The Petal shape evolved from the Palette shape and follows the same curves. It's quite small and fits into small or awkward spaces, it can be a bright spot in a neutral space.
