Nests of tables are a great way to add versatility, style and space to a living room. With a selection of different sized tables, you can opt to use them in once, to create a funky graduated effect, or you can choose to space out individual tables, or use them as required. They can make a great visual impact and are a stunning alternative to standard coffee tables. UK furniture designers are creating beautiful contemporary and traditional nests of tables in a range of styles and materials, which are perfect for every home. Read on for some of our top picks…
Nests of tables can be found in a range of styles, materials, and sizes. A standard ‘nest’ is often a set of three tables in graduating sizes, which can be fitted neatly into each other. This makes nests an ideal space saving option, as you can stack all three tables in one spot. For added practicality, you only need to take out the appropriate sized table for your use, making these a great solution for apartments and studios.
As living room and dining room furniture style evolves into more contemporary fashions, you can find wood furniture in a range of finishes. Solid dark wood tables in mango wood or walnut look rich and lustrous, with deep, luxurious hues that can offset a bright, spacious room perfectly. In sleek box shapes, these tables show off the wood brilliantly, in a solid and attractive design.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, glass nests of tables look strikingly modern, and add versatility to your options by coming in a range of unusual shapes, and not just your typical ‘table’. Rounded glass tables or petal shaped tops look wonderful when arranged as a full set and can be used to create an attractive focal point. A solid glass table made of a sheet of glass bent into shape adds an abstract and space age touch, with a cool, frosted glass finish. For a more slick appeal, glass coupled with chrome or stainless steel looks refreshing and is perfect for a contemporary styled home.
If slick modern minimalism isn’t your thing, don’t worry. You can also find beautifully designed traditional or vintage styled wood furniture online and in furnishing sales, such as an antique styled ornate finish or mahogany table set. Other handy options are a mini-nest with just two tables – perfect if you only need a couple of small tables around the home, or to use as display features.
