This weekend, we’re taking it easy by dreaming about relaxing neutrals, simple shapes and easy contemporary furnishing that doesn’t need a whole lot extra to create a beautiful home. From dining tables to home office work tables, it’s all about clean, relaxed furnishing style, in natural woods, complimented perfectly with just a touch of soft leather or PU, and clean metal accents. They’re perfect for creating a relaxed and inviting atmosphere, by combining practicality with an attractive contemporary look. Check out some of our favourite picks after the jump…

1 – Nests of tables are always extremely handy, and they’re definitely a must have for any home, big or small. There’s something about that stack of neatly graduated tables that fit perfectly amongst each other which just brings a sense of ease and harmony. In natural materials like solid wood, whether oak or pine, and a natural wood stain, they look perfect amongst a minimally styled home. Use one table as and when needed, or use the whole nest around the house.
2 – Speaking of oak, nothing beats an oak coffee table when it’s well made. Oak is a beautiful material with richness, depth and character and needs little fuss for the wood to truly shine. A simple coffee table accented with metal legs adds a modern edge to wonderfully classic living room furnishing staple. Perfect for hosting all your favourite coffee table books, newspapers and snacks.
3 – For neutral, clean style it’s best to go with natural woods like oak or acacia furniture. To offset these lovely materials, pick neutral shades for walls, chairs and throws. A family dining set with chrome edges and off-white dining chairs is ideal for a modern family home.
4 – Clean and neutral doesn’t have to be restricted to living room or dining room furniture – especially when you work from home. If you’re looking for an alternative to a traditional desk, or if you lack the space for a large workstation in your home, a sleek walnut wood table and chair set is ideal to create your own work corner at home. A great idea when you’re balancing your work space with your home life too!
5 – Don’t forget the extras that cane make the style of a whole room. Create additional space with side consoles and sideboards that combine practicality with style. A contemporary styled acacia wood grain occasional coffee table is a great addition to a living room.
