Side and Coffee tables
Most of Lutyens’s designs for “Occasional”, side or console tables emanate from New Delhi. Notable amongst these are the Delhi Occasional Table, the Tripod table and the D-end console.
The Delhi Occasional Table, in particular, is a work of architecture all by itself. The triangular base with moulded legs comprises three hopes set in squares, all beneath a circular top with three leaves that drop down the sides of the base or sit resting on the points of the triangle. A feat of geometric design!
The D-end consoles were as full and half D-ends. We have taken it a stage further by capturing just the Demi-lune and also have also drawn these as a full circle. All are available with stone tops or timber veneer.
Elsewhere, in our collection of side and coffee tables we have adapted other designs by Lutyens and taken the idiom to create pieces of furniture for which there was little purpose in his day. The range of Mansfield tables draws on the massing of the Drogo table, the Simla Table uses mouldings found in some of his upholstered furniture and the Octagonal Coffee table is a lowered version of the BP Chairman’s desk.
All side and coffee tables are available in different timbers and finishes and, in many cases, to any required size.
