Far from being old-fashioned, our modern nests of tables are designed to be stylish, functional and easy to integrate into contemporary decor.
What is a nest of tables?
A nest of tables is a small set of tables that graduate in size. There are normally three tables, with the smallest table nesting inside two larger tables. The graduating size means they all fit together, but without either the legs or top of one table and the underside of another touching.
This makes them a practical addition to any lounge or living area. They can be used to hold nibbles and drinks and when not needed, can be neatly stacked away.
- When not in use, they stack away neatly but can be a small focal point of interest in a space
- They can be used at impromptu gatherings, as a platform for drinks or other items
- They are the ideal height for card games
- They are also great for young children to sit at and enjoy colouring or drawing activities
- Investing in a nest of tables will mean you have an item of furniture that will serve its purpose time and time again
Wood, grey & white nests of tables
For a clean, minimalist look opt for a white or grey nest of tables, as they make a real talking point but add functionality to a space, without cluttering it.
Solid and painted wooden nests of tables are also popular, from dark traditional woods to lighter, modern wood finishes such as beech. There is also some stunning designer look nest of tables that complement the TV stand, bookcase and so on – why not choose an modern wood and metal nest of tables?
Whether you prefer traditional or contemporary nests of tables, we stock a great value range in the UK including finishes like grey, white and cream painted.
An 18th-century invention
Like many items of furniture, the modern nest of three tables was invented centuries ago to answer a practical and functional need.
In larger, statelier homes, there was an occasional need for small tables on which games could be played or needlework items to be temporarily stored. Thomas Sheraton identified the need and created a set of four nesting tables, graduating in size that could be stored in the drawing-room and used as and when needed.
