Nesting tables are certainly not new, but we seem to be seeing more and more of them at stores around South Africa at the moment, and we're intrigued by the increase in interest in this design. Of course, the appeal is clear - not only do these table clusters offer a huge range of functional configuration possibilities, but with the multi-tiered effect they create, they're also aesthetically appealing.
Here we pay homage to the versatile nesting table by rounding up five of our current favourites.
A contemporary take on the traditional, the Eclipse set by STUA comprises a cluster of four tables of different sizes and heights, and the smaller ones can be concealed beneath the larger ones when not in use. The beauty of this range lies in the clean organic forms and the endless combinations that are possible. The tables are available from Crema
and price is on request.
We love the decorative detail on this Damask set of two nesting tables from Zara Home
, which recently opened at the new Mall of Africa in Johannesburg. The duo makes for an eye-catching side table in a bedroom or lounge, and goes for R2 599.
The Stockholm nested side tables from Mr Price Home take their cue from Scandinavian furniture with sleek, clean lines and optimum functionality. The marriage of the cool grey top with pine legs gives the set of three a contemporary feel and makes it a handsome addition to a modern room. The tables cost R1 500 and can be bought online
The smaller of the two in this set of nested disc tables from Weylandts
sits neatly below the larger one and can be hidden entirely or pulled out to create a layered look. Each is handmade with round iron tops and the circular shape is repeated in the leg details. This combined piece is priced at R3 795.
Featuring wooden legs and a white top, the Loft table from @home
channels a Mid-century Modern look and feel, while being timeless enough to suit any interior (or exterior space, for that matter). Like with the options above, the smaller version can be nested to save space and then brought out when entertaining. The set retails at R3 599.
