Elaborate in detail, simple in structure, The Bobbin Side Table has been designed for functionality with a distinctly modern aesthetic. 

Taking influence from 17th century English and Dutch ‘spool’ furniture, this iconic design detail consists of decorative bobbles, hand-turned into the timber. This technique was often seen on chair, stool and table legs, first introduced by makers using off-cuts from sewing bobbins.

Details: The Bobbin Side Table

Designed in our Beverley studio, The Bobbin Side Table is brought to life in our workshop using traditional wood-turning techniques. With quality and sustainability at the forefront of our practice, we only work best British timbers to produce our furniture. The Bobbin Side Table is available in a number of different timbers, Natural Oak, Ebonised Oak, Brown Oak, Walnut and Elm.

Available in Natural Oak, Ebonised Oak, Brown Oak, Walnut and Elm.

The counterpoint to this elaborate spool detail is a very simple structure, designed primarily for functionality, with a distinctly modern aesthetic.
