Switching traditional four-legged tables for striking stylised bases can have a transformative effect on your dining space. Available in an array of rustic wood and contemporary ceramic and glass top finishes, discover the timeless appeal of our top five designs from a few of our favourite brands below.
Despite its solid steel base, the Gordon Table from Cattelan Italia has a lightweight look through a subtle interaction of fine lines. The striking refined base is accentuated with the addition of a sleek extra-clear glass top, directing focus to the base whilst creating the illusion of a stylish floating entity.

The Millennium Table from Bontempi Casa features an impressive angular base. Bontempi’s addition of the dual base Millennium XXL version, alongside occasional pieces such as the Millennium Coffee Table and Side Table, certifies the timeless appeal of this design that complements current geometric trends with an added hint of glamour.
With a strong architectural presence, the Skorpio from Cattelan Italia features an embossed lacquered metal base available in a variety of classic and contemporary finishes. Its strong angles and linear alignment works simultaneously with colour variations and scratches to create an industrial feel, perfect alongside concrete finishes and earthy stone or wood top finishes.
