The Balance of Three
Friday, 22 October 2021
Arranging items asymmetrically can be often be more visually appealing and create more harmony than strict, hard-to-maintain symmetry — and adding various levels of height can help to create a sense of balance. For an easy update why not harness the all-powerful ‘balance of three’ with these selections of striking side tables.
The Ekero Side Table by Porada has a unique bottle shaped base that supports a rounded edge table top made from canaletto walnut with a lipped edge. The top and base come in a selection of shapes and finishes allowing you to mix and match with ease.
Continuing the cylindrical aesthetic, the Sting Side Table by Cattelan Italia features a stylish round ceramic top, an offset base, and a sleek double stem. Available in a range of sizes so the tables can be arranged together in sets for unique compositions.
For a bolder statement, the Benny Keramik Coffee Table by Cattelan Italia has a low profile complete with a rounded square ceramic top supported by a lacquered steel frame with raised edges and overlapping sleigh-style legs. This design is available in a range of square sizes allowing you to style individually or group together as a set.
If a classic nest is more what you are looking for, then the Spillo Trio Tables by Cattelan Italia bring a minimalist twist to this aesthetic. Made from lacquered steel, the design uses the traditional nest format to sit together neatly, whilst showcasing tapered angular legs, cylindrical brass feet, and brushed metal table tops.
These occasional tables provide great functionality; when gathered together they'll look great while taking up a small amount of space, and they can expand out to create larger surface areas according to your needs.
