SPACE SAVER. Even the smallest of spaces can be useful with the help of a console table. Against the classic panelled backdrop of a London townhouse, the Murphy console doubles up as a reduced-sized desk, creating an office space where there was none.
Natalia describes the scene: “Understated yet elegant with the neutral tones of greys and silvers creating a calm space. I wanted to continue with a play on geometry which I featured within the sitting room of the house, with the swooping line and dramatic curve of the table then met with rectangular lights either side. The circular mirror above contrasts with the rigidity of the other pieces.”
NATURAL TOUCH. In a lakeside retreat, London designers Stephenson Wright get back to nature with a Villiers Brothers console table inspired by delicate leafless branches. A glass mirrored console table is suspended from a network of intertwining bronze stems which branch upwards in a natural configuration. The sculptural design is mirrored in the supporting wall, resulting in a doubly effective vignette.
The console’s jagged metal base – like stylised stalagmites – recalls the work of Paul Evans’ ‘Crown of Thorns’ collection and is topped with a clean limestone surface. The designer pairs the stand-out piece against a subtly geometric wall with a gilded Marc de Berny Kitoko mirror (designed by Francis Sultana) for a visually and texturally tactile vignette.
