“ Brand: Fashion for Home / Type: Table „
After moving into a larger home late last year we needed something bright and functional to go in our new hallway. This elegant and modern console table is designed to fit against a wall making it a functional but unobtrusive piece of furniture. This table is quite substantial for a small table and measures: Height 78 cm, width 80 cm, depth 40 cm. The legs are fairly long and make up about 60cm of the total height giving the table, in my opinion, a slightly leggy, unstable look. It is made of solid pine and painted with a white lacquer finish. It has some deliberate distress marks added which I do not really care for as I feel they take away the sharpness of the table and feel if a table is old it will look distressed but if it is new it shouldn't.
However, the design and detail afforded to this piece makes it a very touchable item of furniture that does anything but discreetly sit against the wall. The attention to detail is exquisite and really makes the table stand out as a focal piece in my hall. Each of the four legs have bevelled sections to the tops which set off the rounded top section; the legs are sturdy and get wider as they go up with their widest point at the top where they meet the drawer section. This, half moon shaped top section holds the small drawer; just big enough to hold some keys and a phone book and pen if you decide to use it as a phone table. We throw our keys in there when we come in which means the draw is opened constantly. This constant opening has no effect on the stability of the table with low level things on it like a phone but I am not sure how stable the table would be if it held a vase of flowers or something more delicate like an ornament. The handle is a small ring attached to a diamond plate made of a black/coppery distressed metal; this addition gives it an almost antique look but the whiteness of the table adds the modern twist.
The Adorno table is from Fashion for home website and is part of a huge range of furniture that has over 30 different pieces suitable for many rooms in your house like the bedroom, kitchen and the bathroom. At £99 it is not the cheapest of hall tables but the clean lines and detail make it a very nice piece and one that should last a while.
It came flat-packed and had to be assembled when it arrived. Now this is usually a real bugbear of mine but I have to say this time it was easy and I was able to complete the table quickly and with no loss of screws or patience. The delivery was quick, free and easy to arrange. All in all a great addition to my furniture and one I would recommend.
