Although it was inspired by a grand antique (at Blenheim Palace, hence its name), this tall, bedroom side table’s airy elegance is just right in a less-is-more home. The curves on the base are graceful – not fussy – while the darkened oak finish is a nod to its antique origins but has a tactility and matte appearance that helps Blenheim strike a balance between old and new.
Design & engineering
Like most of our unpainted timber furniture, we’ve made Blenheim from oak, chosenfor its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage.Knots and variations in tone are part of its character, so each and every part of Blenheim will be unique.
Brushing the oak removes the soft fibres from its grain, so you get a rustic, touchable texture.It’s thenprotected with ourIsoGuard®treatment oil inDarkened Oak, whichguards againstdirt and scuffswithout masking,and givesthe oak adeep, rich colour that makes even more of a statement out of the distinctive wood grain.
This is the kind of table that’s best suited to the corner of a room or beside a bed as it’s a little too tall for most chairs. It hasenough space on itstabletop for a paperback and a glass of water, and of course, a lampstand.
Although the drawer in this table is quite slim – so as not to detract from the delicate proportions – it is large enough for a few essentials. We’d say it’s best suited toa guest bedroom or to the bedside of a more minimal person.
Blenheim is full of decorative details, like the arcs at the base that reference the fretwork of the 18thcentury table that inspired it; or the rounded, tapered legs with their carved details; and the unusual, castellated shape of the tabletop. It’s kept from being fussy though, by its crisp edges andtactilefinish.

Care & need to knows
Just so you know
Blenheim’smade from natural timber, which will expand and shrink slightly as it responds to the humidity and temperature in your room. We’ve used joinery techniques that’ll help to counteract this, but small changes are completely natural. In the unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.
