Blenheim Tall Side Table

A closer look at Blenheim

This side table was inspired by an antique one seen at Blenheim Palace – we wanted to recreate its delicate details, but in a way that would fit with a less-is-more home. The result is a piece that’s suitable for both bedrooms and living spaces, made from oak with swooping curves and graceful proportions, but a resilient nature.

Materials

We use oak because of its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage (we’ve written more on oak’s qualities here). Part of its character are its knots and variations in tone, so each piece will have its own hand-writing

Finish

The oak has been lightly brushed to remove some of the softer fibres from the grain and create slightly more texture. It’s then protected with our IsoGuard® timber treatment oil in the Chalked Oak finish, which gives it a paler appearance, makes it easier to live with and highlights the grain.

Storage

Without detracting from the delicate proportions, this table’s drawer creates space for hiding a few essentials. It’s a perfect piece for a guest bedroom or the more minimal among us, or for tidying away clutter in a living room.

Size

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 has enough space on its tabletop for a paperback and a glass of water, and of course, a lampstand.

Design detail

Blenheim is full of decorative details, like the arcs at the base that reference the fretwork of the 18th century 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 and honest finish.

Just so you know

This piece is made from natural timber, which will expand (slightly) and shrink (just a little) 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 in your piece are completely natural and to be expected. Just know that, in the very unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.

Taking care of Blenheim
