Henley gets its smooth, low-sheen finish from a couple of processes. First, our IsoGuard® treatment oil, which makes oak easier to live with without masking its texture. Then we apply a water-based top coat for additional protection. The result looks like the oak has been left completely natural.
We use oak because of its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage (we’ve written more on it here). Part of its character are its knots and variations in tone, so each piece will have its own hand-writing.
This is a rectangular side table, though not a long and slim one. It’s a good balance between having a wide tabletop – at least enough room for a lampstand, a cup of tea and a book – and not taking up as much floor space as a square design might. It’s also the right height for seating that’s either low or high-armed.
Henley combines curved legs with an otherwise square-edged design – on the tabletop, the shelf beneath and the blocks at the top and bottom of each leg – for a dynamic contrast of shapes. There’s also a great deal of detail in its joinery, such as the carved lip underneath the tabletop.

Taking care of Henley
Looking after Neptune designs is easy – they won’t ask you for a lot. But, whether you’d like advice on everyday cleaning or seasonal and yearly care, you’ll find all our tips, suggestions and recommendations in our care guides.
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.
The joy of sitting in
Ways to rekindle the joy of an evening in, from the practical (choosing the perfect seat), to the fun (setting up a home cinema) to the emotive (why ‘hygge’ is still relevant).
