Our scientists have been hard at work, and they have finally discovered how to make occasional tables 100% permanent. In honour of their achievement, let’s have a look at the fantastic range we’ve got for you.
Dunelm’s collection of occasional tables covers every style imaginable, from very traditional wooden designs to those that really display the wonderful imaginations and eye for aesthetics of their designers. There are tables that might spend a lot of their time sitting unused, but they’re so beautiful that they have a habit of not being put back in place once the need to use them has passed.
Some occasional tables double up as storage space, with drawers and shelves incorporated to accommodate any bits and pieces that need hiding away. Others are simple tables, small in stature but poised to make a difference when those guests arrive and need somewhere to put their coffee cups.
A popular design of an occasional table is the magnificent nested table set. One medium-sized table houses one or two smaller ones inside, so while the largest one might see plenty of use as a lamp table, coffee table or couch-side table the baby ones only come out when they’re needed, but when they’re not needed, they’re not wasting any floor space as they sit nestled underneath.
You can choose something very modern for your occasional table if you like, as we’ve got plenty to choose from. How about a dazzling mirrored table for a touch of glam when it’s in use? Or a truly delightful ornament table, whose top sits on the head of a leopard or a Buddha, guaranteed to become a talking point the moment you reveal it to the room.
A lot of our occasional tables form part of specific collections, so if you want to get one to match some other living room furniture you have in place, please take a look at the name and see if you can get a matching or complementary table. It can make all the difference.
Unfortunately, while these tables are filed under “occasional” on this website, we’re hearing reports that some of our less disciplined customers have started using them all the time. Still, we can hardly say we blame them when they look this good and are built to last. How you choose to use yours is entirely up to you, so let’s just say you’re free to use these tables as occasionally as the occasion demands.
