Leonardo Design: Nesting Instincts

The nesting table is a design that has endured the centuries. Today we’d like to pay tribute to this ingenious idea with some popular nesting designs by Leonardo Tables by Design.

We can thank the famed cabinetmaker Thomas Sheraton for popularizing the nesting table who first featured it in his catalogue ‘The Cabinet Dictionary’ in 1803 when he showed a group of four spindle-legged tables named the Quartello. The idea caught on and, to this day, has become a permanent fixture in the home.

Interior designers are savvy about the benefits of using nesting tables in applications like hotel suites where the option of having extra surface area when needed without using additional floor space is particularly advantageous. We have also seen the table nest used effectively in corporate reception areas. Here they can quickly be arranged to serve a changing number flow of visitors or impromptu meetings.

So many uses and functions

Table nests are not restricted to reception rooms and can furthermore, be used effectively in numerous settings. This includes nightstands or bedside tables, kid-sized tables in playrooms, a display-cum-toiletries surface in the luxury bathroom, in the conservatory for plant displays, and (depending on materials used) perching stools.

All of these uses call for the correct choice of material. Metal tables are ideal for high traffic areas and kid’s playrooms. Spills are simply wiped up with a damp cloth and (style dependent) can withstand occasionally being squatted on. Leonardo Tables by Design offer a wide range of table-top options. Furthermore, they will happily advise you on the correct finish for your needs.
