Evolving our successful trestle design for consoles and coffee tables

Recently we have been pushing the boundaries with one of our most popular engineered design concepts – our trestle legs – which are now being manufactured for console and coffee tables, as well as desks.

Our trestles are already proudly supporting a wide variety of desk tops up and down the country (and beyond) so it seemed a natural step to start exploring new applications for the home as well as the office.

The original concept was designed by Jason Winder during his time at Dovetailors and is a thing of beauty, which has already been adapted using different woods and finishes – not to mention dimensions. We have made trestles for corner desks, rectangular desks, tilt top desks and large meeting tables. We can calculate the correct dimensions for almost any existing tabletop, or we can create trestles to suit a certain space and advise a customer on the precise size of top to order.

The latest evolution of the trestle takes the style in two new directions. For the coffee table, we have calculated the optimal dimensions for shorter, wider legs which are still sleek and stylish and look fabulous when they are supporting a square glass top. The glass contrasts with the wood in a way that intensifies the warmth and character of the grain and, as with our desk trestles, the legs can be adapted to support custom size tables. The result is a statement piece of furniture which will become a feature in any contemporary home.

The trestle console table can be used to great effect in both a domestic and commercial environment. In the workplace, a glass topped trestle console complements any trestle desks that are already in use for an ultra-modern office.  At home, the glass and wood trestle console table is a striking feature for entrance halls and living spaces. We have calculated the dimensions of the trestle to be tall and narrow-set to support a shallower and wider surface. The result looks elegant and is strong , stable and practical enough to display even heavy lamps and vases.

We are looking forward to seeing some photos from customers who have ordered our new console and coffee table trestles so that we can see how incredible they look in different settings.
