A nest of tables can multiply your joy

If you haven’t discovered the pleasures of nested tables then
I suggest you check out some of the brilliant pieces produced
by Australian post-war furniture designers.

Nested tables are handy to have about, not only do they look
good but they are also functional. Ideal for that time when you
wanna have a cuppa whilst relaxing on the sofa, or eating a
meal on the veranda or balcony.

Set of nested tables (timber and glass) by Dario Zoureff (1950’s)

Nested tables come in all shapes and sizes, and there is generally
a design to suit most tastes and budgets. For 60’s and 70’s nested
timber tables, check out makers such as Parker and Noblett, and
for 1950’s it’s hard to go past the timber tables by Zoureff and Rosando.

If your taste goes towards the more industrial, then try out tables by
European designers such as Breuer, Albers and English company PEL.
I found the tables below in an op shop about 15 years ago, I think
they may have been made by PEL.

Happy bargain hunting,
