Space saving furniture is getting bigger in choice as city apartments get smaller.  Console tables and occasional tables are being leant against the wall which certainly helps us maximise precious square feet.  I’ve found a selection of space saving furniture lean to tables crafted from wood, metal and a combination of these two materials from Heal’s and Houseology.  Some are stand-a-lone with no fixing necessary while others need to be secured to the wall.

Space Saving Furniture Lean to Occasional Tables

The Menu Wall Table Low is minimal with clean lines.  You’ll notice that part of the table top is bent upwards which rests against the wall to give support to the legs.  This clever design means that you don’t need any other fixtures to support it.  It’s made entirely from steel which has been powder coated in four colours – moss green, nude, light grey and white.  This occasional table can be used as a resting place for a lamp, books, plants or your coffee cup.  The measurements are 52.5cm high, 32cm wide and 40cm in depth – £93 from Houseology.

Space Saving Furniture Lean to Console Tables

The Shifty Console Table is ideal for the hallway.  The central drawer opens up as normal and you also get a hidden compartment which is revealed if you pull the entire unit towards you.  When this portion is open it actually doubles the surface space.  The top is made from ash solids and veneers while the tubular metal leg has been powder coated for protection – £1295 from Heal’s.

This Walnut and Ash Console Table has been designed by Alexander Mueller.  The quirky geometric shape has been influenced by origami.  The construction uses tongue and groove joints which gives the piece decorative interest.  Magnets have been placed inside the table body so you can keep your keys safe in one place.  The measurements are 83cm high, 80cm wide and 39cm in depth – £600 from Heal’s.
