Both decorative and functional, sofa, console and hall tables are incredibly versatile pieces of furniture.

Once upon a time, sofa tables were placed directly in front of a sofa – much like our modern day coffee tables, actually – to serve tea, write letters and dine. These days, however, they have been relegated to the sidelines. Although this might seem like a downgrade of sorts, there are plenty of ways to use your sofa table and make it stand out. Nowadays, for instance, these tall, narrow, timber tables are commonly used behind the family sofa to hold lamps, photo frames and other decorative pieces. Sofa tables can also make excellent room dividers for larger spaces, while many of our customers in smaller homes use their sofa table as a desk in a tight space. Evidently, the only limit is your imagination!

Hall tables and console tables are also very versatile furniture designs. Place one in your entry for storing any small (and easily misplaced) items that you need to quickly grab when you’re heading out the door, such as keys, wallets and sunglasses. You could also try hanging a mirror above your hall or console table so you can double-check your appearance on your way out of the house. Bonus: a mirror will also make a small space appear larger.

Here at 1825 interiors, we specialise in furnishings for the family home. What separates us from the rest is that our sofa, console and hall tables are made from recycled timber shipping pallets, sourced from all over the world. This gives our sofa, hall and console tables a genuine 'old world' feel and a tick for being both practical and environmentally friendly.
