This little round gold side table is a bestseller at homewares company Melody Maison. It’s made of metal (both the top and legs) – the top is brass/gold and the legs are black. The top is dish-shaped, so that it has a shallow rim around the edge, and a decorative pattern of concentric rings. The top measures 35cm in diameter, and it stands 48cm tall.
At Christmas, I always, always need more space. We have a dog, so can’t put things like wine bottles down on the floor (well, we can, but….), so I generally have to try and squeeze things onto the top of sideboards and cupboards to keep them out of the way.
I was really interested to put this side table through its paces. It arrived in a surprisingly small box, which contained the top and the legs packaged separately. It was extremely easy to assembly – the three metal legs had screw threads on them and fitting into corresponding sockets underneath the table top. Despite only having three legs, it’s sturdy and balanced and it looks neat and unobtrusive – perfect if you haven’t got much space.
The table has a max weight tolerance of 5kg, so it would make a great stand for an artificial Christmas tree or a perfect place to display the cake and keep it out of the way – the gold colour makes it feel really festive.
Equally, it’s ideal for putting by an armchair as a personal coffee table, or for standing by the dining table to take the overflow of bottles. It would be practical to take it apart and reassemble it as needed, as the process is so quick and easy, and once taken apart it takes up practically no room to store.
I put this table out for some guests a few days ago, and haven’t taken it down as it’s proving so useful – in fact, I think this is going to stay in situ all year round! At £35.95 I think this gold side table is good value for money and will find a variety of uses around the house, from plant stand to somewhere to put the spare guest towels. Melody Maison also have a range of other side tables, you can find out more or buy online at the Melody Maison website.
