This set of two side tables can be used separately or nested together if you’re short on space and only want to bring the smaller one out when required. They’re from our industrial-meets-refined Carter collection, made in such a way that they look a touch rustic, but not worn. And, as strong as their mix of oak and steel is, they’re also slim-lined and unobtrusive.

A closer look at Carter....
Size - Even the smaller table in this set offers a useful amount of space on its tabletop. This second table is also quite low, which does allow it to fit inside the other, but is worth bearing in mind if you have high-sided seating.
Design detail - Unlike the other Carter occasional tables, the frames on these are open at the front and back so you can easily pull the smallest out. Also practical are the discreet rubber feet underneath, so they’ll glide over hard flooring.
The finish - The oak goes through a seven-step process of brushing, staining and buffing to highlight the natural character in its grain. It’s then protected with IsoGuard®, our treatment oil that makes it easier to live with but that doesn’t mask its texture. We’ve aptly called the resulting appearance Dark Vintage Oak.
The finish: steel -Traditionally, steel is given a durable, blackened finish through quenching. But it’s an industrial process that’s just not practical for us, so we powder-coat Carter’s frame instead. Almost black in colour, but with a hint of bronze, it’s a finish that, although it may still show the occasional scratch, will age gracefully.
