The Godwyn side table is a piece in this collection which I truly marvel at. The amusing fox heads, hand-carved amongst leaves and foliage, make for a pleasing and yet frivolous atmosphere. The front of the table, being a drawer, makes this piece suitable either by the sofa or by the bed. It's important to occasionally add humour to a decorative scheme.

A modern interpretation of a mid century buffet as resulted in the Hewlett. A pair of cupboards realised on an open stand will give an edge to a contemporary room. The detail is well resolved and the proportions are perfect.

I rather fancy I shall use the Marshfield sofa and chair in my new library that I am building in London. I am very keen on upright sofas in front of small console tables and the proportions of these pieces can only be credited to the arts and crafts period from which the designs originate. With hand caned seats, turned legs and slatted backs, the Marshfield collection seems to me to be perfect.
My Artaross console, which we have made in both grey crotch mahogany and greyed oak, has drawers lined in my signature grey polka dot marquetry. This table has been utterly and totally invented! Given my fancy for the gothic, it seemed amusing to make a console table for our dining room that could work alongside the Longwood dining table.
Our Godwyn console table, taken from its smaller friend, seems to me to fit perfectly behind the sofa, on which to place a pair of beautiful lamps and a large tray of cocktails. Again, the drawer of the table is lined in our signature grey polka dot. I think a little fantasy in any decorative scheme always lightens the mood.
My Hemsley painted table with faux marble top has followed me around since the age of twenty. It is a lovely example of Swedish painted furniture and seems to me to be the perfect size to fill almost any need. Pop it between a pair of chairs or by the bed and sure enough you will understand the elegance of this simple piece.
I have always loved a little rich mahogany detail in a decorative scheme. Our Dudley console together with the Pen Stewart mirror looks marvellous in a traditional hall or dining room. I decided to sneak in a drawer so that the console table becomes more flexible and useful. It is worth noting the beautiful proportions of the leg on this piece.
The Marshfield end table is ideal at the end of the sofa or between a pair of Marshfield chairs.
