Gin Huffer Occasional Table by Conker Brown for AUTHOR: home of British-made luxury furniture

Regular price £940 Sale

Commissioned by Author for our own collection of contemporary furniture and accessories.

Exquisitely detailed side table in oak and bronze.

Oiled oak with tapered bronze tripod legs. Ridged edge and triangular shaped bronze detail to top. A huffer is a triangular shaped soft roll, peculiar to Essex. The origin of the name is unclear but it is possibly a corruption of ‘half a’ loaf. In the case of this table, the name refers to the triangular bronze shapes.

We can also add a personalised message for you which you can provide in the ‘notes' section at checkout

Why we love this product

This round table is the perfect size for a novel, a G&T and a bowl of nibbles, or Granny’s afternoon sherry.

The proportions are perfect for it to nestle up conveniently close to a chair, and it is light enough to be moved around a room as needed and stored out of the way in an empty corner when not being used.

The styling on the Gin Huffer table suits any style of sofa or chair in a study or sitting space. The table top is supported by elegantly tapered bronze legs in a tripod arrangement. The oiled oak is offset by the metallic bronze of the legs and we really love the exquisite detailing on this useful little piece of furniture. The edges of the top are beautifully ridged, and hooked over the outside perimeter are two triangular, duck-foot shaped ‘handles’ in bronze.

We have commissioned this piece from a wonderful team who design and make handcrafted furniture in Britain.
