Vintage gate leg drop leaf table(ends 05 Jun, 2015 15:06:29 BST)

Emmaus Bristol* currently has for sale this vintage teak gate leg drop leaf table. It’s a really practical & useful table; for either daily or occasional use. It comfortably sits 6 people when extended but, when needed, it can collapse down to a width of a mere 21.5cm – ueful if you’re short on space!

The central panel has lightened with age noticeably more than the leaves. It should be a fairly straightforward DIY sand & stain job to match them up again. Other than that, it’s in good condition.

It’s a ‘buyer to collect’ item, but Emmaus are happy to deliver (for a fee) within Bristol city limits if you happen to be local.

*Emmaus Bristol is part of a worldwide charitable organisation that helps individuals, who for a vast variety of reasons have become homeless or are facing homelessness. The charity here in Bristol collects donated household effects and sells them through our three shops. We sell furniture, electricals, clothing, bric-a-brac and bicycles. This provides work for our companions which generates money that goes towards relieving the burden and stigma of income support. Also providing a safe living environment, until such time as the individual is able to move onto independent living. Emmaus, through solidarity also works with other local and international charities.


Gimme Five! Coffee tables

selection of 5 coffee tables

We had a new competition start this morning with a prize of a rather elegant, limited-edition coffee table. We thought we’d feature a few more versions of coffee tables available on the web.

There probably aren’t that many homes out there that don’t have at least one coffee table; it’s such a versatile piece of furniture. Use it to serve coffee, by all means – but it can also double (quadruple?) up as a bedside table, stool or footrest.

We were particularly tickled by the pizza box table/stool from Firebox. It would fit perfectly in a teenager’s or student’s bedroom!

  1. Mocha Modern Triangle coffee table – oiled oak: £169, Funique
  2. Incredible cardboard stool: £19.99, Firebox
  3. Fergus coffee table: £229, Swoon Editions
  4. Rattan table: £275, Cox & Cox
  5. Muuto Around small coffee table: £275, Occa Home

Limited edition Arcade table designed by Sam Baron for Just99 | H is for Home We have an absolutely gorgeous competition prize for you this month – it’s just too bad we can’t enter ourselves! 😉

Limited edition Arcade table designed by Sam Baron for Just99 | H is for Home Just99 has agreed to ‘furnish’ us with one of these beautiful, limited-edition Arcade tables to give away to one of our readers.

Limited edition Arcade table designed by Sam Baron for Just99 | H is for Home The Arcade was designed by Sam Baron exclusively for Just99 and retails at €189. The company, launched in the UK this February, hosts a selection of beautiful art work and interiors pieces for the home, created exclusively for them by international architects, designers, photographers and artists.

As their name suggests, only 99 units of an item are produced. Almost every week, a new product or edition is added to their website and, after all 99 are sold, that’s it – they’ll no longer be available, thus creating a ‘buzz’ and sense of desirability. If you’d like to the proud, new owner of one of these limited-edition Arcade tables, just tell us what room in your house the Arcade table would live.
