Grey trestle tables

We have had a huge run of grey trestle table orders lately! I can completely understand why. Scandinavian interior design is so popular and on trend at the moment. We have fallen for it in a huge way as well! Our home is currently a mish-mash of black, white and grey with flecks of aqua. Grey trestle tables look so gorgeous in an Scandinavian aesthetic.

I had lots of fun with this photo shoot of a custom trestle that we built for a lovely client in Melbourne. The cherry blossoms in our yard were in beautiful bloom and I couldn't resist cutting some to put in a vase. They have to be my most favourite flower!

Firstly - a grey and white duet combo. Gives such a beautiful lux ambience. The grey is ever so soft and subtle against the white legs.

We also recently completed this custom order of a full grey trestle table with grey top and legs for another lovely client in Melbourne.

We call our Grey Coastal trestle table in our Coastal range 'Pebble Beach'. I had been wanting to take photos of a trestle at the old un-used dairy co-op on our town for so long now. The grey and timber combination was the perfect excuse. The colours look stunning against the backdrop of the co-op.

White Sand dining trestle table at beautiful Berry NSW

I think I can honestly say that this was my most favourite photo shoot to date! We were so lucky to be able to photograph our White Sand dining trestle table in the hedged gardens of the beautiful Berry Courthouse which is in the gorgeous town of Berry in NSW (just 10 minutes from us!). Some lovely friends of ours from Berry had a surprise (!!) wedding in the gardens and we were able to use it the next day to take a few happy snaps of our trestle babies.

Blossoms are one of my favourite flowers. They are just so beautiful. But I always find it so sad that they are with us for such a short time. Why can't it be longer.... It made me realise that gardening has taught me many things. Patience (waiting for those little seeds and bulbs to grow), persistance (watering, watering, watering), preparation (fertilising and preparing soil ready for growth). Blossom trees in particular have taught me contentment and gratefulness - to be happy that they are here at all even if it is shorter than I would like!

It was so hard to pick between all the photos so I have probably included way too many here but I couldn't help myself. It was like trying to choose between my children! I hope you enjoy them as much as I have :-)

We are absolutely blown away that Etsy would even consider us for such an award.

Whenever someone asks me where I got something it has ususally come from Etsy, or somewhere like the wonderful folks at Down That Little Lane or Hard to Find.

There is an amazing panel of judges chosing the winners of the different categories and there is also a 'People's Choice' award given to the most popular Finalist. The winner will be deciced by public vote and will be able to go to New York (!) and meet with the Etsy Headquarters folk to pick their creative brains. What an amazing opportunity!

New dining trestle table range!

We are so excited to announce a new dining trestle table has been added to our Traditional range! This trestle is made of the same materials and in the same style as the trestle desks in our Traditional range but we have teamed the table top with our A-frame trestle legs which were specifically designed for dining tables. The A-frame trestle legs work really well for dining as they provide extra leg room for people sitting on either end of the trestle table. They also add a lovely formal elegance to the trestle design which really suits dining spaces.

Our Traditional dining table comes natural as pictured below or in a number of stains including Oak, Jarrah, Teak, Golden Teak, Black, Brown Japan, Mahogany and Elm.

We can't wait to make yours for you!
