Custom Australian Chestnut trestle table

We recently completed a lovely custom order for a client in Perth, WA who wanted a small trestle desk to match a kitchen table he already had. The kitchen table top was made of Australian Chestnut so we made the trestle top out of the same timber and kept the edges square. The legs were from our Coloured range - 'Milky White', with matching trestle shelves.

Australian Chestnut is a gorgeous timber. We finished it in a gloss which was so smooth to touch. We could not stop running our fingertips along the table top, it was so silky smooth!

We had fun styling it for some girl's trestle desk inspiration for you.

Artist Studio trestle shoot - Zoe Sophocleous

I have admired the art of Zoe Sophocleous for many years now. She is a local artist here on the NSW South Coast and her studio is currently in Shoalhaven Heads - a gorgeous beach town on Seven Mile Beach. We first met at playgroup and bonded immediately over stories of vomit and toddler tantrums as all mums at playgroups do! Our youngest sons are both the same age and have the same name as well. She has become a very dear friend of ours.

We recently had the opportunity to take some photos of our Traditional Oak trestle table in her studio. I can honestly say I think it was my most favourite trestle shoot ever. Every inch of the walls in her home was filled with the most amazing artwork. It is the most colourful and vibrant space I have seen. I think I took 100 photos of the one table I was just so taken with the backdrop and location. Every photo is my favourite and it was almost torture to pick only a few to share with you!

Office mood board by The Little Design Corner

The Little Design Corner is a fabulous website that provides daily inspiration for all things interior design, homewares, furniture and other fun stuff that we here at PandT completely obssess over! We were thrilled that Clare who founded The Little Design Corner recently included our Milky White trestle desk as part of an office inspiration moodboard she collated. I am a huge fan of Scandinavian interiors (our little trestle house is all white, black and grey inside and out!) and am loving this office space. It has such a calm feel to it. I can totally imagine emailing you all about your trestle inquiries on that gorgeous black chair looking at the cute black birdie throwing all my naughty chocolate bar wrappers in that gorgeous Le sac wastepaper basket :-)
