Whether you call it a centre table or a center table (hello Americans!), there is no doubt that these pieces are incredibly useful and attractive in the modern interior.

We have a magnificent William IV mahogany centre table possibly by Gillows of Lancaster & London featuring the neo-classical taste of Thomas Hope.  The circular top is of a particularly finely grained mahogany with an attractively wide mahogany crossbanded border with ebony stringing above a plain frieze, and it is supported on a turned carved central pedestal with an ebony inlaid triform base with bold lions paw feet of particularly fine quality, with sunken brass castors.

We have also worked with other centre tables in the past, and we have a highlight from our archive below.

This magnificent Regency period rosewood centre table features a rosewood top of superb colour and is cross-banded with foliate and scrolled brass-inlaid calamander wood.  The top also has gilt-metal mounts around the circumference of the frieze, and the whole stands on a spiral turned and carved parcel-gilt column pedestal with tri-form platform base, with ormolu mounts, terminating in gilded scrolls and block feet.
