Athena Nesting Tables
It was my pleasure to interview our friends at The Inspire Blog, about the Athena nesting tables. These tables are both stunning and stylish. We couldn’t wait to ask about the design and learn a bit more about the manufacturing process of these beautiful interior design pieces.
LonsDesigns: The Athena nesting tables look to be of a very high quality, both the base and the glass top. Can you talk about the manufacturing process?
Saguna Kochhar for The Inspire Blog: “The Athena nesting tables are really well made, with a lot of attention paid to the finishing of the product. The glass is 8mm thick and tempered which increases the durability. The designs on the sides are welded to the frame, increasing the stability of the tables. All the corners are hand-polished which creates a clean, beautiful finish. And of course, the chrome plating gives these tables that gorgeous contemporary flare.”
LonsDesigns: For those unfamiliar with nesting tables, in your opinion, what area of the home would they work best?
Saguna: “Nesting tables are so great because they are so versatile. There are almost no limits to where you can use them. We quite often see them used as a side table in a living room. Keep your side lamp and a pretty decorative accessory on the larger table and pull out the smaller pieces to use around the room when you have guests over. They tuck away neatly which is perfect for smaller spaces. You can use them as a bedside table with the smaller pieces pulled out slightly to create a pretty step table effect. Glass tables are nice in a sun-filled hallway, while wooden ones are perfect for a rec room to pull out when you want to have your dinner in front of the TV. There are also no rules that say they all have to be kept together. Place the three tables from one set around the seating in your room for a tied-together look.”
LonsDesigns: Can the nesting tables and other pieces found on the Inspire now website be purchased online?
Saguna: “The inspireathome.com website is a great reference tool if you are looking for a certain piece to fit your room or space. All the information that you need about the product is there, including beautiful pictures, detailed descriptions, dimensions, materials, etc. Because we are a distributor, we don’t sell the products directly off of our website. But there is a quick WHERE TO BUY form – just let us know which product you’re interested in and in which area you live (a postal code usually works best) and we will get back to you with a list of dealers near you who carry what you are looking for.”
