Miss Ćesko Coffee & Side Tables by Hardwick & Ćesko

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Hardwick & Ćesko present the launch of their first furniture pieces in April this year, and although a little late, it’s still definately worth the mention because they are so damn adorable! Having just visited the doily factory in Venice myself (no I’m not a 70 year old woman!), the Miss Ćesko coffee and side tables and a perfect contemporary addition to your sleek living space.

These truly distinctive tables are manufactured using the highest quality of materials and are designed and made in Australia by David Hardwick, Head Designer at Hardwick & Ćesko. Australian made – we love that!

The inspiration for these tables stemmed from a fascination David Hardwick had with the intricate detail of crochet and more specifically doilies. If you ask me, I think design reflects the lost tradition within a contemporary context.

“In the design of the tables, it became very important that not only the table-top could replicate the doily, but how the base and stem of the table could accentuate the form of the top without competing with it for attention. Hence the stem of the table is divided in the middle, tapering equally to the top and the bottom, as if the process of creation started at this central point.  The strong, yet simple, circular form of the base providing the stability & support for the contrastingly intricate detail and soft lines of the patterned top” David mentioned in response to an email I sent saying how much I loved the product.

The Coffee table tops are made from either American black walnut from an FSC certified timber source or from white laminate on FSC certified eco plywood. The bases are made out of high quality Australian steel with a white powder-coated finish.
