Antique Side Tables & Antique Low Boys

Antiques side tables covers a range of different styles of small tables. Early (17th century) oak side tables normally have stretchers connecting the turned legs (either in a square or H shape) and often have one drawer or no drawers.

By Georgian times styles had changed and the side table evolved into the three-drawer low boy, which was used as a ladies dressing table or as a writing table. Fine quality low-boys have cabriole legs, sometimes with extra shaping to the knee and feet. The most prestigious examples have cabriole legs both front and back. Country low boys with straight legs, often chamfered, have their own appeal with simpler design and clean lines.

There are also many wonderful antique country side tables from the 18th century, in woods such as oak, elm and fruitwood, with more primitive robust styling, but still with a lot of charm and character.

We stock a range of different antique side tables from the 17th and 18th centuries, and Georgian low boys in oak or mahogany.
