Design Story Behind the Initially Side Table

1x1 Modern Design Story Initially

1x1 Modern Initially Side TableOne of our most popular side tables is the Initially side table. We think it is because it is a type of a side table that you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else. As originally designed, it has very weird proportions, much deeper than it is wide (whereas most furniture is either much wider than it is deep, or at best, square-ish). Initially's design came about because one of our customers bought a really long Nicoletti sofa, with an extra long armrest. When she put that sofa against the only wall in her condo where it would fit, she had only about a foot of space left between the sofa and the end of the wall.

When she went about trying to find a side table or end table that would complement her sofa, she found that if the side table was deep enough to match the armrest, then it would be too wide for the wall, and if it was narrow enough to fit within the wall space she had, then the side table would be too shallow to be useful from the sofa seat.

That's when she was inspired by a modern and simple desk that she had seen at a Park Hyatt hotel, and came to us to make it for her. We were very happy to be able to provide her with a custom made, made to measure, modern furniture that fit her narrow space and long armrest perfectly.
