Design Sleuth: Stacked and Wall-Mounted Tables as Kitchen Storage

October 24, 2016

I bought my secondhand, freestanding kitchen units off a man on an industrial estate in the middle of nowhere, so I am seldom to be found in the concept stores and showrooms of South London.

That said, leafing through the autumn/winter lookbook of Neptune, a 20-year-old British brand with branches in South London and across the UK, I was intrigued by a kitchen design hack featuring a stacked kitchen island. 

Design Sleuth Stacked and WallMounted Tables as Kitchen Storage In the center of this kitchen, the stylists at the showroom have stacked two industrial look coffee tables to create an open kitchen island and worktop. (Evidently, they’ve fashioned an extra surface at the base of the structure to create a third wooden shelf.)

Design Sleuth Stacked and WallMounted Tables as Kitchen Storage The designers have achieved this with their new, box frame range of tables, the Carter range. This is Neptune’s first foray into the industrial design aesthetic. The tables are crafted from aged, solid oak and a slim, powder coated steel frame. A slim console costs £390 (\$507), a squat coffee table £590 (\$767), and a simple side table £4\10 (\$533), but there’s nothing stopping you re creating the look with any similar box frame design. Ikea, Maisons du Monde, and West Elm all stock similar designs.
