A Spotlight on Wensum
A Spotlight on Wensum
9th October 2023

Wensum was our very first capsule furniture collection featuring dining chairs, pedestal tables, coffee tables and side tables - designed by Birdie to seamlessly sit with our collections of rugs, soft furnishings, tableware and lighting. Inspired by Mid Century design, the collection has an un-fussy look, characterised by clean lines and chic silhouettes, which sits perfectly in traditional and contemporary interiors. Each piece is available in three bold colours- sage green, petrol blue and taupe to suit any scheme and to carry from season to season. Read on for our favourite ways to style each piece...

Wensum Circular Table 

This is the perfect multi purpose table. Use it as a side table next to an armchair or sofa, as a pair in a bedroom, or as an occasional table in a hallway. The modest size and tapered legs make this table easy to use almost anywhere in your home.

Wensum Coffee Table 

The classic shape of this table is juxtaposed by its unusual feet which give it a fresh, statement look. Try styling the taupe colour in a conservatory or sitting room with neutral tones and fresh greens for a minimalist scheme, adding in layers of texture for visual interest. The sage green works particularly well in more traditional schemes and blends in perfectly with existing polished pieces, while the petrol blue adds a playful, contemporary touch to Mid Century modern interiors.

Wensum Dining Chair 

These dining chairs are the ultimate combination of style and comfort. With a perfectly positioned backrest and incredibly comfortable seat, these chairs are ideal for leisurely lunches and long dinner parties. We like to add cushions and throws to chairs for mid-winter gatherings, they are such lovely touches that are always appreciated - particularly in draughty older houses! As they are generously proportioned, these stylish chairs also double up as occasional chairs and work very well in home offices too. Choose from three rich colours paired with 100% linen upholstery.

Wensum Pedestal Table 

This table has all of the versatility of the Circular Table in a larger size. Measuring 120cm in diameter, this piece is perfect as a breakfast table, hall table or dining table in a small dining room. The three statement colour ways give this table real impact in a room and make it easy to style with minimal accessories. Try styling it in a hall on one of our Rhombus rugs and a range of decorative objects. A large arrangement of flowers would work well with a small selection of ceramics or sculptural pieces in varying heights.
