The Matthew Hilton-designed Bridge table is another great design from the Heal's Scandinavian season.
Just a look at the table reveals its mid-century inspired influences, with its elegant tapering legs, and oak or walnut veneer finish. There's a practical twist to this design too: it's able to extend in size. Available in two sizes, the smaller table extends from 110cm up to 160cm, while the larger table is 260cm when extended.
While the table is able to grow or shrink in size, there's no escaping the price you'll be paying for this classic design: the smaller table costs £1095, while the larger version costs £1595.

Like the Hepburn Bed that we featured not too long ago, the Hastoe Windsor Chair is a design by Matthew Hilton for De La Espada.
Here he has taken the traditional Windsor Chair and updated it slightly, although it still maintains a midcentury feel to it. The chair is named after the village new High Wycombe where it is produced. It is available in a choice of ash or American black walnut. Not cheap by any standards at £654, you can console yourself with the fact that it is timeless design that won’t fall out of fashion.
