I’m sure the Heal’s in-house design team were pretty chuffed at the result and so they should be. You’ll have to take my word for it, but the Cooks Oak Table really is beautiful – to look at and to touch.
When I saw it instore, I spent a lot of time stroking the solid oak, admiring the beautiful joints, and opening and closing the impeccably crafted drawers – six in all, and nice and roomy too.
There’s also a hanging rail at each end, for tea cloths, kitchen towels or even utentils hung on hooks.
As you can see, Heal’s have taken the traditional shape and proportions of the classic kitchen table and given it their own distinctive makeover with clean contemporay lines.
They’ve also added a modern twist by offering a choice of materials for the table top. There’s traditional solid oak to match the legs, classic Carrara marble (pictured above) or contemporay concrete (below).
