Well, everything old becomes new again at some stage and if a trestle table is amongst your cobweb covered stash, dust it off and give it centre stage in your home.
The trestle table is trending now! It must be true, we read it on Houzz.
The trestle table has trended in and out of fashion since it was first devised as a dining table in medieval times, Houzz says.
While you’ll still see trestle tables in dining rooms, the hippest of the hipsters are placing trestle tables in their home office or study.
(Still sporting a corner desk with draws in your study? Hang your head in shame!)
The best part about this trend is that is doesn’t cost the earth.
If you prefer functionality over form, head to Bunnings and pick up a trestle table for less than $50.
But if you prefer style with substance, check out Ikea where you can get a snazzy black and white Linnmon / Oddvald combo for just under $100.
And, if you’re feeling particularly minimalist, why not ditch the table and just buy the trestle. Check out Ikea’s Finnvard in birch. So edgy.
