Catalog Pick: Fretwork Console

This Fretwork Console table from West Elm is an instant classic. Love the slightest touch of our beloved fret on a weathered finish.


The lines are so straight and clean. Nothing too jumbly and geometric. This is the kind of table that will see so many iterations of your home and never skip a beat. I feel like I'm always looking for these more petite consoles...glad to add this one to my Rolodex.

WE also carries it in a nightstand...works just as well in a smaller, bedroom-friendly version:



What do you think of this take on fretwork?

  1. I've never been in a West Elm store--they do have real stores, right?--but I really like this table and its barely-there nod to Chnoiserie, as filtered through a tailored, late-1930s aesththetic. Francis Elkins might have used such a subdued design--think Zellerbach house--and she would have definitely preferred this discreet finish to a shiny lacquer one. Of the two, though I like the ratio of ornament-to-frame better on the nightstand version. Either way, since I don't get West Elm's catalog, I would never have even known about this handsome design if you hadn't posted it. Thanks for the heads-up.
