  • The ‘Anneau’ console table, designed by Herve van der Straeten, is a stunning example of his unique approach to furniture design. This exquisite piece showcases his mastery of blending art and functionality. The word "Anneau" means "ring" in French, and the design of this console table is characterised by an eye-catching statement circular base. The table's elegant and sculptural form is a testament to the designer’s artistic flair for the unexpected.
