You can try not to be charmed by the Esme collection, but with those rounded edges and splayed solid-ash legs, resistance is futile. Its 1960s television design delights every time. Made by a family-run manufacturer, who are experts on making smooth curves. They’ve got bending plywood sheets and adding an ash veneer down to a fine art. There are no handles on the drawers to spoil those clean lines - just a lip that’s easy to pull open. The legs are tapered, rounded and coated with a clear lacquer.
