The Mika Burl Wood Side Table: A breakdown


At the heart of the Mika Side Table is the captivating beauty of burl wood - and the two main burls used here are elm burl and poplar burl veneers on top of bent plywood.

Burl wood is formed due to stressors and trauma to a tree.

Burl wood is a highly prized material known for its unique and irregular grain patterns, bringing an element of natural artistry to the table. Each table becomes a work of art in its own right, as the natural variations in the wood grain mean that every piece is different and one-of-a-kind.


As there is a growing emphasis on quiet luxury interiors, burl wood furniture like Mika are a great addition to spruce up your home. Burl wood is often associated with refinement and class, owing to burl wood’s rarity.

For example, pairing the side table with neutral colours and other materials like velvet or marble can exude elegance and opulence. You can also consider pairing the Mika Burl Wood Side Table with some of our other pieces like the Marlow Performance Bouclé Curve Sofa or the Owen Sofa.

Mika fits seamlessly beside any sofa or armchair.

But, with its sophisticated design and luxurious burl wood finish, Mika is also versatile enough to complement various interior styles like mid-century modern and contemporary homes.


Designed with a keen eye for aesthetics, Mika’s sleek cylindrical form contributes to a modern yet timeless design that can seamlessly integrate into your home. The alternating pieces of elm and poplar burl veneers form a beautiful contrast, creating a visually interesting piece.
