Nests of tables were an ingenious space saving late 18th Century invention. Consisting of three or four tables. Edwardian nests of tables are about two thirds the height of Regency ones and considerably less expensive. Early nests were light and elegantly simple in design and they became more ornate in the 19th Century before returning to the Georgian style. The most common woods used were mahogany and rosewood. The largest table tops are frequently paler than the smaller tables, with more often being exposed to the sunlight.
