Gioia… The name of our table lamp is as sweet to pronounce as the light that...
“September, the month that really fizzes! The month when you are back home again, and you feel like changing everything, moving everything… And at the same time, your tastes are evolving. From the choice of curtain fabric to the colour of a rug, from the design of a light fitting to that of a bench. It’s all a good pretext to turn things upside down and to do things differently in this new season. I see it as a sort of renaissance, full of amazing energy, because our range of furnishings is developing beautifully, concentrating on the living room in a style that speaks of freedom and of well-established taste. A universe that is graphic and modern yet tinged with vintage references. The story starts with the Nonna sofa which is now bigger, in lighter and softer colours, and which goes just as well with a polished concrete floor as it does with an old wood floor. Just like the fringed poof that matches it this season. In a square format, discreet and elegant, it can appear and disappear as fast as a surprise guest! This stylish seating goes well with our Carlotta coffee table, delightfully radical-chic with its bronze smoked glass top. A visual delight that you will also find in the form of an side table – monochrome and lacquered – that will be equally happy in your living room or your bedroom. And of course I must tell you about our Pio chair! Its delightfully retro shape, that comes in mock leather or felt, guarantees maximum comfort and is associated with a minimalist framework in matt black steel. How exciting it is to at last see these pieces come to life after months of planning and of work hand in hand with our Italian master craftsmen. I hope that this new product line will bring you as much pleasure as it did to us during its creation! For a closer look, I and the whole Socialite Family team look forward to welcoming you to our shop at 12 rue Saint-Fiacre (Paris IIᵉ).”

The Carlotta occasional table in lacquered beech wood is one of the classics of The Socialite Family, as is its coffee table version. Discover this model in full colour.
The Socialite Family brand’s aesthetic is all about her: Constance Gennari, our founder and artistic director, who, thanks to her Franco-Italian roots, has acquired a unique sensibility where her background and a design culture punctuated by vintage inspirations come together.
The Carlotta occasional table pays a vibrant tribute to this. And also to the 20th-century French designer, Charlotte Perriand, to whom this design with its Italian name refers. A strong woman, with a prolific and fascinating output, who paid great attention to the details of her creations. With ours, it is the colourful and, above all, the shiny lacquered finish of the beechwood legs that makes the difference. So the Carlotta occasional table is sure to find a home in both large and small spaces. Play with scale by putting it alongside a Carlotta coffee table for the most precious and glossy look imaginable.
The Carlotta occasional table is a fusion of carved wood and lacquer. It strikes the perfect balance between the renowned skills of our specialist craftsmen and a timeless look that will fit in beautifully in your home:
• Frame in lacquered beech wood made in Italy: black, red or green. An elegant carved wooden structure illuminated by the lacquer. In the same way as on our coffee table and our Gioia table lamp.
• Height 50 cm – Diameter 50 cm: the perfect size, which makes the Carlotta occasional table ideal for both large and small spaces.
Perfect as a bedside table, or as a side table for your living room, beside your bookshelves, in your hall or your office, the Carlotta can be used alone or in combination.
So it’s over to you to use the mirror effect of its lacquer to add the finishing touch your decoration or to complete the scene you’ve already started to set with its counterpart, the coffee table. With its smooth, pleasant feel and curved shape, the sculptural look of the Carlotta occasional table bis both calming and fascinating. It will be endlessly admired.
And of course I must tell you about our Pio chair! Its delightfully retro shape, that comes in mock leather or felt, guarantees maximum comfort and is associated with a minimalist framework in matt black steel (...)
