Blending the boundary between leisure and design | Play-Style from Cornilleau

Fresh in from French design brand, Cornilleau, the Play-Style collection features meticulously crafted ping-pong tables that elegantly shape-shift into designer furniture for indoors and outdoors. Switching between the two modes in an instant, Cornilleau celebrates the joy of getting together with friends this summer. 

And with the 2024 Paris Olympics well and truly in sight (and Wimbledon for the tennis fans), it’s only right that we share some design news of the sporting kind. If like us you were also unaware, yes, table tennis is an olympic sport. In fact, the International Olympic Committee believes table tennis is the most participated sport in the world! So join in and have yourself a mini tournament at home, but in style.

In & Outdoor Origin Ping-Pong Table, £1,995

A brand rich in history, Cornilleau was originally established as precision French cabinet makers in 1946 and table tennis connoisseurs since 1969, so they know a thing or two about excellent design. Within Play-Style is the Origin collection, an ode to the brand’s cabinet making craft. The tables draw inspiration from nature with the integration of solid wood, strong steel and matte-finishes, resulting in a flawless addition that maximises any space. 

Cornilleau’s superior sustainable materials are lab-tested for longevity, with a guaranteed lifespan of at least 10 years, as well as repairs on hand for 20. Weather-resistant moabi wood makes up the table legs, which Cornilleau has enhanced with an anti-UV treatment for even more long term protection.

So, when it’s time to stop serving the ball and time to start serving your favourite summer sharers, simply remove the net, add your chairs, perfect the tablescape, and you’re good to go! The Origin ping-pong table seats up to eight of your loved ones with plenty of space to spare. Also available in a medium size (closer to a typical dining table’s measurements to suit a slightly smaller space) seating up to six guests and maintaining all the same attributes as the full size.

However, If football is more your thing, Cornilleau’s Origin collection also includes the indoor and outdoor football table designed in collaboration with French football table specialists, Stella. Showcasing the very best features from both brands, the eco-designed football table is weather resistant, made with the same moabi wood legs with a steel frame and rods, as well as aluminium players and a Gerflex playing surface. What better way to get your football fix in between watching the Euros?!

The third contender in Cornilleau’s Play-Style team is the indoor and outdoor pool table from the Hyphen collection. Which is certainly an heirloom piece to pass down through generations. With a slim silhouette fit for the modern home, the best part is you can select whatever finishes will sit amongst your space best. Whether that’s a black or white frame, paired with either a stone or wood effect table top (which is smartly stored underneath!), your guests will undeniably be impressed when the baize is revealed post meal.

As well as entertaining at home, each piece from Cornillieu’s Play-Style series has been designed to transform spaces in hotels, offices and communal areas into welcoming environments where visitors can relax. Cornillieu’s innovation on quality, longevity and simple maintenance means that each piece is expertly equipped for a lifetime of fun and games.
