Gorgeous tablesMar 10, 2010
Occasional tables are something I find hard to buy â Iâm not talking about the classicsÂ (Saarinen tables and all those beauties) as everyone stocks those. Iâm talking about show stopping rock star status occasional tables with personality.Â I am obsessed with tables (no idea why) except they can completelyÂ change the language of a space by adding another dimension.Â In my pad I have a whole hodge podge of styles butÂ Iâm finding its rather like shoes you can never have enough. Anyway good news Iâve found some beauties (the first of which is pictured below) .Â Itâs a bit bonkers and not what you would expect in a table but super chic.Â Weâve also found some old lumps of wood by a collective in Africa crafted into the sweetest little side tables and if it wasnât for the fact that they are so heavyÂ I would have sneaked them out of the store already. They key with occasional tables is I thinkÂ to stylishly mix styles âÂ someone mentioned recently when they entered the store âits eclecticism run amokâ. Iâm guessing thatâs a good thing right? Our newest find, love these tables in the store we have scattered them aroundÂ with our poodles sitting fantastically on top. We have also found something similar to this - not quite so rustic but I must say when you juxtapose rough surfaces and textures with deep matt velvety walls the overall effect is quite intoxicating.
