Don’t forget: Friday is the last day to enter for a free custom mood board!
I had to put coffee in quotation marks because around these parts, if you dare put a coffee on our living room table prepare for spillage! Our tables are more like snack/arts-and-crafts tables for Anak : ] The pair of coffee tables currently in our living room were a dumpster find. They’re sturdy and work just fine in the space but I’d prefer something that let’s my cowhide
moo sing a bit more.I had included these tables in my original mood board but seeing them in the space made me think that maybe something more circular would compliment the space better. I feel like there are already plenty of harsh angles (e.g. the dining room table, TV console, etc.) and it’s good to get a good mix of harsh and soft angles to create visual harmony. I do like the idea of a pair of smaller surfaces to make them easy to move around (and out of the way of pillow trampolining).
Here’s what I’m thinking:Cloth? Hm, maybe not the best idea. But I do love the rust color!This antique nickel coffee table from India may be just the ticket. I’d love to incorporate some more metallic surfaces and this one does the job without being too industrial. Just not so sure if it’ll have a place in our home if my tastes evolve…Another metallic option. Garden stools just feel so trendy though. Lord knows I did ride the chevron band wagon for quite some time so maybe I’m not one to talk.These are just so cool! They kinda epitomize angular though. Next!This seems interesting and fits the bill but it just doesn’t get me excited.This is too fun! And I did want to incorporate a pop of yellow. Is it too modern though? This piece is too unique not to be a contender.I think this one could work really well despite being more on the angular side. I’m a bit concerned about it’s future use though. And perhaps it adds too much a modern industrial vibe.Logs seem nice and add an earthy vibe (and I might be able to get some for free) but they’re sorta tough to pull a toddler sized chair up to. Okay, last one, promise!These are acrylic nesting tables. They definitely wouldn’t detract from the cowhide and they’re easy to wipe down. Cause if Anak’s using ‘em, there sorta perma-sticky.
I think my top picks are the antique nickel coffee table, the mod yellow/black/oak circular table, the square wood top/metal legs table, and the acrylic nesting tables. I think I’ll start monitoring Craigslist in the meantime, too.
Which are your favorites? Any suggestions? I’m seriously undecided so any feedback/opinions would be most welcomed : ]
