I will share something useful with you some day soon. Promise.
But for now, let's continue on my recent journey to rearrange my living room, shall we?
So, I painted the fireplace wall. Then I inherited this beautiful behemoth. Next I started to consider a natural, more neutral rug. and just this weekend I upholstered a top for the bench by the fireplace.
Well, the other day I was helping this friend (and client) sourcing accent tables and ottomans for her living room and family room. We were liking the Target knock off of a Panton table (that Erin write about here), but couldn't find details (like measurements) online.
Then I remembered: not only did I have one of the tables in my trunk (for this client), but my friend and I havebasically the same couch--this one, in different colors and lengths.
So like any good friend/ crazy designer, I brought the table in to see if it would work with the couch. The verdict: no go to use two as a coffee table (too tall), but they sure are fabulous as side tables! When I was at Target this weekend I bought a second one (on clearance already!?!) and have been testing them out.
With a rug swatch, naturally.
It's a pretty big shift from the solid tables I'm so used to (remember?). So we'll see.
It's funny how making one change in a nearly-finished room can lead to reconsidering everything. Has this ever happened to you?
P.S. Hi all you new followers, thanks so much for being here!! Am I scaring you with this nonsense of late? I hope you'll stick around....
