I found myself surveying my living room one day last week, feeling that something was missing.
Great couch-check! Pop of color-check! Comfy yet elegant-check! My eyes kept roving as I surveyed the scene, not content but not quite sure what was missing. Then my eyes landed on my coffee table. Bingo!
My intention had always been that my living room coffee table serve a dual purpose: be both a place where guests can place their cups and snacks for informal gatherings as well as a home for some select coffee table books and tchatchkies. The reality of what ended up happening is that my coffee table and the coffee table books are buried under fabric swatches, kids homework, and myriad other things that have accumulated. What started out as a centerpiece has turned into yet another pile.
With the thought of clearing the clutter to its various designated homes, I began thinking about what makes for an ideal coffee table. In a previous post I shared some recommendations for excellent, conversation-provoking coffee table books.
Today, I want to share some unique coffee tables and the beautiful things that adorn them.
