Woah-wee, you guys are an opinionated bunch! I love it! Thanks for weighing in on the lamps! Since I’m still on my painting break and it’s too hot to be outside, I’ve been doing a little online browsing. In the Living Room Plans I stated the side table was questionable. I do love the legginess, but the color is too dark and it’s a little too tall.
Sure I could paint it a lighter color, but the number of painted pieces in this room is starting to add up and I prefer a mix of natural, upholstered and painted pieces in a room. I know I want something airy to balance the weight of the heavy pieces, and I’m leaning towards a round shape since most of the furniture has such straight lines.
You know how you tend to forget about certain stores? Crate & Barrel is one of those stores for me, but when Megan showed us her beautiful new end tables from there, I hopped over and found a few I loved as well.
|Jules Accent Tables $300|
|Moreno Nesting Table $400|
I really love the brass finish, but those prices are a little steep for me, especially since the table isn’t a centerpiece of my Living Room. So I moved on to Pier 1.
|3-Tier Mosaic Table $150|
Then the goldmine that is Overstock.
|Argento Accent Table $120|
Not what I’m looking for, but who knew Overstock had acrylic tables?!
|Acrylic Nesting Tables $125|
Smart Bargains is my other favorite online discount site. They have a few tables that are definitely in a more comfortable price range.
|Neo Barrel Table $80|
|Diagonal Linea Barrel Table $80|
|Twist Barrel Table $80|
I was leaning towards one of these, when I spied these yummy images on Pinterest.
I was drooling over all the gold accents and coffee tables, when it dawned on me that I have the end table version of that coffee table! Well, probably an imitation of that coffee table since I found it at Home Goods. And mine has black legs, but that’s easily rectified! And it’s square, not round like I was hoping, but I already own it, so it’s free! Even better than round! It currently lives in our Guest Room, but fingers crossed the switcheroo works.
What retailers do you love, but tend to forget about? Do you forget about furniture in your home too?
