With style!

I have fallen in love with this console table from Ethan Allen's "Glamour" collection. The table is a wood veneer, made from some exotic (and less expensive) woods, so it looks dark and sleek and modern but is more affordable than a solid wood piece. I'd prefer solid wood, but the table is so stylish and affordable that I can't pass it up. It's precisely the piece I've been seeking for my living room!

It's a perfect size (18"w x 30"h x 58" l) for the location in question, and represents the beginning of my living room *rejuvenation*!. I love the table's elegant lines but also its simplicity, and its sensual curves will update and complement the curves in our existing antique pieces. To my eye, the table has an Art Deco quality to it, which is always sleek and timeless. David gave me his vote to buy it when I came home tonight with photos on my camera. He's so easy to love sometimes.

  1. It's lovely when you find just what you are looking for.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog, I have all the tools of a serious artisan but don't know if I have the skills yet, I tend to buy lovely crafty things but never want to use them because I just want to keep them nice.
