I’ve always got plans and improvements for my home in the back of my mind. I really do love our living room
, but the one item I’d really love is a new coffee table. We actually have never bought a coffee table (and we’ve been married over 15 years). We use a clunky cedar chest (that was from my husband’s grandma), but it’s not what I really want there. It does the job, but it’s too big for the space and the style is not what appeals to me.
What a really want, is a round, midcentury styled coffee table. I think round is great with kids, no risk of heads being hit on sharp corners. And it gives a nice flow to the space. We have a small living room, so something open and light would be great. I don’t want to weigh down the limited space that we do have.
My husband told me he’d like to buy a coffee table for me for Valentine’s Day. I was so pleased. Who needs fancy underwear and jewelry when you can have fabulous furniture? So, I’ve been on the hunt and these are my two contenders. I’m leaning towards the marble top for the durability with 3 kids and a hubby, but really I love both. Which would you pick and why?
It might be cheesy to be considering a fake Eames coffee table, but the real thing costs about $1000 (a little out of my budget). But, this fake has really great reviews and its a very low risk purchase.
PS. You should check out PoppyHaus’s living room. How lovely, right? Our living rooms are very similar with the built ins. I love Heather’s style so much. Her coffee table is great, I asked her about it, it’s IKEA! (but sadly not made anymore).
