I've Fallen Hard...

...for this coffee table!

I have never seen another table so gorgeous! The brass bamboo-styled frame is really to die for - I love the shape of the top and lower shelf and how the legs flare out ever so slightly. Why oh why is it way out of my price range?! This is the type of thing that makes me wish I could jump a few years ahead to when I will (though probably still only in my dreams!) be able to spend thousands on a table.



Anyway, I have been hunting for a new coffee table and have not been finding what I want, in my price range. I need some help! Here's another beauty from 1st Dibs...

I'm hoping for a brass, faux bamboo style table. Something like the first photo, or even a set of nesting tables like this image from Lonny (but brass!)...



Nesting tables would be a perfect choice because I can arrange them to fit my teeny apartment now, and they are easily manipulated to become a suitable size for my future house - three piece coffee table, two piece coffee table and end table, etc. I found the below version at Cyan Design, which is much brassier in person, but they look like they could be a bit tippy and so I am still not 100% sold...


While searching I found an old blog post by Mrs. Limestone (who I read everyday and love) about her search for a similar style table. First up, this French-inspired goodie from Drexel Heritage. Like it, but it's not bamboo...

I also like this Mrs. Limestone selection from Restoration Hardware. But again, not bamboo. And it doesn't seem to be available anymore...



Here's the Bassett table that Mrs. Limestone went with. I really like the color and lower shelf, but not bamboo either...

Mrs. Limestone's actual table. It looks great!



So, here's where I need some help. If you know where I can find my dream coffee table/nesting tables, or have any other brilliant ideas for me, I would LOVE to hear from you!

  1. saara - where is the first coffee table from (your bamboo love?) I haven't seen it before but it is beautiful!

  2. I will keep an eye out for you. I love that first table too, just gorgeous! I like that you could display favorite books without worrying that they may get messed up. My husband would probably lay a wet glass on my books and ruin the covers:(

  3. Wish I could help! Just found a fab brass bamboo side table base at my local Goodwill for $8. Just needs a glass top & I'm good to go. Best of luck with the search - had fun at your blog - I'll be back!

  4. The living room carpet looks so nice! And it would be nicer if it is well maintained and you'll be needing a skilled carpet cleaner (Fort Myers) to handle the situation. Just make sure that they are using green products in (Fort Myers) carpet cleaning to not harm both the carpet and planet Earth.
