April 2, 2009Mid-Century Home – The Perfect Table
We are on the search for the perfect table. I mean, you have to buy some furniture when you buy a new house, right? And a table is really the only thing we don’t have. Our house has tons and tons of built-ins, including everything for all the bedrooms and the bathrooms. We bought living room furniture when we moved into our rental, and it looks great in the new living room. That doesn’t really leave us with much. Except the kitchen table.
Our first choice is high quality vintage. We are going to spend a year or so scouring every flea market, auction, estate sale and garage sale we can find looking for the perfect table. And I have seen them in other people’s houses, so I know they exist. My ideal table would be the rounded off rectangle with boomarang back chairs.
If we don’t find a table in one year, we are going with the back-up plan: Skovby
The reason we are choosing them is twofold. Reason the first: they have the rounded off rectangle table I am so interested in. Reason the second: The line is carried by the local furniture store where we buy all of our furniture, so it is perfect.
Here is the style of chair that we like.
Here is the style of table.
So, that is the plan so far. Do you like? Not like? Have a better idea? Let me know!
