The tulip table is something almost all designers dream about and most end up owning at some point. . . . I’ve been dreaming about them for some time — see my “desperately seeking Saarinen” post from over a year ago . . .
I mentioned a little while ago that I’d gone off my rocker and decided to totally re-shuffle most of the whole house. I made a detailed list and sent it to the husband with the email title “my evil plan”. And it included a tulip!
After all the work of hefting, moving and lugging furniture for the Green Shag sale on Saturday, I had a few loose pennies in my pocket and a hankering to check out Modern Vintage Decor, a shop I had found via my friend Craig and his list. Thanks also to Craig, I knew there was a Tulip table waiting there with my name on it.
It frees up so much more room than the beer-pong-battered table we had been using before (now in the basement maybe for future beer-pong tournaments).
It’s not the real thing or even a Burke but I still love it and all its one-legged goodness.
The inviting circular shape plays well with the coffee table and softens the whole room.
I even did a bit of fall/Halloween styling, pulling a ceramic pumpkin out of my stash and switching out the white candle holders for these gorgeous turned wood ones that JT’s cousin made for us as a wedding gift.
Yep, here’s the dog shot. Attack of the two-headed couch chameleon. I guess they like the new table too . . .
So that’s step one of the new Living Analog Living Room . . . . more craziness (as ever) to come!
P.S. Happy Birthday (again) Sister! I haven’t told the interwebs yet but we are planning your wedding! Oops, I just did. Now maybe I’ll do a post about it!
